April 28th-May 2nd, 2024

Join us for this fun tour that culminates with "The Great Steamboat Race"!  

This iconic American tradition of boat racing, bourbon tasting, and bountiful food is simply unbelievable fun. Just ask any local who will tell you that everyone should experience this annual event that has kicked off the Kentucky Derby for over 55 years! Our vessel is the Belle of Cincinnati, a majestic and ornate beauty, upon which we will cruise in ultimate comfort and luxury. 

Day 1, we'll travel to the Cincinnati, Ohio area for the evening before boarding the beautiful Belle of Cincinnati the following morning. 

On Day 2, we'll depart Newport Landing and begin our voyage on the Ohio River! Our first shore stop is the lovely river town of Aurora, Indiana. Settled in the early 1800's, Aurora is full of historic buildings and idyllic small-town charm. Then, we'll continue our cruise through the Markland Locks and Dam, before docking in Vevay, IN. From there, we'll check into the lavish Belterra Casino Resort and enjoy dinner together onsite. 

Day 3, we check into the Hampton Inn in Louisville. That evening, we will attend a dinner show at the Derby Dinner Playhouse. 

Day 4 will mean it's time for the big finale: Race Day! We will compete against the Belle of Louisville (on her home turf, no less)! Bring your cheerful spirit and help us race the Belle of Cincinnati to victory together!  

Finally, on Day 5, we'll journey home full of wonderful memories (and hopefully as the 2024 race champions)! 

The Belle of Cincinnati features three decks, including an open-air top deck for stunning springtime
sightseeing! Dining areas and dance floors surrounded by lavish Victorian décor will make your time aboard one you'll always remember.
