The BB Riverboats

Both the Belle of Cincinnati and River Queen are outfitted with state-of-the-art cruising amenities to make your trip comfortable and enjoyable. Decorated in a Victorian style, the 1,000 passenger Belle of Cincinnati features three climate-controlled decks as well as an open-air top deck for optimal views of the skyline. The 350 passenger River Queen offers climate-controlled decks for those who prefer to enjoy the tour from indoors, and it also has a covered third deck with a bar and gift shop.  


The BB Riverboat Cruise Experience

Cincinnati has a rich nautical history — one out of every four steamboats built in the United States were constructed here.  And many of Cincinnati’s earliest inhabitants arrived in the city by boat, so it is fitting to take a boat tour to explore the history of the city. During the hour and a half long tour, your guide will provide an informative and entertaining overview of the history of Cincinnati. You’ll experience the harbor just as it was when it served as the lifeblood of the city. Snacks and beverages are available from the bars and gift shops on each boat.

Travel Tips

- Bring your camera, there will be ample opportunities to take photos of the historic Cincinnati skyline.

- Bring some cash for souvenirs from the gift shop as well as snacks and drinks from the bar.
