We just had the American Queen here in Owensboro and if that got you in the mood for a cruise down the Ohio, check this out.

Cincinnati based BB Riverboats has announced that its flagship, the Belle of Cincinnati, will be embarking on a 7-day Fall Cruise Tour to 6 river cities this October 21st through October 27th.

They will be offering an array of lunch, brunch, and dinner cruises throughout the tour as they make their visit from city to city.  Owensboro is among the cities that are scheduled for cruises. Others are Evansville, Henderson, and Paducah.“We are excited to be bringing the Belle of Cincinnati to all of these great river cities this October,” says Alan Bernstein, owner of BB Riverboats.  “It’s very nostalgic traveling from city to city and entertaining the residents of each individual community.  It’s a lot like the old steamboat days!”

The general public is welcome, along with groups and organizations. Private deck parties can be arranged for 50-300 people. Reservations are required and can be made toll free at 1-800-261-8586, or by going online and clicking on the Belle of Cincinnati Fall Cruise Tour on the Specialty Cruise page.
