Our vessel is the Belle of Cincinnati, a majestic and ornate beauty, upon which we will cruise in ultimate comfort and luxury. She 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.
The first day, we’ll travel to Cincinnati, OH and spend the evening at a Drury Inn 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, IN. Settled in the early 1800’s, Aurora is full of historic buildings and small-town charm.
Then, its back on ‘the Belle’ for a cruise through the Markland Locks and Dam, before we dock for the evening in Vevay, IN. From there, we’ll check into the lavish Belterra Casino Resort and enjoy dinner together onsite. Day 3 will find us coasting towards Louisville, KY and have dinner onboard the boat before checking into the Hampton Inn Louisville-North/Clarksville for two evenings.
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 2021 race champions)!
Your trip includes 10 meals:
4 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 3 dinners
(one of which is a Kickback at The Drury Inn)

Join us on this exclusive trip 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 at least once…or again and again!
