I took my first Riverboat cruise when I was 9 years old. It was very short because it was for a field trip in my 4th grade class. It was so much fun that as an adult I would later take part of an annual cruise that involves quality dining, dancing, and also serves as a fundraiser event for various causes.
Now, these aren’t cruises that last for long periods of time. You are not on the
I’m a huge fan of the fact that you can have dinner while on the cruise. The above ticket prices are without a dinner, but you still have access to food that you can purchase, such as ice cream, and various other delicious lunches and meals if you decide you’re hungry. The dinner cruises, however, are more costly, but they are quite reasonable. For instance, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9:30, the Captain’s Dinner is $34.95 for adults, $33.95 for seniors, and $24.95 for children. If you don’t want dinner and you just want to sightsee, you’ll be paying anywhere between $11 and $13 less for your ticket.
Now, if you do want to take a longer trip along the river by embarking on an out-of-town departure, you can. For example, the Steamboat Bicentennial Celebration is a 7 to 8 hour tour. Prices can vary based on which day you go and you’re looking at around $95 for an adult ticket, but this does include lunch and dinner.
There are many cruise options available at various times. There are also plenty of places to stay, dine, and play in
. You can make the Riverboat tour the reason for your visit or you can make it a side activity. It is entirely up to you, but it is all fun nonetheless. Cincinnati
