Guest Reviews
  • This far exceeded my expectations. The caliber of the show was amazing and actually unexpected. It held all our employees captivate which considering they range from 17 to 56 years old, I was very impressed. The food was also exceptional and far better quality than i have had on other cruises. So thank you for making our Christmas Party a very enjoyable memorable one. I will recommend you to all our friends and colleges.
  • This is the 3rd time we have cruised on your Showboat and each time it is a very fun and memorable event. Your dancers are very kind to the young children we bring and we have always had an amazing table location right up front. This is a party/dinner that seems to please a mixed bag of people and is a great way to have dinner and entertainment together. Thank you!
  • We had an amazing evening. Thank you
  • Thank you for such a great experience. We look forward to doing it again.
  • We all had a great time and experience. The show was above our expectations. Great work guys.
