BB Riverboats

BB Riverboats began with a deceptive motto and a fleet of zero. In 1977, Ben Bernstein opened a restaurant in a converted steamboat, whose motto was “The Romance of Riverboat Dining.” Intended as tongue-in-cheek, the motto instead confused customers, who arrived hoping for a scenic cruise down the Ohio River. To placate his clientele, Ben Bernstein went into business with riverboat industry veteran Betty Blake, and BB Riverboats—named for their shared initials—was born.

Now run by Bernstein’s son, BB Riverboats has increased its fleet to three vessels, including the Belle of Cincinnati, a riverboat outfitted with Victorian details and two climate-controlled decks. On daily cruises down the Ohio, historical narration compliments the scenery, while passengers play swashbuckling games and learn to read treasure maps on family-friendly pirate cruises. On the company’s dining cruises, visitors drink in the scenery while noshing on a Hawaiian buffet spread or sampling award-winning wines from StoneBrook Winery. Additionally, holiday cruises honor occasions from Valentine’s Day to Thanksgiving.

The riverboat is the centerpiece of Cincinnati's history and this tour is a wonderful introduction to the city from a unique perspective. We traveled on one river boat and another is docked, which serves as the lobby and a reception hall - both are beautifully maintained. The tour lasted about an hour and a half. At the end of the tour, the captain opened the wheelhouse for viewing and a young boy I saw seemed completely entranced by its inner workings. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Food service is available. A wonderful outing for children and adults alike !
