The First Deck

BB Riverboats has ample parking along the Ohio River, stationed on the Newport side. There are ramps from the parking lot onto the boat and an elevator down to the first deck. The first deck is known as the Newport Deck, a 200 seated space with large mirrors, a big dance floor, dining area, restrooms and a bar.

While on the cruise, princesses are welcome to leave the first deck and explore the upper outdoor areas and stern of the boat. Picturesque views of the bridges and city skyline are a perfect backdrop for royal photos.

The Princesses

Elsa, Rapunzel, Tiana and Cinderella joined our cruise as royal friends and they knew how to get the party started! The fairy godmother welcomes each princess aboard with the fanfare they deserve, encouraging little gasps and squeals from the youngest princesses on the boat.

Immediately, at the emcee of the fairy godmother, the princesses lead a lesson on what it takes to be a princess: manners. First, a joyful smile. Then, a closed-hand wave. Finished by a royal curtsy.

The two hour cruise bops along with (really great) music, story time, a royal scepter gift from Elsa, a pony race, photos with princesses, a dancing parade and more! The best part, the princesses stay to dance and play for the entire cruise! *Princesses may vary
