When is the last time you have experienced The Cincy Region?  Now is the time to start planning your next trip on the Ohio River with BB Riverboats.

There is a very palpable romance to a river.  The way it gently flows, winding its way to a destination that is never in sight.  The sheer beauty as the sun kisses off its surface and glistens in a way that almost speaks to you.  The visuals it creates and the feelings that it provides is something that is unmatched in any other place.  BB Riverboats has been cruising right down the middle of the Ohio River entertaining guests and showing them this romance for over 4 decades.

Located just across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati in Newport, Kentucky, they offer a plethora of cruise options available for groups of any size with all of the amenities the group tour industry is looking for.  Conveniently accessible from all the major interstates, BB Riverboats offers free bus parking, a handicapped accessible facility and excursion boats, as well as a crew that will make every one of your guests feel special.  Daytime and evening cruises are available with reserved seating, entertainment, and a delicious buffet prepared by our Executive Chef, Jesus Picazo.  If you do not have the time or need for a full meal or dining cruise, there are afternoon sightseeing cruises available that include historical commentary of our beautiful downtown corridor.  The best part of it all is that it is a very affordable option for all types of groups starting at $24.30 for sightseeing cruises, $36.00 for lunch cruises, and $45.00 for dinner cruises.  There are also group merchandise discounts, comps for escorts and drivers, and group photos.

If you have not been to the Cincy Region in a long time, you have to plan a trip and see what has made it such an attractive group tour destination.  There is easy itinerary planning with the #1 group tour destination in the State of Kentucky – The Ark Encounter, along with the historic Kentucky Bourbon Trail, museums, major league sports, unique dining options, and a city rich in history and things to do.

BB Riverboats is a family business that has operated in the Cincinnati area across 3 generations.  The Bernstein family started as restauranteurs in Cincinnati in 1962 with many historic mainstays in the culinary landscape of Cincinnati such as the Mike Fink Restaurant, El Greco, Benjamin’s, Shirley’s, Crockett’s and the River Café as well as a full service catering company, Current Catering (formerly Bensons Catering).  After so many customers requested a riverboat dining experience, the family launched BB Riverboats in 1979 and has never looked back since.  Currently the third generation of Terri and Ben Bernstein operate the business, though it will not be out of the question that Captain Alan Bernstein will be at the helm on your next cruise.  And if you are truly lucky enough, you may even see the 4th generation running around and helping where they can.  The culture of this family business will be shown to you in the form of its hospitality.  Their guests are coming to their home, and they intend to make you feel welcome every time you visit.
