We had our rehearsal dinner on a cruise and everyone loved it. We had our own area of the boat and the staff was awesome! my bridesmaid had a slide show and they accommodated with the projector and even found us a laptop to use when her's wouldn't work. On top of that, the food and drink was top of the line! Definitely recommend.!Sent on 05/26/2016

We had our wedding ceremony & reception on board this weekend. Absolutely EVERYTHING was incredible. Missie is the best event planner around, and she loves the boats and her wedding couples. Each and every member of the staff went above and beyond what we asked at every single opportunity. There are no words to describe how incredible this experience has been! The food was great, the cruise was amazing, and you cannot beat the view! Thank you BB Riverboats, Capt. Mike, Missie & Crew -- we'll see you every September for our anniversary!Sent on 09/19/2018

OTF PhotoImages was the photographer and videographer for a wedding in which the couple wanted to get married in the middle of the Ohio River in front of Riverfront Stadium. BB Riverboats did an excellent job of fulfilling the bride/groom requests and accommodated us very well. Highly recommend!
BB Riverboats is by far the most unique wedding experience I've ever had while photographing Dayton weddings and Cincinnati weddings. I rate this A+. The coordinator is awesome is well!!
