About BB Riverboats

It’s the Most Important Day of Your Life—Make it Memorable! Your wedding is your special day and you want it to stand out, so skip the sameness of a typical reception hall or banquet room and have your wedding events aboard a riverboat in Cincinnati! BB Riverboats hosts the most unique weddings and rehearsal dinners in all of Cincinnati. Imagine your afternoon or early evening ceremony enriched by the brilliant views from the Ohio River giving way to a starlit reception with a gorgeous backdrop of the nighttime Cincinnati skyline.

This majestic and ornate beauty offers an unforgettable experience and features three climate-controlled decks each with a full bar, buffet and dance floor. It can comfortably accommodate groups of 50-500. The River Queen is the perfect reminder of a bygone era when riverboats ruled the Ohio.

    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!

    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!
