I have a princess on my hands. She changes her clothes 3 to 4 times a day, loves to wear tiaras and sparkly necklaces and likes to sneak into my make up bag a little too often. Or, maybe she is a diva? Either way, she loved the BB Riverboats Princess Cruise we experienced Saturday.
I made the mistake of telling the little princess about the cruise two days in advance. I heard 3,285 questions until the boat left the dock. What princesses will be there? How big is the boat? How do we get on the boat? Will they give us a dress? What should I wear? Will you please wear high heels and not tennis shoes? That last request was hard to fill because I’m battling some sore runners feet, but I complied! How can you argue with a princess?
Finally, the day arrived. It was pouring rain. But, BB Riverboats always delivers, rain or shine, even if they have to do the event dockside. Fortunately, we were able to leave the dock and cruise down the river.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a beautiful Fairy Godmother who lavished loads of attention on each princess and made us feel special to board the boat. We found our table and set sail. As we cruised down the Ohio, all of the guest princesses lined the dance floor and the Fairy Godmother announced each BB Riverboat princess as she was escorted across the floor by Prince Charming. We met Belle, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Snow White and Ariel. Each princess was given a nice 5×7 color photograph of all of the princesses and were able to walk around, meet the BB Riverboat princesses and have the photo autographed. The Fairy Godmother also gave each princess a special wand.
When we weren’t meeting princesses or getting autographs we danced, learned how to wave and curtsey like a princess and paraded around the boat for other passengers to see our perfected princess wave and smile. The girls all had a blast. Who wouldn’t love showing off their princess skills?
During the cruise the staff had a light lunch for sale (grilled cheese, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches) and soft drinks. Tickets for the cruise are $20 for adults and $16 for children. There are only two cruises left, August 3rd and August 31st, so hurry and book yours now. They are selling out fast. In fact, even though it was on a rainy day, our event was completely sold out.
