BB Riverboats ~ Dinner Cruise on the Ohio River ~ GIVEAWAY {CLOSED}

BB Riverboats Top of PageHave you ever gone on a BB Riverboats Dinner Cruise?  These cruises are a wonderful way to experience our city while having fun with friends or family.  Thanks to the kind folks at BB Riverboats we were able to try out their Christian Moerlein Beer & BBQ Dinner Cruise a few weeks back.  Not only did they give us tickets to take the cruise, they also gave me four tickets to give away on Family Friendly Cincinnati!  Before we get to the important details about the giveaway, let me tell you about our fabulous experience on the dinner cruise.

My husband and I went on the cruise with Amy Q. and her husband.  None of us had ever had the BB Riverboats Musicpleasure of a dinner cruise experience, so we had no idea what to expect.  We had a great table right next to a window, but looking around I realized that there really wasn’t a bad seat in the house, because there are so many windows in the dining room, it feels like every table is in close proximity to a window and a gorgeous view.  While we waited for everyone to board the boat and for the beer tasting to start we listened to the cool oldies rock played by The American Kings, a popular local band.  This band was so much fun and made us feel like we were at a party.

BB Riverboats Beer

BB Riverboats teamed up with Christian Moerlein Brewery to put together this cruise, so during the cruise we tasted four different brews from Moerlein (in great little beer glasses that we were able to keep after the cruise).  While we sampling the brews a representative from Moerlein talked about the beers we were tasting and gave us a talk about what made BB Riverboats Buffeteach beer different.  And during the tastings we were served a scrumptious salad, and then it was time for the buffet.  Oh, the buffet.  I’m going to go ahead and speak for my whole group…it was the best buffet we’ve ever been to!  Here’s what was on the menu: carved roast beef with BBQ Sauce, BBQ roasted chicken quarters, pulled pork, grilled marinated vegetables, southern style green beans, baked beans, Saratoga chips, coleslaw, potato salad, marinated cucumber, onions, and tomato salad and cheesecake for dessert.  Coffee, tea, water, and the four samples of beer are included in the price of the cruise, soft drinks and other alcoholic beverages are extra.  The food really was delicious.  I know that menu sounds like some of it is your typical backyard BBQ fare, but it really was better than any backyard BBQ I’ve ever been to.  After dinner we wandered around the decks pretending we were sight-seeing and taking in the beautiful views on both sides of the Ohio River.

You might be wondering if a Beer & BBQ Cruise is necessarily a “family friendly” outing, and to that I say YES it is!  We saw many families on this cruise, and I think had we brought the kids instead of friends they really would have had a blast too (but Mama needed an adult’s night out!).  My kids have been on other BB Riverboat cruises (Pirates!) and they love being out on the river on a big paddleboat and seeing the sights.  All of the kids on this riverboat dinner cruise seemed to be having so much fun, and there were kids of all ages…from infants to teenagers.  Riverboat cruises are not just for out-of-towners, they are a perfect outing for local families as well!  Are you looking for a special way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary?  Or perhaps you are taking a “staycation” this summer and looking for something fun & unique to do.  BB Riverboat cruises are perfect for any occasion.

    I would like to have a night out. Rather than taking our kids, we would invite another couple who needs a break, too!

  2. sharon stark says

    I’ve been working my butt off and need something enjoyable to do. I love bbq and being on the water! Pick me please!!! Thanks

  3. Carol says

    I desperately need a night out and so does my BFF! I have never been on a BB Riverboat cruise, but I think it would be a perfect thing to do on a Friday night!

  4. Nikki Huth says

    18 years ago in August, I took my first ever BBRiverboat dinner cruise to see Hootie and The Blowfish concert at Riverbend. Just recently broken up, I had to find a date last minute. Needless to say…the night was amazing other than the company. The very next night…I met my husband down at Covington Landing, where you used to be (which we miss dearly)! But the running joke all these years has been that my husband gives me grief because he always tell people when I talk about that cruise…that it could have been him with me on that cruise…which could have been if I’d met him one day sooner! The night we did meet, we took a boat ride up the river and one week short of a year later we were married and returned to The Landing with the entire wedding party. Ah the memories on the river! This August, we will celebrate 17 yrs…if we won…I could finish the story with…after 18 yrs he finally got his BBRIVERBOAT cruise with me!!!!!!! And it would be a great experience to share with our two girls, 13 and 11♡ after all these yrs♥

  5. Heather Shults says

    I would love to win this :) My husband and I could use a date out on the river. We haven’t had a romantic night out since our son was born 10 months ago. Plus, we have lived here for 2 years and have yet to do a riverboat experience. Thanks for the chance!

  8. Tracy says

    Would LOVE to win because our family of 3 has not had a vacation in 12 years due to my rescuing neglected, abused, and unwanted dogs. We foster them until adopted, and it keeps us at home here in Ohio. We would consider the cruise a much needed mini vacation that we could all take, and still be close to home for all our foster dogs. Thank you :)

  18. Mary says

    I would love to surprise my husband with a cruise on the Ohio! He is retired now but I am working. We do not get much of a chance to do something together these days, because of my work schedule. I would surely take a day off to go on this cruise! He would be so excited to spend the evening together, just relaxing on the river…Thank you

  19. Lisa Von Bargen says

    In the hurried pace that we all live in, we rarely have time to slow down and just enjoy one another. A BB Riverboat cruise allows our family to do exactly that. We can check out of our busy lives, enjoy some great food, the beautiful Ohio River, and relax for a change. Just thinking about it made my heart rate slow down a little….;)

  20. Angie says

    I have cruised on the Delta Queen with my late husband and A B&B cruise takes me back !

  21. Dianne Riemenschneider says

    Please pick me! I never win anything and right now I would appreciate a cruise to “take me away” from all my troubles. OMG…I would love this! It would make me motivated to go back to school to teach special ed students even though I wanted to be retired due to my husband is disabled. I love to smile, laugh and enjoy the outdoors especially on the water. One beautiful fun-filled day would make me the happiest person and I am sure I could make you smile, too!!!!!:)

    I want to win this so I can take my mom, grandma, and grandpa on this cruise.

Don’t get me wrong, the price is Excellent for what ALL you get, but we have to put Our Priorities in Order. My husband & I haven’t been out together or had 30 minutes of Alone time in over 4 years! This would be Our Chance to have that MUCH NEEDED TIME TOGETHER before something bad happens , because we’re at our Breaking Point ! Thanks

  46. Christina Becker says

    I would love to win this, my Father passed away when I was 15. I am now 34 and a BB Riverboat cruise is something our family did every summer.No matter how broke or the hard times we were going through my parents always found a way to take my brother and I on a cruise each summer and get us a captains hat. My son is almost 15 and hasn’t been and I would love to take him and my new husband so I could share this with my family whom I love and could enjoy it they way it was enjoyed when I was a child with love and laughter. Those were some of my greatest memories with my Father. He grew up on the Ohio river in Bellevue,Ky and it holds a special place in my heart I grew up there until I was 11. So this would be very special if I could win and show my son and husband a little piece of my childhood memories :)

  69. Mary G says

    Who wouldn’t love this??? A summer’s evening cruise on this awesome BB Riverboat, an icy cold Moerlein to sip on, yummy barbecued meats and incomparable views of the river’s edge are causing me to grovel and beg to be chosen your winner! I’m celebrating a milestone birthday in August & have always wanted to go on a river cruise. It would be fantabulous to check this off my bucket list and combine it with a weekend getaway to Cinci! PICK ME, PICK ME!!!!

  70. Beth says

    I’d love to win this because my wonderful husband is from New Jersey and has never been on a riverboat, while I grew up going on them in Southern Indiana. And also because we’re HUGE fans of BBQ and Christian Moerlein beer! Thanks! :-)

  77. Jessica says

    My family could really, really use a night of pure fun! A BB dinner cruise sounds like a one-night vacation–what could be better? We’re in the midst of trying to sell our house (no easy feat with toys everywhere), our dishwasher recently died a dramatic death, my husband’s smart phone had an unfortunate incident at the swimming pool–we’ve been in a run of rough luck lately, and could use a turn of good fortune! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  83. kimberly says

    We have some guests coming to town and this would be a great way to show them the town!

  84. Lee says

    It’s been a long 10 years to say the least. My husband and I had business close after 11 long years, following that episode, we had a grandbaby born prematurely, to our teenage daughter, with a heart defect.

    We literally put everything, including our jobs, on hold to live in Cincinnati for 8 months with our daughter and grandson. (He did come through surgery and is doing well now.)

    We also care for our aging parents and a grandparent (one has Parkinson’s Disease) a few times a week.

    Our lives are filled with give, give, give … which is what we enjoy and want to do, but when it comes to spending time together (and alone), our time and money is very limited. We would CERTAINLY make time for this cruise!

  85. Pat Z says

    What a great way to spend a Friday night!! Great beer, great food with great friends on a great cruise!

  86. Pat Z says

    What an awesome way to spend a Friday night!! Great beer, great food with great friends on great cruise!

  87. Michelle Lowe says

    My husband and I have been Cincinnati Reds Fans for all of the 28 years we have been married. We have been to lots of games over the years and whenever we see the Riverboat cruise by I want to be there. We plan to visit again in August for my birthday and would love to make a weekend of it to enjoy the Beer & BBQ cruise.

  88. Linda says

    I would love to win this cruise my husband and I have never had a trip for just the two of us in the last 30 years. We have a mental and physically challenged child and we have not been away for anything this nice since she was 6 months old. I think that it would be great for the two of us to get to enjoy the sights and the water view of Cincy

  89. James W Moore says

    I love the Cincinnati river, riverfront, heritage, history, beer, Zoo, chili. We took a river cruise a while back and loved the lazy relaxing cruise down the river. I always wanted to do the Delta Queen but missed that chance. I plan on doing the Dinner train. We recently visted the Khrone Conservatory, Mt Adams, OTR and the Moerlien lager house. Lots of things to see and do and we are not done yet.

  90. sharon wagner says

    My hubby works as a farmer 18 hours a day- This would give me a good reason for him to take a night off. WE need a date night!

  91. Eric says

    My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary on a Dinner Cruise a few years back. Had a Wonderful evening. Hope to be able to experience the dinner cruise again. Thanks BB Riverboats for a great Dinner Cruise.

  92. Michelle says

    I would love to win these tickets. What a great way to surprise my husband and friends with the promises of BBQ, beer, and BB riverboats. We have a 2 year old and one on the way and we don’t get to have as much adult time as we would like. A relaxing evening having fun with friends sounds so wonderful and much needed. We haven’t had friend time without the little one in quite a while. Might be nice to carry on a conversation without Raffi playing in the background.
    (I also completed the requirements for the additional entries). Thanks for the giveaway! I love ffc!

  93. says

    I follow BB Riverboats on facebook, I have tried to get tickets just to go on a dinner cruise for the last 3 yrs and when I get ready to purchase there is always something that comes up that knocks us out from going. I’m going to make it on there one day I hope. Would really like to win, but if not that is ok to I will go one day!

  94. Taylor Lacey says

    I would love to win these tickets to spend a night out enjoying our incredible city with family and friends!

  95. Ken B says

    What a way to end the summer. Our grand kids have been visiting us from Missouri since the first of June and this would be an awesome way to end their summer vacation and ours. I liked you on Facebook along with BB Riverboats & also signed up for the newsletter…

  96. Mark says

    My wife deserves a nice night out to have fun while the four kids are at home with a sitter. She works very hard and is a great mom and wife.

  97. says


  98. Lee Ann Russell says

    I would love to be able to take this cruise with my husband, we never have been able to take one before and this would be just incredible!

  99. Ali says

    I would love to take my husband on this cruise. Our 10th anniversary is this week and a BBQ and beer riverboat cruise would be a fun way to celebrate. We have lived here our whole lives but have never been on a riverboat!

  100. jamie smith says

    I want to win so I can take my neighbors out on fun night! Money is tight for us all and this would be great!

  111. Melissa says

    I would love to win this cruise to take a break from the hustle and bustle and just relax. Living in Cincinnati and loving the water are two things I do, but I rarely get the opportunity to enjoy the river itself.

  112. Michele Tillapaugh says

    I would like to win a BB Riverboat Dinner Cruise because I’ve done it before and it was AWESOME…nothing like the view on both sides of the river while you leisurely have dinner, then stroll around deck to take photos afterward…brings you that relaxed feeling you just don’t get when you are off the boat and back in the real world again!

    Question 1: Why do you want to win this BB Riverboats Beer & BBQ Dinner Cruise? :
    Would be a great way to celebrate with friends or family on our great OHIO river and see all the wonderful views that has to offer and of course enjoy all the great food and take in all the sounds on the cruise (Laughter, live music, you name it)

  121. Melissa Rasner says

    I would love to win cruise tickets because I have only been one time during a school field-trip and loved it. I took a lot of pictures but they were destroyed in a flooded basement and I would love to come enjoy and make new memories. I would buy them but being on a very fixed income, that is not a option. I would bring my kids, who are all grown now and have never been. We are all born and raised near Cincinnati. It would be a wonderful family experience as well as great experience for them.

  122. Theresa Moeggenberg says

    I want to win this cruise because it would be something fun and different to do and not to mention, it would be fun to take my sister out for some beers since she just had her first child!

  123. Amanda Moore says

    I would like to win this dinner cruise so my husband and I can actually have a date night. We have a two year old and one on the way so money is tight. He works two jobs as a police officer in a small town and security officer downtown and I am a teacher. We work opposite shifts and hardly ever get to see each other. This would be a greatly appreciated fun thing for us to do.

  124. Katrina Bray says

    I’d love to win this. My husband and I will celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary on August 15th and this would be PERFECT. We are blessed with a two year old that takes most of the money we make :) And with four tickets we would take my Niece and her Fiancee as a pre wedding party!

  125. Sara Oehler says

    Because it would be a fun experience for by b-day coming up in a couple weeks!!!

  126. Angie says

    I need a date night! With 3 children (1 special needs) and working opposite shifts, I never spend quality time with my husband.

  127. Alethea Osborne says

    I would love to win this prize because I have been working two jobs for the last 2 months. I have 3 children 3, 5 and 10 that miss their mommy and we hardly ever get to do anything fun. Whether it be finances or just lack of time, they would love to do something fun and different.
    Their dad stays home with them so this would be a much needed outing for the whole family.

  128. Arden Steffen says

    Why do you want to win this BB Riverboats Beer & BBQ Dinner Cruise?

    When I was a eight my Mom took me on a BB riverboat cruise for my birthday with a couple of my friends. We all absolutely loved it and it is one of my favorites memories as a child. Unfortunately, my Mom died just a few short years later, very suddenly and now every time I see a BB riverboat I remember that day well and I am sure she is happy in heaven, that I have such a wonderful memory with her! Now I have twin little girls, one of them named for her, and I would love to take them on a cruise and tell them about my day with the grandmother they never met and make a memory of your very own:)

    Thanks for this opportunity!

  129. Khrys Crawford says

    I love BB Riverboats,and Moerlein!! I didn’t realize they collaborated on a cruise, it would be an awesome date night for the hubby and I! :)

  134. Juanita Gober says

    I would love to win since my husband and I haven’t had a vacation since our honeymoon in 2009. 2 kids and 4 years later, our date nights and friend times are very few and just the typical dinner out. This would be something sweet for us to do with some good friends!

  135. says

    My husband and I took a ride on the BB, when we were newly dating, 15 years ago. I would love to celebrate our 15th year together, 13th married, by cruising, dining, and drinking on a fun night with friends. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  136. Jamie Back says

    I would love to take my family on a BB Riverboats Beer & BBQ Dinner Cruise. So much to see on the Mighty Ohio River and what better way to see it than with great food and compay?

  137. tina says

    i’d like to win to take my older children out and have fun with them.

    don’t get a lot of one on one time with them

  138. Jeorganna says

    We went on the riverboat in Feb. 2013 we had so much fun, the only down side was it was so so very cold we didn’t get to go out on deck or up top to see the city! We would love to do it again sometime, but just a lot warmer.

  139. Leslie Arents says

    My husband and I did the Beer and BBQ cruise last year for our anniversary, and it was the firs time we had been on that particular cruise. It was a lot of fun, the food was delicious, and it was neat to hear the story of the Moerlein house from the master brewer who was on the boat as we cruised. Would love to win so we can go back this year!

  140. Elspeth M says

    I would love to win these tickets so I could take my honey and some friends out for a night. Also, I have yet to do a boating on the Ohio river since moving here. This sounds awesome!

  141. Lauren jones says
