Celebrate the very best sights, sounds and flavors of Philadelphia aboard...

Celebrate the very best sights, sounds and flavors of Philadelphia aboard this spectacularly appointed grand riverboat. The Philadelphia Belle’s classic lines, paddlewheel and authentic design details are reminiscent of the elegant riverboats of the late 1800s. The Belle is the largest vessel of her type on the East Coast and gracefully accommodates couples and families for lunch, brunch, dinner or sightseeing & beverage service cruises as well as groups of 20 to 1,000 and offers an authentic Philadelphia experience. To create this quintessentially Philly experience, the Belle brought on board a unique mixture of partners that have made this city famous. Everything, from the dining to the music, from the sightseeing to the artwork will leave you in a Philly state of mind. Our executive chef and culinary team have put together Philadelphia-inspired menus featuring local favorites that are freshly prepared on board. Musical entertainment is presented by world-renowned Philadelphia International Records featuring “The Sound of Philadelphia.” The Belle offers unique water views of historic Philadelphia landmarks from the large interior windows and from the outdoor strolling decks or topside deck for a panoramic vantage point that offers the very best view of the City of Brotherly Love. Even the walls are adorned with Philadelphia inspired artwork. You won't find a better way to experience the Philadelphia. It's a must-do for any trip to Philadelphia.Most cruises are available with a Cruise-Only Option or in a Cruise & Dine Package. Either way, you'll experience the Best of Philadelphia on the Water.

I had fairly high expectations for the Philadelphia Belle boat ride. I went for a luncheon aboard the boat and it did about 2 hours of going up and down the river. The sights were not spectacular and the food was just OK. It may be a great trip for a different kind of group. They provided OK entertainment aboard... More

In June 2011 I took my wife and her parents on a brunch cruise on the Philadelphia Belle. I was really excited about this trip because my wife loves the old-fashioned paddleboat river cruises.
