Before the Showboat docks, you will have approximately 20 to 30 minutes to stroll the exterior decks of the Showboat and enjoy scenic views of Table Rock Lake and the Ozark Mountains.

The view of Table Rock Lake and the Showboat is fabulous from onshore. White River Landing, where the Showboat docks, is also home to two shops and landscaped walkways.

Yes. The ship has large windows on all three interior decks of the theater. You can also explore a few smaller lounge areas, the exterior promenades and outer decks of the ship, which also provide great views of the lake.

The dining theater area of the ship has three levels, all of which provide excellent views of the stage. There is one exterior deck on the very top of the ship, where the captain's wheelhouse is located. The lowest level of the ship houses the engine room and kitchen.

All of the ship's crew is trained in first aid procedures and we have an EMT on board all cruises. Should it be necessary to transport a guest off the vessel, we have an excellent working relationship with the water patrol and emergency care providers in our area. (Note: We do not encourage people who are seriously ill, or have an hour-to-hour medical condition to board the vessel. The Showboat can be an hour from dock, and emergency stops in route, while possible, would inconvenience other passengers considerably.)
