We passed the Belle on a previous trip to Louisville. I heard the whistles blowing a great tune. Then the paddle steamer looked wonderful, it looked like it would be a great trip.I was very excited to share this with my wife on our special trip to Louisville, (this was one of the main reasons we chose Louisville for our trip), We arrived early got our tickets which we was told were not refundable. then found out we were on the Grunt Boat the Jefferson. NO PADDLE, NO WHISTLE,( JUST A FOG HORN), DIRTY BATHROOMS, (WHICH ARE BY THE KITCHEN AREA), NO ATMOSPHERE, AND A WONDERFUL FRESH SMELL OF DIESEL.
The OLD DJ was talking about stuff you were seeing off the boat. you could not make out anything he was saying. When we arrived back at the dock, the office was conveniently closed. I guess to improve the whole experience and to receive the many comments i am sure they would have received.
I am sure the Belle would be great but WHO KNOWS!!!
YOU GET 2 STARS NOT 1, ONLY BECAUSE WE MADE IT BACK TO THE DOCK WITHOUT SINKING!!
