COVID-19 Info

BB Riverboats will operate at a much-reduced capacity as we start cruising. We will offer reserved seating on our meal cruises at an interior table. This exercise, coupled with the removal of some seating, will allow us to ensure every guest with a meal ticket has a table to sit at that properly allows them to socially distance. For guests that have purchased a sightseeing ticket or guests that choose to transit the outside decks after their meal, sanitized deck chairs will be available in stacks at locations around the outside decks. If you would like to sit outside (which we believe is the best seat in the house!) we ask you to take your own seating and place it in an area you feel comfortable with. We please ask you to keep every other guest in mind when you choose that location and adhere to a 6-foot distance between you and other guests.

We all are going through unprecedented times as we navigate through a world that has changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. BB Riverboats, the Bernstein Family, and all of our crew members want our guests to know that there is nothing more important to us than keeping everyone safe as we try to entertain you and show you a good time. This page is put together as a resource for anyone who is interested in the steps we are taking to make your enjoyable experience a safe one. Please keep in mind that nobody has ever gone through an event like this and there will certainly be a learning period as we start operating. Our policies and procedures may change after we are able to assess how operationally efficient they turn out to be so we ask for your patience and understanding. One thing we will assure you is that we will make every step and do everything in our power to make your visit one to remember!

What are we doing?

BB Riverboats is following all of the policies and procedures that have been given to us by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Northern Kentucky Health Department, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the United States Coast Guard. Additionally, the Passenger Vessel Association (PVA) has distributed additional guidance and directives to ensure all steps are being taken as we look to reopen. BB Riverboats plays an active role in the association and has assisted in making these guidelines and policies for the entire industry.

What changes will be made on your cruises?

Food Shortage

BB Riverboats will make every attempt to deliver your stated menu. Due to the expected nationwide food shortage, some items may be difficult to obtain. If an item is not available to us, our Executive Chef will prepare a substitute item. This will be a day by day process and we may not always be able to disclose our menu until shortly prior to your cruise. If you have any food allergies, please tell us about them when you book to ensure we are able to accommodate you.
