Well, the Showboat is expensive, but I think it was worth it. When you first board the ship you can take pictures look around and just enjoy being outdoors. Then, you are ushered into a large room with beautiful, lined covered tables. There you will watch an enjoyable show and eat a nice meal. All of the time, you are moving, but don't even notice it. The only thing I would have liked was to spend some more time actually outside watching as we sailed, but overall it was a pleasant experience.
