A Tale of Two Ships

The Ark & Belle of Louisville - an Autumn Adventure

4 Days  |  Oct 15-18, 2018 or Oct 22-25, 2019

Starting At $479.00
While it is difficult to describe this combo, we compare it to a ‘Tale of Two Cities. ’ "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times (or cruises)." It is a full day of fun on The Belle Of Louisville’s Autumn Cruise Special. Followed by a visit to the recreation of Noah’s Ark, a monument to an Old Testament Apocalyptic moment. We take some comfort in the thought that Dickens could not have compared these two ships either.

This marvel of engineering is seven stories tall and is a football field and a half long. It is the largest timber frame structure in the world. Get ready to experience close-up encounters with stunning animals: some life-like recreations from Noah’s day and many living-and-breathing animals from today.

Returning to Clarksville, dinner is included this evening at a local restaurant.
