“Fall”ing into Autumn Cruise Season
With the changing seasons and the changing colors, comes the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch’s fall cruise schedule. Now is the perfect time to plan a safe adventure on the water with your friends and family members. And bonus: you don’t have to pack a bag!
The Riverboats are excited to offer ways to take in the beauty of the fall foliage while experiencing the magic of a Mississippi River cruise.
Here’s what the Riverboats have on deck this season:
The lock-and-dam system is one of the most fascinating aspects of river travel.

A chef-prepared lunch buffet, cash bar and live Dixieland music are included! Saturdays: September 26, October 3, 10 & 17; 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Calling all beer lovers! The Riverboats’ popular Oktoberfest Cruise will once again provide a fun (and safe!) celebration of everyone’s favorite German holiday. Nosh on German fare and relax to live music form Big Joe and the Bavarians. (Oh, and did we mention the beer?!) Saturday, October 11; 1:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Superhero & Princess Family Costume Cruise
Halloween is sure to look a little different this year, so give the kids a fun and safe way to dress up in their best costumes and enjoy a festive celebration aboard the Riverboats!
