Passenger and crew members made it to shore safely this morning after a Saturday night dinner cruise that turned into an overnight adventure.
The Showboat Branson Belle left the dock at Branson, Missouri at 4 p.m. Saturday for an evening dinner cruise and comedy show. Due to problems with strong winds and the boat's thruster, the two and a half hour long cruise kept passengers on board over night, CNN said.
The nearly 640 people aboard the ship weren't harmed and had heat, electrical power, food and beverages on board, the New York Daily News said.
Passengers made it to shore safely around 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
