LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Belle of Louisville steamboat stands out on the city's Ohio River waterfront with its old-style southern charm.

One thing that hasn't been so charming is its lack of air conditioning during the often stifling Kentucky summers.

The Courier-Journal reports all that is about to change with a $350,000 air conditioning system that city leaders say might be the key to keeping the city-owned steamboat financially afloat.

The Belle will make its maiden voyage with air conditioning during a public Easter cruise April 4. The regular public cruise schedule will resume around Memorial Day.
