Afternoon delight

Great half day trip. The colors of blue in the lake are wonderful. Worth having your picture taken when you get on the boat.

The whole family enjoyed the dinner cruise. The band played a great variety of songs. I even danced with my wife. Line up early to get window seats.

The Tahoe Queen no longer leaves from the Ski Run Blvd.marina.Instead they shuttle you out to Zepher Cove marina which is a mile or two out of town.The shuttles seem very disorganized and ours arrived late which resulted in us missing the Tahoe Queen and being put on the smaller Paridise cruiser.Not what we paid for! The cruise itself is... More

the captain was informative on the relaxing cruise around Lake Tahoe CA , if you wish to eat on board I recommend the dinner cruise as it is more expensive but food is included... the lunch prices are separate and high for what you get

Our family of 5 took the 2 hour tour on the Tahoe Queen. We were booked for the M. S. Dixie II but due to a mechanical issue, we all boarded the Queen instead. Completely understandable, delayed the tour only 15 minutes and was still enjoyable. It was a nice, smooth trip across the lake to Emerald Bay with beautiful... More

We took the Tahoe Queen dinner cruise on 7/4/15 thinking it would be the perfect place to see the fireworks and have a romantic evening for our wedding anniversary. Not so much. We paid $225 per person and that was grossly overpriced for what we got. First the shuttle was over 30 minutes late picking us up. When we arrived... More

The 4th July dinner cruise had its highs and lows. Highs: pretty good food, full bar, good live band, shuttle service from hotel, very friendly and efficient staff on the boat and tremendous position on the lake to watch the fireworks. Lows: very disorganized staff off boat (except the shuttle driver...he rocked) and total lack of communication, no knowledge that... More

Informative tour to Emerald Bay. Try to get onto the second floor and get a table by the window. Just be aware of the speakers above the tables. If you get a table under a speaker as we did, it does get a bit loud when the music is on. We were worried about the crowd but took a chance... More

I have to agree with some of the other reviews. Trip advisor is not to tell only rave reviews but what you really feel. I waited in line on the dock in the hot sun to board for a very long time. The ship was full and lines for drinks long. The lake was calm but it seemed forever to... More

If you are 70 and over this over priced ride to emerald bay will sustain you...you do not have to worry about getting there early it is never on time.. be prepared to stand in the hot sun for an hour before you board. Make sure you either eat before you go or bring 100.00 for a bag of chips... More
