This was a very enjoyable 2 hour cruise. Unlike Gilligan's Island cruise. It gives you great perspective on how big Lake Tahoe really is. Every few minutes, there is on-board narration about the formation of the lake and bay along with other historical facts. Not too much, just enough to keep it interesting. There are bars on each level and... More

We did the afternoon cruise on the M.S. Dixie II. We had a great place to sit and it was beautiful. We really enjoyed the historical information about the lake and being able to see Emerald Cove from the water. It was just great.

The view is almost all pine trees. I guess I had expected some mansions on the lake or other scenic spots. It was pleasant but not really memorable in terms of great photos.

Sorry to hear about the fire aboard the Tahoe Queen. I've taken this trip 3 times. The first in the late 90's. It pretty cool, sound system worked, along with underwater video of the lake. Food was like enhanced airplane food, but the wine came with dinner, a 1/2 carafe, of both red and white. 2nd time was really great,... More

We brought some family from Michigan to experience seeing Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. They were mesmerized with what we call mountains. Where they live in Michigan is flat and what we call hills they call mountains. Weather was great and the view spectacular from the lake. Information given about Lake Tahoe while on the boat was great. Highly... More

We booked for the 16th of August and got a call that the dinner cruise was canceled due to the Tahoe Queen fire. It was fine we were rebooked for the next night. We were the second seating for dinner. At the time, we were bummed. But we went down for dinner a little before 8, after sunset. It was... More

On our first trip to Tahoe in August 2016, we wanted to cruise the lake so decided on the MS Dixie dinner cruise for our family of four. The lake was gorgeous & Emerald Bay is stunning. We had second seating for dinner, so enjoyed drinks , the view, and a few new friends. Drinks were adequate, unremarkable, but thankfully... More

Took the lunch cruise on 08/18, with a convention group. Nice cruise to Emerald Bay and back to Zephyr Cove. Lunch was buffet style with with potatoe and green salad, and choices of ham, turkey and roast beef for a hero type sandwich. The feeding portion seemed a little disorganized. Have had better experiences in Portland, Or. and Charleston, SC.... More
