Our shuttle bus completely missed us by being much too early. We were to be picked up a 4:10 and arrived at our stop at 3:57. It was pulling away. The company DID PAY for our taxi to the terminal to meet the bus. We were supposed to be able to take sunset pictures of the mountains upon arrival but it was already dusk. We had to stand in line for a photo op that didnt take because of the darkness. Upon boarding the boat, we had great waitresses and servers but the food selection served was lukewarm at best, and not appealing. The boat ride was very smooth, with a nice breeze on deck but we were only able to see the lights from a distance of the Hoover Dam. The ride was much longer there and back than expected on the bus although we had a great driver, Mike. I would probably not spend the money on the night cruise but would opt for the lunch cruise instead.

We took the Lake Mead afternoon sightseeing cruise. The service was very good. The boat was in excellent condition and well maintained. The bar and food grill served a good variety. Many folks were eating and drinking with good comments. The inside cabins on the first and second levels were full of tables with white linens, topped with glass and padded comfortable chairs. The areas were not crowded. The views from the inside were pleasant and a nice change from outside viewing. The top deck was open with plastic lawns chairs and very comfortable. There was a recorded informative narrative running the during the cruise. Seeing the dam from the boat was a different and interesting perspective, as we have visited the dam from above many times before. Due to the starkness around Lake Mead, we were not sure if we should go on this tour, but the lake had very clear beautiful blue water and the starkness was scenic in it's own way. The tour exceeded our expectations. Glad to recommend going on this tour.

We took the dinner cruise on Lake Mead 17 Sept 2013. The boat was nice. The dinner was great and had choice of meals. Took lots of pictures from the upper deck. The cruise takes you to the back side of Hoover Dam.

I am so glad we decided to go on this dinner cruise. It was the highlight of our trip. The bus driver that drove us out to the area to board the boat was full of information about Vegas and had a great personality. The boat was beautiful and the service and food was very good. The scenery was beautiful, far different then what we have here on Vancouver Island. Next time I am in Vegas we will be doing the dinner cruise again.

My fiance & I went on the Dinner Cruise on Sunday, August 25th. What an amazing experience! The staff was very friendly, the food was really good & the views were some of the most magnificent we've ever seen.

We actually rented a car & drove to the marina, which turned out to be an excellent idea because we were able to go see the Hoover Dam which is only about 5-10 mins away. If you do that too, make sure you stop at Lakeview Point also. Another magnificent view.

Our favorite part of the cruise was when we arrived right at the back of the Hoover Dam. We took some amazing pictures.

I would HIGHLY suggest this dinner cruise to anyone. We were celebrating our engagement, but there were plenty of people celebrating birthdays as well as a couple who renewed their vows (the Capt. of the ship actually officiated it).

One last thing, you can't beat the price...less than $62. And we paid an extra $20 for an 8x10 photo & 4x6 photo magnet. Pretty good deal.
