Great experience, good food, good service, great staff. We love it!Reviewed by: Carol G, USA, August 2008
This was enjoyable from start to finish. The group that entertained us was excellent. We were also surprised at the quality of the meal served on board. We thought it was a great value for money, especially as the Dixie staff picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel.Reviewed by: Tony M, United Kingdom, June 2008
This was by far the best trip I have had.Reviewed by: Keith O, USA, June 2008
We were concerned that the dinner cruise would be cancelled because of the 30mph winds. However, the ship was very stable, the food was very good, and the band played all the right tunes. A great time, worth the money.Reviewed by: RODGER P, USA, April 2008
All in all, a great trip on the lake. I am from the Bay Area and have been up to Tahoe for more times than I can remember, but this was my first ride on a boat. There was a glitch when I made my reservations online. The ticket voucher said the boat was departing at 6:30. I went to the departure pt. early morning to ck. out the parking situation and to get more information. I was informed by the parking attendant that the correct departure time was 6:00. Had I relied solely on my confirmation and voucher forms, we would have watched the boat departing from the shore. Other than that, the boat ride is one of the things you have to do in your lifetime.
The time of the year was perfect (august). The greeting,food, service, view, and music were great!! I'm glad we had dinner first, then went atop for the magnificient view. Emerald Bay was spectacular and the sunset was unforgetable. Will definitely recommend. SUGGESTION: raise the speakers that are pointed down so the guide tour's voice can be heard better by guests AND tone down volumn of band on upstairs deck... was too loud for conversation :))) THANKS for a wonderful memory!Reviewed by: Karen M, August 2012
It was absolutely wonderful. The food was great and the tour was exactly what my wife and I wanted. What a lovely way to spend an evening celebrating our anniversary.Reviewed by: Gary N, USA, July 2012
We had a great time. Music, tour were fantastic. Dinner was very good, but not great.Reviewed by: Marilyn R, September 2011
Great experience with friendly staff. Might be a little pricey for the amount we paid.Reviewed by: Michael S, USA, August 2010
The cruise itself was very nice. I loved seeing the beautiful Emerald Bay. The dinner service was lacking. It took 45 minutes to finally get someone to open my bottle of wine and bring me glasses. The other tables were already being served their appetizer and salad before I even had a drink. Another man at my table ordered a beer which took nearly an hour to get. The dinner service was the only thing that I did not enjoy. The rest of the experience was awesome.Reviewed by: Carlie N, USA, August 2010
