We booked a group tour for the Scenic Dinner Cruise on the M.S. Dixie II out of Zephyr Cove, NV at Lake Tahoe. Our group was fairly local coming from Reno for an outing of co-workers to celebrate a recent award that our business had won. We had contacted Scott in the sales office who set up our group tickets... More

From grandma to youngest child our entire family loved this cruise. It was a great way to experience the lake and stay in from the cold. Band was entertaining, food was yum and the drinks were cold. Highly recommend!

We sailed on the M.S. Dixie II and had a great time. This is a fantastic way for a photographer to get outstanding shots. We were greeted by very friendly crew members and the ship was clean and neat. If you order the french fries be aware that they come in a humongous basket. So one basket is enough for... More

What a treat! This evening we jumped on board the MS Dixie II for the first time of their Winter Wednesday evening Paddles and Pints. Great crew, great brew, great apps, great music with Ike and Martin. And the views cannot be matched anywhere! Well worth the $25 plus beer an food.

Wow Tahoe & a Steamboat Cruise again. Tahoe because it reminds us of when we got married and Steamboats have always been dear to our hearts. The Delta Queen & Mississippi Queen traveling the waters of Mississippi River and Ohio River in different vacations brings you back to those times of the early frontier. Of course we just had have...

This is a great little ride around Emerald bay, enjoyable for all ages. There is a nice little history of tahoe that is told over the speakers as well. If you get a chance book this when up in the Reno/Tahoe area

Went our on the smaller boat. At first we were disappointed, but not for long. We only had 30 people on the boat, so it was very personal. The service was superb.
