Great tour! We were in the first seating of dinner and were amazed by the food being turned out by the kitchen - and the wait staff was better than in many restaurants we have been in. Afterwards we strolled around the upper deck as we entered and toured Emerald Bay. What a marvelous spot -- no wonder it is so photographed. On the way back we sat in the lounge area and listened to a very good band, who really got the place jumping. If you want a fun evening to remember of your time in South Lake Tahoe,skip the casinos and join the group on M.S. Dixie II.

We had a great time!! The M.S. Dixie had some mechanical issues, so we had our cruise aboard the Tahoe Queen. The evening was windy and a bit rainy/cool, but it didn't bother us. The meal was fabulous and so was the music. We used this dinner cruise as the reception after our wedding and the band played a song just for us as our first dance. We loved it and would definitely recommend it to others. Our guests had a great time too!
