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!

I had an extravagant experience Fourth of July weekend on the Sunset dinner cruise M.S. Dixie II . The champagne upon arrival was a phenomenal touch and the picture options upon boarding was such a nice touch to begin the evening. My significant other and I chose the Rib eye for dinner and the Worcestershire butter topped the steak quite nicely ... Up stair on the upper deck there is a full bar with music for dancing and it topped off the evening quite nicely watching the sunset over the mountains in the distance. I highly recommend this cruise. It was a perfect dining experience and I would love to book another cruise upon my many Tahoe get aways in the future. Thank you to all the staff on board .

It was a very good tour of around the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz. The wait to go on was very organized and not a long wait at all. Very accommodating. I would recommend this for anyone who could not get tickets to go onto Alcatraz Island. It is a good alternative.
