What You Can Expect

Lake Mead Dinner Cruise

Lake Mead Dinner Cruise

Your dinner cruise on Lake Mead takes you aboard the Desert Princess, a spaciously equipped paddle-wheeler. Start your evening tour with hotel pickup in Las Vegas and make a photo stop at the iconic ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign during the approximate 30-minute drive to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

On arrival, you’re welcomed aboard the steamboat by a 10-member crew. Pose for a classic photo op and enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Then take a seat inside one of two climate-controlled enclosed decks, head to the top deck or stroll the open promenade to the Captain's Bridge.

During your cruise, cast your eyes over the unique landscape surrounding Lake Mead and marvel at the mighty Hoover Dam towering above. Consider this awesome engineering feat as your vessel passes the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, part of the Hoover Dam Bypass Project.

When it’s time for dinner, enjoy a 3-course meal with your choice of prime rib, seafood, chicken, vegetarian and pasta dishes. You can purchase additional drinks from the extensive cocktail menu and wine list (additional cost) as you savor the Lake Mead sunset. Conclude with the return drive to Las Vegas hotels.

Please note: The listed price does not include a $10 per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. The fuel surcharge is required by our local supplier and is not within our control.

Following our Grand Canyon All American Helicopter Tour in the morning we thought we would do the Lake Mead Dinner Cruise in the evening .... We're so glad we did ! Seeing the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead and The Hover Dam from different angles was just amazing. It was a lovely relaxing evening enjoying a fabulous 3 course dinner, and amazing views as the sun set.
Excellent value for money and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff on board .
Thanks Viators for a very special day !

This was a lovely trip to do from Las Vegas, my daughter and I had a great time. The meal which was included was very good and the boat wasn't overcrowded at all. I would certainly recommend going on this.
