Reviewed 28 June 2018

Recently took the evening dinner MS Dixie cruise. The trip was very nice. Beautiful scenery, live music, very nice staff, bartender was cool as heck, got a little gift shop, and then to top it off, you get a very nice three course meal, salad, bread, choice of steak and salmon. Dessert was a cheesecake. They had chicken strips and fries for kids. I would strongly recommend you get "second seat". Dinner is two different seatings. Reason is you can enjoy the beautiful sun, clear day view, when it is not so cold. Second seat also has fewer people. Then you get to see the sunset and it is not cold up on deck. It is a great experience for a family or even individually. Lastly, get your tickets at a casino. You will get the AAA price. Instead of 95, we paid 85 per person.

So the first time I booked this trip for four of us, it got canceled due to weather which it was understandable, so they refunded the money and I booked it again not for the following weekend but the next one .. so as we had calculated to be there at 5:30 (that’s what they advise you since the boat departs at 6pm) something terrible happened, we put the address on gps that was stated at the voucher and instead of taking us to where the departing spot was it took us 40 minutes away from the real place(it took us to some houses pretty much on the other side of the lake ) , mind you it was 530 so we called and ask (to the phone number provided for costumer service)if they could please wait for us and explain the whole situation, the guy said he was not able to contact anybody at the boat and since we had not booked directly with their company there was nothing he could do about it . We missed the cruise and when I contacted Groupon and explained about what had happened and asked if there was anyway I could get re-schedule they said NO... very upsetting to have paid 376$ for nothing ! I contacted via email the main company for the Tahoe DixieII to give feedback of what had happened and they never responded back.. I guess they can care less of when situations like this happen.

We did the afternoon cruise to Emerald Bay we found the cruise boring and overpriced.
The cruise took the same route to Emerald Bay and back didn't really hug the shoreline so you didn't see much. You can see Emerald Bay just as good from the lookout on the road above the Bay.

The shuttle bus picked us up from the Hard Rock Hotel which was super convenient
and saved us from the $10 parking fee at the marina. We had a great driver that was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas.We did the sunset dinner cruise to Emerald Bay and had a great time. I had the ribeye dinner and my husband had the honey fried chicken, both dishes were delicious. The tour took a total of about 2 to 2 1/2 hours and as promised, we observed a beautiful sunset that just kept getting better and better with each minute. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone and wish I would’ve done it much sooner!
