Sunset cruise across lake was well worth it. Great sights, good finger food and a bar. Ship has plenty of space and restrooms.

This was an excellent choice. Smaller group than the larger paddlewheel made for a better presentation & experience. Very knowledgeable & friendly crew. Highly recommend and I know you won't be disappointed.

Cruise was awesome. Chad and Karly were excellent and so much fun. Champagne was good and flowed freely as did wine and beer. We were on Champagne Sunset Cruise and champagne, beer and wine were included. I would highly recommend this cruise.
