Only minutes from the glitter of Las Vegas is a very different kind of fun! Just a short drive from the valley of neon lies a whole other world - Lake Mead, and the mighty Hoover Dam. These waters are home to the Desert Princess, an authentic 300-passenger paddlewheeler, built especially to cruise the blue waters of Lake Mead. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy a fun combination of spectacular scenery, good food and "Outrageously Great Times!" Year round, the Desert Princess skims across the lake's glassy blue surface, from early morning into the night. Choose the excursion best suited for you, and bring your camera because each time of day brings its special light and color to the surroundings. Whatever the season, travel in climate-controlled comfort on one of the two enclosed decks, or feel the wind in your hair and the desert sun on your face up top on the open promenade deck. The Desert Princess offers a selection of cruises; departing daily from Lake Mead Cruises Landing.
