Frequently Asked Questions
Are the boats climate controlled?
Yes! Both the Lake Queen Paddlewheel and the Landing Princess Yacht have climate controlled levels. The upper and lower levels of the Landing Princess are climate controlled while the Lake Queen is enclosed and climate controlled on the lower level. The upper level of the Lake Queen has a roof but is open on all sides for guests to enjoy the outdoors air during nice weather. Both boats offer outside deck seating areas.
How does guest seating work on the boats?
On the Lake Queen, you're welcome to sit, move, or stand wherever you like as there is no assigned seating arrangement. Because you have the option of climate controlled seating or open air seating, you'll want to arrive early as all seating is first come, first served.

Our 2nd Trip
"This was our 2nd trip and we liked just as much as the first time. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The captain was very good and informative. A very relaxing trip. I would recommend the trip to everyone! Does not matter what the age is, they will enjoy it. When we come back to Branson, we plan on the trip again and we hope to attend the dinner cruise on the other boat. Thank you!"

"It was a great time and my favorite attraction in Branson, as I express sincere thanks to everyone who made my first trip to Branson Mo a memorable experience. I would by far choose the dinner cruise again when I return to Missouri. If I could have the same staff, I would be even more thrilled! Thank you again for a wonderful time last weekend!"

Enjoyable, relaxing and informative; fun time!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on Lake Taneycomo. The cool breeze from the water was refreshing on an 80 degree sunny day. We could see both sides of the riverbank from our seats on the covered upper deck and were delighted to have the opportunity to see a bald eagle perched on a limb hanging above the water. Magnificent! I was happily surprised at the enthusiastic waves and greetings from fishermen, boaters, and canoeists we cruised past along the route. They seemed genuinely happy to see us. The narration was very informative and I was amazed to learn of the famous residents living on the lake. Everyone on board was having fun, from small children to my 83 year old mother. Try it - you will like it!"
