Highland Manor Residents Set Sail
Posting Date: 06/13/2012

On Thursday, May 31, a group of residents and staff made the two hour drive to Boulder City, where they boarded the Desert Princess. The weather was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the [paddle wheel] boat was immaculate.

The two-hour cruise began with drinks, a choice of lemonade or iced tea, soon followed by a small dinner salad and a champagne flute of delicious Cream of Broccoli soup. Then the choices had to be made—slow cooked prime rib, roasted chicken, broiled salmon, or four cheese ravioli—all served with toasted garlic bread, garlic mashed potatoes, and vegetables. Finally came dessert, a personal-sized carrot cake or chocolate lava cake with a touch of whipped cream.


Desert Princess calmly journeyed around a large section of Lake Mead, allowing all passengers to see the new bridge of the Hoover Dam and better yet, the sunset over the water and mountains.

The Lake Mead Dinner Cruise staff was incredible from the welcoming committee, to the deck hands, to the servers. There was a smile on everyone’s face and they were nothing but helpful to the residents. Because of the money and effort that was put into this trip and the utter satisfaction of everyone aboard, Highland Manor is proud to make this an annual event. The Staff at Highland Manor would like to thank everyone who made a donation, bought raffle tickets, or participated in the bake sale to benefit the Lake Mead Dinner Cruise. Gas to get there…$$, Tickets….$$, Memories…Priceless.
