Cruises on the Catawba Queen vary depending on schedule and type of cruise desired.
Captain Boots took us out on Lake Norman for a tour of the lake and the famous and/or rich homes on the waterfront. Captain Boots also enjoys having children visit and they can "drive" the boat with his assistance. We enjoyed the ride and my son learned a little about boats.
The northern part of the Charlotte area boasts the beautiful Lake Norman. It's not a natural lake, but is beautiful, all the same. However, there are few ways to actually enjoy the lake if you don't happen to have a house on the lake. Taking a cruise from Queen's Landing is one way. I believe there are dinner cruises for adults, but I've only been on the daytime Cookie Cruises that run in the summer geared towards little kids. It is a nice way to actually get a look at the lake, if you don't happen to own a boat yourself. An employee of Queen's Landing reads a story for little children during the cruise. And, yes, there are actual cookies! :) The cruise lasts about half an hour or so - perfect for little attention spans. The tickets are not expensive. A nice morning out.
