What people are saying about Newport, Rhode Island

I was with 2 other friends and all of us are in the 70+ age group. We did not do the stairs to go on the upper level of the boat, but the tour guide came to the bow of the boat and he was excellent. The weather was great the trip was great. We did not drink the rum punch but they made us Virgin drinks and they were very, very good. Highly recommend!

The cruise was excellent! Everyone was great. Tina the bartender made the best Bloody Mary’s around! She was an excellent bartender! Customer service was excellent! A very well run cruise would definitely recommend!

We went out on the bay for about an hour or so, the weather was perfect, the drink prices were reasonable, and everyone was having a good time. Couldn't ask for much more than that. Would definitely do it again.

I booked this cruise for my friends bachelorette party and we almost didn’t make our time and they held the boat for us for a few minutes while we got there! This was an excellent boat cruise!

Our sunset cruise was perfect. Our guide/narrator was knowledgeable, and friendly! He made the trip feel like you were traveling with an old friend . Would highly recommend.
