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!

Great narration of the sights, lots of spaces open and enclosed as it was a bit brisk. Bar is a nice area and staff very polite and courteous!

The Mimosa cruise was amazing! I loved hearing about the history of Newport and seeing all of the sights and landmarks.

The tour was terrific. Our guide narrated the entire cruise, which was very informative and educational.

Fun cruise. Informative and interesting. Worth the money!
