We really enjoyed our "motor ship" ride around the lake.The loading and unloading of passengers was well organized and user friendly. The captain of the ship made several announcements throughout the trip, informing us of landmarks etc we were passing. They had free coffee and food and drinks for purchase.

There is so much to do in this area, from hiking to sailing etc. the scenery is beautiful,. We went on Lake Squam (which is where Katherine Hepburn filmed "On Golden Pond".) It was so beautiful and very tranquil. We claimed up Rattlesnake Mountain (a steep climb about 30mins) and viewed the lake from above, great views. We also visited... More

Very enjoyable and good narrative from the captain. Food and beverages available too! What's not to like? We did wonder how crowded it would feel if it had a capacity passenger list.

While visiting New Hampshire, we decided to try out the cruise to see the area lake. It was a quiet, beautiful fall day, and we had a wonderful time. The ship arrived on time, and the crew was friendly and helpful. We went during the week, so there plenty of seats. I also had the opportunity to walk around the... More

Took the later trip on lake winnipesaukee . An overcast day with hints of sun. Off season, so not crowded. Worth the trip. Sat in the top deck in the bow. Beautiful 2 1/2 hour trip. Take a jacket because it gets cold and windy. Crew was courteous and the boat can accommodate people with disabilities . Bathrooms are TINY.... More

M/S 10. of Mt Washington is a good ship, fast and smooth. The trip for that is a 10 out 10. Geat scenery. Now you may book a dinner or brunch cruise. Unfortunately, this experience will turn it into a 2-3 out of 10. The food sucks. For the money you pay, it could be a lot better. Good luck... More

Awful experience I booked the Sunday Champagne cruise online, so looking forward to end my nice weekend getaway with this cruise brunch. On Saturday I went to pick up my ticket that I booked online, they could not find my reservation even when I showed them my invoice, photo ID, everything, so the person offered to sell me another set...

We did one of the Saturday dinner cruises. The ship is quaint, the food was average, the prices for drinks average. The band (Club Soda?) was so much fun. We boarded late and ended up sitting next to the dance floor. Lucky for us!! The band was amazing---played songs from Elvis Presley to Def Leppard to current hits. This was... More

This day cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee was just perfect. The boarding area at Weirs Beach is lovely, as a scenic train leaves from the same depot. In an hour and a half or so we arrived at the town of Wolfeboro where we stayed another few hours till it was time to head back on the boat. There is a... More
