Recently my Husband and I booked the Dinner& Dancing Cruise. I've read some of the reviews on this evening cruise and respectfully disagree with some regarding the meal. The meal was served promptly at 6:15 pm and we thought the meal was definitely worth the price. The fish was excellent, not to mention the buffet was all you could eat.... More

We cruised on the Mount Washington last year. We had the most wonderful meal that just made the rest of the night worth every penny. This year, TERRIBLE food. Fish that was over cooked and did not taste like haddock to me - all the beef was cooked to well done (yes I went to several food stations) - vegtibles... More

Enjoyed the ride from Weirs Beach to Wolfsboro, NH. The lake is beautiful and is dotted with many inhabited islands. The ship's crew was very friendly. The amount of time alloted for visiting Wolfsboro was, in my opinion, too short.

We enjoyed the champagne brunch on board the MS Mt. Washington leaving from Weir's Beach on a Sunday morning, The price is steep, costing just over $100 for two seniors and one child. The buffet on board is another $16 per person, and a gentleman was playing live music in the dining room. For adults it's a great way to... More

Good way to understand the size of the lake and see some of the beach houses on the shore. Took the 10:00 2 hour tour to wolfeboro? Anyway enjoyed the trip and the voiceover giving some history and details. As for those complaining about the quality of the food, you are on a +50 year old vessel, if they have... More

I did the one hour tour of the lake on the Doris C. It was nice and I got some great pictures. The Captain points out things of interest and gives you some facts about the lake. The views were really great and I loved just being on the water. I would suggest a hat and a camera. It is... More

The Cruise was really beautiful. We saw a lot of Lake Winnie and really learned a lot of cool facts about the lake. Wear sunblock if its sunny....gets very hot on the top decks! There is minimal food available, which we figured so we did not anticipate on eating, but we did enjoy a few beers. But mainly we were... More

We were looking forward to a night of dinner and dancing. Looking at the web they showed wonderful meals and live bands. We paid our 100.00 and were ready to eat and dance. Dinner was mediocre....chicken or fish in steamer trays, left the ship hungry. Then the entertainment, they had one guy with taped music on one deck and a... More

The sights were lovely, the entertainment was great and the weather was amazing for the cruise, but the food was not great at all. Very disappointed with the selection and overall quality of the food for the price.
