“Nice cruise on a hot day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We took the 2-1/2 hour cruise on a very hot afternoon in July. We have been on this boat many times before, and always bring guests there when they come to visit. The cruise covers most of Lake Winnipesaukee, is informative and very safe. The staff is very courteous and professional. There is food available and differs depending upon what type of cruise you take.....morning, afternoon, dinner. Anyone who has not been on this lake before will enjoy this experience.

“A Pleasant Way To Spend The Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Since I live here in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire, I quite often go out on the mount Washington Cruise Ship. Guests who visit us, are awed at the size of Lake Winnipesaukee, and the smooth ride on this historic ship, is a great way to show them the area.
There is a small restaurant/snack bar on board and I usually plan on having a light lunch when we go.
I have seen the ship decorated for weddings, for fun nights, and the crew is always full of smiles and happy to accommodate you.

“Decent trip across the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Generally a good time. Bar and snack bar on board, but not a ton of narration. As a side note, you can take the early boarding time, get off in Wolfesboro, and poke around there for a few hours til the second sailing of the Mount Washington picks you up.

Great way to spend 2.5 hours. There is a bar and snacks on board. Lots of shade if you need to get out of the sun.

“Family Party Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food was pretty good.The trip was worth it. Kids eat free on Wed. one child per paying adult. The trip offers music and danceing on two floors for adults and kids. They have entertainers that play games with the kids and even a child/parent dance contest. The kids loved it and can not wait to go back next year.
