The ship is fine, just don't go there to eat, it is terrible. We had a nice kale salad, nothing else in it. greasy meatloaf and some kind of fish. The deserts were left over from the day before Sunday brunch, I know I was on that too. We went to see about the season pass going at night. forget... More

Visited with a group of friends for the dinner cruise with the following observations: food is marginal at best. Limited selection, potatoes over done, roast beef over done, vegetables over done....but the salad was fresh. Drink prices are fair with a reasonable beer selection, but lower shelf alcohol. Staff was more focused on their duties and not the guests.....cut people... More

Ok so I have been on the day cruise before which was a great way to see the lake and when we went years ago they pointed out sights and gave history. Nice. My wife surprised me with a dinner cruise last night for my birthday and mentioned that in addition to the cruise the buffet looked good and showed... More

My husband and I decided to spend the weekend in NH for our anniversary, and we chose to come here on Saturday Night. Boarding started around 6:15pm after getting bags checked (don't try to smuggle booze, they'll take it.) Food is served right away. Food is ok, average at best. My favorite was the salad and the roasted potatoes. The... More

We took this lake tour during our first day at the lake - great way to get acclimated. It just so happened that miss New Hampshire and her full court were on board that afternoon too. On deck 1 was a dj playing music - with a dance floor !

Amazing colors and views of the fall foliage from the M/S Mt Washington. I don't miss it, every year we go back for the foliage cruise.

We went on the Mount Washington Dinner Cruise for our anniversary. The buffet dinner was very good. The cruise was fun, with exceptional views of Lake Winnipesaukee. The staff was orderly and precise, but not overly friendly. The dancing and band were great, although we spent most of our time on the upper deck enjoying the views and sunset. I... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a gorgeous summer night on this cruise. The weather was perfect to be out there on the lake, and we enjoyed the 3 hour trip. The buffet they offered was good...plenty of different options. We ate soon after the boat left the dock. We danced for an hour or so to tunes from the 80... More
