This boat was very big and had indoor and outdoor seating. It had a little gift counter and a diner counter. It also had dinner cruises with dances, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

What a brilliant trip - highly recommended. $60 for two for trip across the lake from Weirs Beach to Alton Bay (not Wolfesboro as water level was too low - time of year October). Nothing to get off for but that was fine - the actual ride as lovely. Trip down memory lane with the 60/70s music accompanying the steady... More

A nice relaxing cruise around the lake. A shop with refreshments on board. Large boat and lots of indoor seating. We disembarked at Wolfeboro for lunch which was a cute little place

Picked up this cruise in Weirs Beach. Parking lot adjacent the church - meter parking on street near pier is not long enough for the cruise. Cruise is narrated and was a great way to see the fall colours around the lake.

We visited during the fall and enjoyed the autumn foliage... but this cruise would be awesome anytime of year! The narration and entire experience was relaxing and beautiful! Highly recommend.

Our second time on the MS Mount Washington and although it wasn't quite as warm as the first we loved it. A great scenic trip from Weir's beach to Alton Bay, hot apple cider and the colours of fall. A great way to spend an afternoon!

We picked up the cruise after taking the Hobo & Winnipesaukee railroad and road one way to the boat. This was very relaxing cruise but be careful what stop you get off as there is more then just out and back. We almost lost a few folks who did not know this. They were to make a announcement but we... More

We (two 60-something American couples) decided to take the boat ride from Weirs Beach to Alton Bay & return on the last Sunday of the season. Took the 12:30 run, which was a 1/2 hour late in arriving at Weirs Beach. Did not want to do the Sunday brunch tour, figured we'd just have lunch on board instead, so we... More
