My husband and I took this tour at 5:30 pm on our wedding anniversary. As suggested we arrived an hour early. We went to the Newport Lnading office and they said we needed to go to the opposite end of the boulevard to check in. We did so and were told to go around the corner to board the boat at about 5:20 pm. (it was very cold outside). We went there at about 4:45 and were about number 10 in line. At 5:20 a man came by and said you cannot line up here you need to go back around the building and line up behind the sign. When we did this we became about 50 or 60 in line after standing in line for over a half hour we were put behind all these guests that arrived much later than us. Of course there were no seats left for us inside, approx. 16 inside seats. We left late and came back early. The lights on the homes are beautiful but Newport landing has nothing to with the decorations. I recommend if you want wine, drink beer instead. It is in the bottle and you have pretty good idea of what you are getting. The wine is terrible. The narration, or lack there of, was almost none existent. The music was not holiday oriented and did not fit with the theme of the trip. No holiday music at all. There are other cruises that offer this at the Holidays and I highly recommend you check those out before wasting your money on Newport Landing.
