“Great way to see lake winnipesaukee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

No weather will challenge this boat. The ride is great - you see a lot and hear stories about the lake. Not that expensive - surely cheaper than renting a boat, and you don't have to worry about hitting a rock. The food onboard is so-so - but that is not what you go for.

“Cruise Lake Winnepesaukee in the big ship”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Take a day time scenic cruise or one of the evening dinner dance cruises on the iconic cruise ship the M/S Mount Washington, fondly called The Mount. Great food, music, bar, dancing. Fresh air, and breath taking scenery. Well worth the money. Event the locals take the cruise now and then.

“Nice Ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went just before the tourist season and we did not get on the M/S Mount Washington. Since the crowds are too small they put us off on a small mail boat. We were king of disappointed at this, but we went anyway. It was very windy and cold so we only lasted about 1/2 the trip outside on the top deck. We went downstairs into the cabin and free coffee and cookies were available. The trip was very nice and the scenery was great. The captain did a good job explaining what we looking at and gave us some local history. It was a well spent afternoon, just a little disappointing that we were not able to get on the larger boat in the brochure.
