“Bad Evening for the class reunion”
Review of Newport Majestic Cruises - CLOSED

Newport Majestic Cruises
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had a 6:45 PM Boarding and finally boarded after 7:30PM with no explanation. Heard after that the owners wife and friends were on the ship earlier in the day and did not want to get off. To comp us they offered us a free drink. Well this was a 3 hours cruise, and guess what, we returned normal time at 10:00PM, in fact we were back at the dock a little early. So we had about 2 hours 15 minutes on the water. Talk about an insult.

When we boarded the ship and needed to use the bath rooms it was obvious that they were not cleaned well or at all. In fact the ladies room stunk sewer. What a turn off.

By the time we received our food which was a buffet, it was stone cold. They had chicken, pork, fish, rice, veggies, salad and rolls. The only thing I would say was good were the rolls when they came out of the oven. The staff seemed to have a difficult time in keeping the buffet pans full. Overall the food was fair at best.

The DJ although was entertaining did not play a good variety of music based upon the crowd on the ship.

Bottom line I would not refer this cruise line to anyone nor do I every plan to return. What a terrible night for a class reunion after paying $75 per head.

Hello,

It’s sad for us as new management to read reviews like this and I would like to welcome you back to take a cruise on us. We have changed many things and if it was possible to give back those 3 hours we would do that immediately. Please contact our sales office to schedule a cruise next time you are in the area and we will show you how great the Majestic can be.

Thank you,

My wife and her two friends took the brunch cruise today and it could not have been better. The food was cooked perfectly and the service was even better. It was a wonderful memory that will last forever.

For $10 pp you get a one-hour loop around the bay with 5 stops for you to disembark. Our captain provided some nice insights, including pointing out Madonna's mega yacht. Great value.

On August 18 we operated an Olde New England bus tour to Newport to experience the horse-drawn coaching event at The Elms. After a group lunch in town on Bellevue Avenue, we headed to Bowen's Wharf to board The Majestic for an afternoon narrated sightseeing cruise. Owner Max Nuki boarded our bus on arrival and welcomed us to the Majestic and escorted us to the magnificent ship. We have nothing but praise for his staff and crew. We had a very enjoyable cruise despite somewhat drizzly weather conditions. This sightseeing cruise offers a great value for individuals and groups
I know from personal experience that the luncheon cruises on The Majestic are also excellent.
The only reason we did not book the lunch cruise for this group is because the timing of the Coaching event conflicted with the luncheon cruise departure schedule.

I like this cruise cause it's short and sweet. I think 1 hour cruise is enough since there are alot to see and do stuffs in Newport. The tour guide was pretty good. We went on a 330pm cruise, had clam chowder.. that was awesome! The crew was great. The Majestic boat was clean. It you have less time in Ri, I think this cruise is prefect.. 1 hour ...It is a fair price $20 per person.
