It was ok. There was not seating available to everyone & most of the seating was outside & very cold. What would have made it good would have been some Christmas music. That would have gotten people more into the Christmas mood.

Had a great time and boat went slow so we could really see and enjoy the Chistmas lights fully. Try to get on at the front of the line so that you can get one of seats at the top of the boat. We sat on the right side and had a wonderful view.

It was a nice cruise of the harbor. Not as many homes decorated as we had hoped for. It was cold so dress warm. But could have used Xmas music or a narrative. And a cushion on the seat. Try to be first in line so you can get a seat on the...continued

What a great 2 hour tour; the only thing missing was Ginger and Marianne. It was a great way to get in the x-mas spirit enjoying all the beautiful decorations and 5+ million dollar homes. I bought gloves, scarfs, and caps for all my friends so we...continued

We had a group of 5 and picked up our tickets seperately and got on different boats at first. After talking to them, we were all able to get on the same boat and had a wonderful time. There were drinks on board for sale, but no restroom on board...continued

I thought I had read that this was to be a cruise during the famous Newport Harbor Boat Parade. I somehow missed reading that it was a "holiday cruise". If I had realized that I would not have taken the cruise. It was cold, crowded, very few...continued

The cruise itself was fine and so many homes were beautifully decorated. Our first time, so I can't compare the number of homes decorated to previous years.

What was disappointing was the lack of info. I was looking for a commentary since I...continued

The boat was quite comfortable but there were not as many fancy decorated houses as other boat harbor tours I have done for Christmas. One hour would have been long enough.

COLD so dress really warmly and even then you might not want to sit outside where the best view is! We went very early so I suspect many of the houses didn't have their lights up yet. The ones that did were very nice, though you can walk the...continued

It would of been nicer if more homes were lit up with Christmas lights, it just seemed that it was too dark. Bundle up! The wind was pretty cold, it started to drizzle,too many kids running around the upper deck was a bit scary when they got close...continued

The cruise was nice, the weather was perfect, and the homes were gorgeous...not as many decorated as in years past, but those who decorated their homes did a good job.

1 hour cruise around Newport Harbor. Numerous homes were elaborately decorated. Boat played holiday music and sold snacks and drinks (hot cider).

It was too long and too boring. It is one of those things that we can say we've done, we will not recommend it to anyone, and we would never do it again. Two hours of putting around when at least half the houses are dark and no type of...continued

We had a good time, but there just wasn't that many houses decorated. The wow factor was lacking. We usually go to the Huntington Harbor cruise and I have to say, we'll be won't be going back to Newport.
