Great boat ride, we were able to see beautiful decorated boats and homes. The only thing we found anoying was the terrible radio station music that was played for 2 hours.

It was beautiful, but it seemed that there was less participation of the boats and home decorations compared to what we have seen over the previous years. Must be due to the difficult economic situation most everyone is experiencing...continued

I always like the Newport Beach Boat parade. I can't review the event on the parade itself, because this year we got a bit of rain, it was cold, and I think there were fewer boats than normal. However, come prepared for the cold, and you'll get...continued

A fun date night thing to do for the holidays. It was a double date and we all enjoyed this event. The boats were beautifully decorated. Though a little chilly, still a great way to enjoy the boat show and each other. I highly recommend for a...continued

This is the essence of the holiday spirit in Southern California. Some of the boats and houses were just glowing with lights. The boat we were on both joined the parade and pulled out of the parade for a while so we could view the other boats. ...continued

The boat trip was fun. It was mostly standing only so be prepared for that. We bundled up with coats and blankets so were comfortable. Parking was awful. We live 30 minutes away and gave ourselves one and a half hours. We barely made it.

I've heard about this event for years, but thanks to Goldstar tickets, I finally decided to seize the opportunity. Glad I did, it was a beautiful Southern California evening...cool and brisk without being freezing cold. The houses that dot the...continued

This was my first time going and it started a tradition for myself and my family. I had a great time with my friend. In 2012 I went with my mom and gma. In 2013, I went with my mom, my gma, and my step father.

The boats, the lights, the setting were fantastic. Our 6yr old visitor was ecstatic. The boat was small and intimate, which we liked. We brought sandwiches because we knew refreshments were minimal. Parking is very limited, the structure costs...continued

This was one of the greatest ways to bring the year to a close. There were so many awesomely decorated boats. It was a pleasure to witness how much time and energy the boat owners invest into their boats for this parade. I would recommend that...continued

Let's start with the parking situation-we arrived early and went to the parking garage that was recommended for the event -at Newport Landing. We pulled into the driveway and waited...and waited....for nearly a half hour. During that time some...continued

The weather was beautiful and the ligts are amazing. THe boat and the facilities are very poor and I would not waste money next year buying this through Goldstar.
They cram too many people on each boat and there are not enough seating for more...continued

Allowed close to 3 hours for what is normally a 1 hr drive to make our 5:30pm reservation. Called company when it appeared we might be a few minutes late; we were told we'd be put on a waiting list for the 7:15pm boat and would probably get on. We...continued
