Early season but exceptional weather. We very much enjoyed the ride. We could have sat inside, but on such a beautiful day we enjoyed the deck seating

My husband and I spontaneously went on the final day cruise of the season. We rode from Weirs Beach to Wolfeboro NH. Ate lunch and rode back. The ride was fun and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Great decision!!

I live here year round but will always take a cruise on the lake on the big boat. It could be a dinner or dinner and dancing or just a daytime jaunt on the lake. All are equally wonderful.

One of the best things about our trip to New Hampshire. Staff was friendly. Nice gift shop on board. Clean bathrooms. Great price for the length of the scenic cruise. Tourist photos were reasonably priced.

This is a must-do activity if you are in the area. Nostalgic and relaxing. Annie and the Orphans were playing - they played well and provided dancing. The food is ok- this trip is more for the ride and entertainment.

The best way to have this answered is to go to their web site and ask. I don't know the answer to this question. Oh, happy 50th Anniversary, from a couple that just celebrated their 52nd!
