Families visiting the Lakes Region of New Hampshire in the summer have many pastimes to choose from, and boating on Lake Winnipesaukee is among the favorite activities of locals and tourists alike. From a quiet kayak ride to a dinner dance cruise, there is a water activity for everyone. But for families, the M/S Mount Washington offers something extra special.
On Fridays in July and August, Mount Washington Cruises hosts Family Fun Day. This activity-themed day cruise aboard the M/S Mount Washington offers parents and children a chance to explore Lake Winnipesaukee while enjoying entertainment geared for the young crowd. The ship’s mascot, Monty the Mallard, will be on deck to meet the kids, along with a special guest, who may be a magician, a clown, a puppeteer, or storyteller. On Friday, July 29th, Captain Radical will take over the ship for a pirate party, complete with a treasure hunt, pirate stories, and games. A special princess tea party will take place in August. Adults can enjoy the cruise while the children have fun with the crew!
Another family-friendly event also takes place on the M/S Mount Washington on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer—Family Party Night! At this festive evening of dining and dancing, there is always a special entertainer for the kids on the Main Deck, and dancing to live music for adults in the Flagship Lounge on the second deck. Folks of all ages can enjoy a buffet dinner as the ship cruises for two and a half hours around the lake. What an elegant way to spend time with loved ones!
Celebrate summer with a quintessential cruise on the big lake aboard the M/S Mount Washington, and create lasting memories for everyone in the family!
