Mother's Day Brunch was yummy and the cruise was perfect. The piano player was a bonus. We enjoyed the trip and will be back for another cruise (especially since they are very reasonably priced). Well done!

We had a great cruise on Sunday July 20th. Weather was great. This attraction is a GEM that many folks in Vermont do not know about. You and your friends, family and especially your kids will really enjoy this ride. We elected for the Sunday buffet and it was great. The boat crew was fabulous and they couldn't be more accommodating. The Captain welcomes folks into the wheelhouse and the view is great from that post. We are planning to go on a Canadian cruise this season."
Took the Sunset Cruise. It was amazing. Staff was professional. Drinks were reasonable. Music just great to dance to. And we were offered the Captain's special braised pear dessert at no extra charge. Delicious!!! Well worth the money. Great night out. It is about time we have this amazing boat to enjoy our beautiful Lake Memphremagog! Thank You.... I have Lake Salem Inn and will certainly send my guests to your boat.

"I would highly recommend Chris and his friendly, accommodating team for any social excursion. Booking and planning were smooth and efficient, the cruise lovely, the food enjoyable and the atmosphere congenial. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening!"
Wow. Wow. Wow. We chartered The Northern Star for 2013 Taste of Newport guests for a sunset cruise and it was magnificent. The service from her crew, Andy, Maria and Patrick, was extraordinary. They really set the bar high for customer service. The cruise was refreshing and relaxing leaving the guests wanting more and planning to come back bringing friends & family. Some even are thinking about chartering for family events and/or business meetings. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for creating such a great experience. What a wonderful asset to Downtown Newport VT CHEERS!
Fantastic tour (the luncheon cruise) on a quiet, clean, very comfortable boat. Captain and crew were professional and gracious. Narrative was well-paced, interesting, and not overpowering. The scenery is exceptional. We recommend Norther Star Cruises enthusiastically.
My husband and I went on your 11:00 am cruise today and it was wonderful. The boat is so clean and comfortable. The lunch was delicious and fresh, served on nice dishes. The Captain and Amy were friendly and informative. And to top it off, the foliage was beautiful. We'll be recommending your cruises to our friends and family.
Thank you SO much to the crew for a wonderful trip on Saturday! A great time was had by all for our Fathers Day celebration! Well Done! We will definitely be back!
We had fun celebrating Father's Day on The Northern Star. Already planning our next event on the ship.
Thanks Captain Andy for a great excursion on Lake Memphremagog today!!! What an absolutely beautiful time!!
