It's the first thing you'll hear when boarding the Northern Star - a friendly and appreciative "Welcome Aboard" from the Captain and crew. When you step on board you'll quickly notice that she is designed and decorated like your very own private yacht. Her open-air decks and rich interior, including a temperature-controlled main salon, lower deck and upper “Admiral Deck” are decorated with a warm, black walnut tone together with brass highlights. She has a mix of comfortable upholstered chairs, yacht style plush seating, round tables, and large windows that surround the main salon. She was finished in 2002 and reflects the handsome elegance of a 1920’s style plumb stem inland waterway steamer. Most importantly she plots a smooth and relaxing course no matter what the wind and weather on every trip.
Folks are coming back again and again! We had one guest this past season who returned over 7 times with different friends and family. Maybe we need a "Frequent Sailor" card? Guests love our Captain's entertaining, welcoming and informative live narriation - and the wheel house door is always open for children and adults to come visit! It's a perfect place to sip some wine and chat with the Captain. Half of each cruise is filled with unique and informative tid bits along with a light and humorous flavor. No sleepy pre-recorded narration here! The remaining portion of our scenic trips are left for you to sit back, relax and enjoy the unique cross border sights and sounds of Lake Memphremagog. It's New Englands only international lake cruise and no passports are needed. Give us a call, make your reservation and relax, rejuvenate and restore on the Northern Star!
Our crew is what makes your cruising experience one to remember. From the Captains live and enlightening narration to the deck hands, chef and servers friendly and welcoming smile, your trip on the Northen Star will be one to remember for sure! We're all here for you.
All our crew is trained and retrained in all United States Coast Guard life saving drills and first aid. We take your safety and comfort very seriously so rest assured you are in good hands. The service on board the Northern Star is second to none. As a matter of fact a guest mentioned that if all buinsesses in Newport had such great customer service as the Northern Star they all would be thriving. We take that comment to heart on every cruise and enjoying making hundreds of new friends every day. Be sure to say "hi" to Jadon, Jade and Captain Andy this coming cruising season.
