Review 2 for Famous Homes & Hideaways Cruise
Date:June 30, 2011
educational and beautiful boat ride
My boyfriend and I attended the famous homes tour. We were the first to get onto the boat located right next to the ship. We were told the upper outside deck to the middle on the left were the best viewing seats and they were! The boat led us to an area near Hamilton where we saw many beautiful homes owned by lots of wealthy people. Some were famous but most were big corporate people. The tour guides did an amazing job explaining the history of the homes and they really knew their information. Take note, there are no drinks or food included in this tour but you can purchase snacks or drinks including rum punch. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it. I would not recommend it for children under 10 as they may become bored.
It helped that we took this excursion on a spectacular day, but this excursion was wonderful in itself. The tour guide knew so much about the homes on the tour, and he shared a great deal of information with us. He was personable and friendly as was the crew. Drinks were available to purchase for those who wanted them. We highly recommend this excursion through NCL. It was well-priced.
