Took excursion on our first trip two years ago. Very worthwhile. Guide excellent. This last trip we just walked the town and shopped.

Took public bus to the Cliffs walk. Beautifully rugged coastline. Booked tour with Viking tours through the visitors center. Got overview of city highlight and tour of the Breakers. Both the coach and house tour were excellent.

Newport is a great city and if you like boats there are hundreds in the harbor. It's just so wonderful. This is another city to come back to and spend some time.

There was nothing really to see in Newport. Wasn't worth being tendered to and from the ship. Some family members got off and returned almost immediately. We enjoyed our time relaxing on the cruise ship.

The boardwalk and docks are definitely for the millionaires. But that said there is lots of good shops of interest on the wharfs. The main streets of the town also have plenty of varied shopping and many preserved historic houses.

We walked around the old part of town and around the marinas. Shopping area very commercialised and expensive.

Only ship's tour we took. It was great, we could have used a little more time at each house but overall terrific. The tours are all self guided, you are just paying for the transportation and admission.

Tender port. Cunard offers a free shuttle to the main shopping areas which are close to the cliff walk. You can purchase tickets on line from the Newport trust which oversees the Vandebilt home and the other "cottages", which is less expensive than buying a ship excursion. They are worth seeing at least once. There is no air conditioning in them so be forewarned. If it is a hot day you WILL get warm. Read Less
