A lovely, walk-able port. We only waited 10 minutes or so for a tender in the morning, and there was a 20 minute wait for a tender to return to the ship around lunchtime.

Because we had to tender and it was foggy we couldn't get off the ship until about 1p.m. This limited the amount of time spent in Newport. We took the local bus to the Forty Steps and walked the cliff walk for about an hour, got back on the bus and back to the tender (at which time the fog had rolled in again). Read Less

Newport is a beautiful, walkable, shoppable, historic small city with lots to offer. Would love to spend a week there.

The ship excursions really didn't appeal, so we opted to walk around the town after we rode the tender in. The shops were varied and interesting and we had one of the best meals of the trip at The Moorings.

We pre-booked the 2 mansion tour through the historical society (I believe) We bought the day pass for the trolley and really enjoyed ourselves. The Breakers was simply amazing

Friends picked us up and took us on the scenic drive. We toured the Doris Duke Mansion and had lunch in a little café in town.

We had travelled to Newport before, so spend the time walking along the Cliff Walk and back through the nearby streets, admiring the architecture. Enjoyed an excellent lobster roll at Bowen's Wharf seafood festival.

We didn't use any of the packaged excursions. We just took the trolley to a couple of the mansions so we could stay at each one as long as we wanted to. This worked out great.

Newport was gorgeous, and very walkable if you are in good shape. Start early in the morning and walk to the head of the Cliff Walk, then take your time strolling along the water. The tender ride takes about a 1/2 hour, and the line to get back on the ship in the afternoon is very long - so plan accordingly. Read Less

Rhode Island is a beautiful state. We'd been there before so we walked around the town, and visited the places we did before that we liked. Try The Moorings. Great "Chowdah", and fun bar time!
