"We had a wonderful cruise of Narragansett bay and the surrounding lighthouses on Coastal Queen Cruises. All the staff members were great and the boat was spotless. It was a perfect wedding anniversary treat for my husband.......... and he learnt a few new things about the history from the great cruise narrator that was onboard."
