Only specially-trained service dogs are permitted. Service animals must be trained to perform a specific task for an individual with a disability. Emotional support animals are not permitted nor protected under ADA.

The M/S Mount Washington has a restaurant on board, and therefore does not allow outside food and beverage to be brought on board, with the exception of celebration cakes which we do not offer. If there is a dietary restriction or reason you may need to bring your own food, please contact our Ticket Office before you arrive for your cruise.

Can I bring a stroller on board?
Absolutely. However, we do ask that strollers remain on the Main Deck and are not carried to the upper decks. If the child does not require the use of the stoller while on board, please speak with a member of our deck crew and they can store it for you.

Are group discounts available?
Yes, we offer group discounts for parties of 20 or more with an advance reservation. Please contact our Ticket Office to speak with a group sales representative.

Is it possible to host a private function on a Sunday Brunch Cruise?
Yes, private rooms are available for parties or between 40 and 125 guests. For parties of more than 125, a ship charter will be required. For more information, please contact our function sales department.
