The last port was Newport, RI, and it was my favorite. Newport is gorgeous, and was the closest to a quaint New England town on the whole cruise. The lines for the tenders were very long, I think it took about an hour between the time we started waiting until we touched land, maybe more. We got a free map of the town and walked all the way through to the beach by the cliff walk. There is a really cool tower structure in the middle of town, "The Newport Tower" which was built by unknown persons, possibly Vikings according to the docent. The kids loved building sand castles on the beach. We walked along the cliff and toured The Breakers -- summer home/mansion of the Vanderbilts ($20 each for adults, $5 each for childdren.) The audio tour was outstanding and we all enjoyed the Breakers very much, even my husband who doesn't like that kind of thing. We had to catch a city bus back to port ($2/each with a bus stop on the street behind The Breakers). We made it to the ship on the last tender.
