Got to see how the mega rich lived at one time. Amazing "cottages".

Vanderbilt's Newport Tour (NE03) visiting the Breakers and the Marble House. It was a very good tour marred by waits for the busses as the tour vendor used the same bus for three groups. Of course the impact of traffic and late-returners snowballed. Newport is very compact and the town itself can be easily done on foot. This was the second tender port and the complaints were rampant about the time it took to get ashore. It was not a problem for us since we were on a ship's tour that used the forward tender landing or for others with Elite and above status.

Interesting but too short a visit. Also a little pricey through Princes.

We did love this port, the houses were fantastic to walk through and the history was great. We particularly liked the Vanderbilt house with the individual tour headsets. Don't miss the kids cubby house outside that is more like a small cottage that people could live in.

Same as above because the tour included both homes.

The house is fabulous. Having read the book, Consuelo and Alva Vanderbilt, I was interested in seeing the house that Alva designed and where she plotted her daughter's loveless marriage to the Duke of Marlborough. There is a small snack bar on the premises, which is important if your excursion runs straight through lunch as ours did.
