Q:

My question wasn't answered; what I wanted to know is once the boat gets to Mt. Vernon how much time is allotted for the Mount Vernon tour itself? The groupon just says "time is alloted for a tour" but it does not specify how much time. I am not happy about the food choices available on the boat and I know that food is available at Mt. Vernon so I was trying to figure out if there might be time to eat there instead of the hot dogs and other junk food available on the boat. Or, I could pack a picnic lunch and eat it once I get to Mt. Vernon if consuming outside food is not allowed while on the boat.

Kim O.  asked on  Jun 12, 2013

A:

You will be at Mount Vernon from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You will not be able to bring outside food or drinks on board. There is a food court at Mount Vernon. Click here for information about the food court.

Q:

I am planning to go with my wife and 2 year old daughter. I understand from earlier posts that under 5 years travel for free. My question is - do I need to in that case buy only 2 tickets now from groupon and while scheduling the cruise let them know that I have a 2 year old travelling with me. So now I have to pay only $27 X 2 = $54 ?

Prakash S.  asked on  Jun 12, 2013

A:

Yes, you'll only need to pay for the 2 of you. When booking your reservation after you purchase the Groupon, please be sure to select "comp ticket" for any children 5 and under if booking online. If booking by phone, please mention how many children 5 and under you'll be bringing. Exact instructions for booking your reservation will be listed on the Groupon voucher after you make the purchase.
