Meet your crew

Meet the crew that make it all happen:


I’m Kim and for almost 25 years, I have been overseeing much of Classic Cruises of Newport’s Operations.  I love what we do and I love seeing our guests have a memorable cruise while visiting Newport, RI – some say it was the best part of their vacation!   When I’m not at work, you can find me hanging out with my husband and our dogs (Boo and Stella), traveling and skiing in the off season. I’m also an avid Pez Collector and have over 2500 pez dispensers in my collection.


My name is Lauren, I’m senior staff at the ticket desk and have been at my job for 6 years!   I was born and raised in Newport and I love my summers here.  I’m an illustrator as well and spend a lot of my free time creating and doing freelance projects. Being outdoors is also a passion so I enjoy hiking and hanging out at the beach with friends. 🖌🖍

My name’s MK! I’m senior staff at our ticket desk and have been working here for 4 years.  I am a Newport native, recent grad, loving all things summer! You can find me catching some rays down at the beach or relaxing on a paddle board. I am a big fan of yummy food, dogs and a good time 🙃



Ahoy!  Im Nora.  I was born and raised in Newport, grew up at a lighthouse, and I have spent my life on the water.  This is my 9th summer aboard Rum Runner II!  When not on Narragansett Bay, I am traveling the country is a self built tiny house that was featured on HGTV, the DIY Network and HGTV Canada.  I am a professional actor, equestrian, a connoisseur of perfectly poached eggs, a Shakespeare buff and a bona fide goofball.  I look forward to showing you my hometown!
