What You Can Expect

Boston Dinner Cruise

Boston Dinner Cruise

Board the ship and allow the ship’s photographer to capture the moment, should the mood strike. The captain and crew will welcome you aboard. Then head off to a candlelit table for two — or more. Some of the ship’s cabaret-style seating encourages meeting and greeting new friends, so be sure to mix and mingle. Three climate-controlled interior decks with panoramic windows allow for a perfect view of the Boston skyline. And be sure to visit the captain’s bridge.

It’s time for an elegant three-course dinner, complete with a tasting trio appetizer, entree and dessert, complemented by the excellent wine list.

Great food and entertainment go hand-in-hand on this cruise, so take in the live performances and festive atmosphere during dinner. Then grab a refreshing cocktail at the floating rooftop lounge, head to the spacious observation deck for a moonlit stroll under the stars or hit the dance floor with one of the hottest interactive DJs in the city, spinning top-40 hits from a variety of genres.

Notable attractions to see along the route include Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, the historic USS Constitution and Boston’s thriving Seaport District.

The food was great and the staff were also very good. I thought the ship would go out a little further then it did and just when we were getting into it . it was over. I would have liked a longer trip. But the view of Boston all lite up was beautiful.

Went on this trip with my husband in September 2013 and was one of the highlights of our holiday. It is something we will remember for a long long time. The weather was perfect to see a glorious sunset and a superb night time skyline. The dinner was really good and the staff were extremely nice and attentive. Would definitely recommend this trip.
