Superb evening and whilst my wife and I have been on a trip like this before in Thailand the food was excellent and a most enjoyable evening with excellent photo opportunities from the boat which was very impressive as well
It was a wonderful birthday gift. Staff was very friendly. Beautiful music. Warm atmosphere.
The most relaxing evening we had in Boston! Everything from the welcome onboard, the delicious dinner, the service and the entertainment were top notch. Boston is best seen from the water, and we experienced fantastic views of the waterfront and of the cruise ships in the harbour. All in all, thoroughly recommended and great value for money.
Almost missed the cruise because finding parking is a bit tricky. Everyone from the greeting officer at the gang plank, to the office where I exchanged my Viator coupon for tickets, to the waiters, hostess were great. They really tried to make this a special event for everyone. Weather was great, nice clear sky and a great view. Food was mediocre but made up for by the atmosphere, venue, friendliness of staff. Nice sit down dinner, attentive waiter. Entertainment consisted of a male and female singer. They were great too. All in all, recommended. If you can get a discounted rate, even better.
This was a lovely night evening although it was raining and cold. The on board entertainment was fabulous. It was a great end to our stay in Boston. We got to see the night lights through the rain and fog.
Once we got on the boat, it was quite a nice time. The food was good and the cruise was quite enjoyable with great views of the city and harbor. I would recommend the dinner and the boat. Getting to the boat was an entirely different matter. The information about where to find the boat was almost useless, and the reservation page didn't even have the name of the boat on it. It also didn't tell us that we needed to go to an office to pick up boarding passes beforehand.
As a single traveller this is probably not ideal as it was mostly couples and a few family groups. The staff were not comfortable with a single and kept checking that I was ok.
The boat was beautiful with a lovely atmosphere. The food was very good. Our only disappointment was that we had a very long wait between our starter and main course - they came to clear away our cutlery and we explained we hadn't eaten yet. They were very apologetic and we got our food quickly, however it was obvious they'd forgotten about us. Due to the boat being only half full and the price that you pay for the excursion, we felt that this was very poor.
The boat was lovely and the service was excellent, however the food was cold and not that great. The duck starter was swimming in a pool of balsamic vinegar which was all you could taste! Furthermore, the boat was filled with couples and the music/band didn't play anything that you could get up and dance to without a partner. All in all a very enjoyable evening, however not sure it was worth the money and I don't think I would do it again.
A beautiful boat and the Boston skyline was great!
The dinner was substandard. For visiting Boston for the first time we expected some good local food. However we were very disappointed to find out there was no soup (clam chowder). Dinner was a choice of chicken, beef ribs (meat pulled off the rib) or salmon. We had the salmon and it was dried out. We were offered a roll before the meal and a half hour into the meal a second roll was unavailable as they ran out???
Service was slow, needing to ask/wait for drinks multiple times, however the waiter did his very best as he was serving multiple parties. Would not recommend this tour unless they upgrade the meal.
