This was a birthday celebration idea and what a great and unique way to spend the evening with friends for a special occasion.
This was a brilliant night out. Delicious choice of meal for our dinner followed by a great disco where we were never off the dance floor. They served our drinks in special souvenir glasses and there was a promise of one to take home at the end of the evening but it didn't materialise. Would've been a nice touch had they kept that promise. Great views of the Boston skyline from the water. Not a lot of cruising as the boat appeared to be stationary once we had left the dock. But a great evening was had by us all.
This is a must if you are visiting Boston. Food was great and the scenery was amazing. It's highly recommended from our family.
food was great music was good and ship was the best I have been on
Even though it was raining it didn't stop the wonderful time we had. The cruise director and the staff were wonderful and very helpful. The food was really good. We will take this cruise again next time we are in Boston.
Were a party of 4. Cruising on the Spirit of Boston is always enjoyable, and we are looking forward to our next trip.
Wonderful evening amazing food. Good entertainment shame the trip wasn't longer
Great harbor tour. The two hour tour was just perfect. Wonderful experience and great food!
Wonderful night out - great food - lovely scenery - perfect crew. Couldn't have been better !
FANTASTIC, We loved it. Well worth the money. They had non stop entertainment on the boat. The staff were the entertainers! We highly recommend it!

Cruise was delightful! We enjoyed being out on the water and seeing things from the harbor that we would not have seen otherwise.
A lovely evening. We would do it again. Seeing the city at night from the bay was a treat for all. Nice boat, super crew, average food. Thanks.

This cruise was delightful. We had a very good time and enjoyed to be on the upper deck and see Boston and everything. The staff were very good , but the food wasn't very good.
We had a wonderful time! It was just perfect for an evening out with my family. The DJ was great and lots of dancing. The crowd defintely enjoyed his style. We just wished it was longer than 2.5 hours. Will certainly recommend this cruise to friends and family. Thank you!

Staff were well organised and talented and the food was average. The best part of the cruise was watching the sunset over the city. It was much quieter outside on the decks due to the entertainment, which would have been fine had that been our major reason for booking this cruise. Overall, it was a good evening.
We did the dinner cruise hoping to see some of Boston Harbor. We did not take into account the fact that it essentially gets dark 2 hours sooner on the East Coast as opposed to where we live on the Gulf Coast. So, it was pitch black when we boarded the ship. The food was good and the employees friendly and professional. Things ran quite well and everyone knew their rolls and timing. Departure and docking was smooth.
One of the things that we learned was that they had different seating assignments based on your willingness to pay upgrades. We asked for a window seat and were told that our ticket was not for window seating. It was not apparent to me when I made the reservation on Viator that this would be the case. I had assumed it was general admission because I only saw 1 reservation admission price for this cruise. After returning home, I went directly to the Spirit of Boston web site and saw that there were obviously different tiers of pricing on their site.
The cruise ship was nice, as it has been recently renovated. It had 3 decks of seating and an upper, observation deck. We boarded and asked if we could go up to the 3rd deck. Again, for a better harbor view. We were told we could and did so. We got a drink and got seated. After a few minutes a supervisor came and told us that the deck we were on was reserved for a group. There had been several busses disinterring guest when we arrived and some of them were apparently prepaid charters for the cruise. We were escorted to the lower, 1st deck. I explained that we had asked if we could go up and were told we could. The supervisor replied that the crew member should have distinguished whether we were in the private party group before doing so. Politely handled, but could have been avoided.
Had no idea this was 50s theme cruise the night we booked this. The line has several theme cruises. It would have been nice to know this in advance. Some people may not like the theme planned for the evening. All in all, it was alot of fun mostly due to the crowd that knew in advance of the 50s theme, dressed for it and did it as group event. Decent buffet food. Live band and DJ for dancing. No narration / explanation on what was on your tour route so not sure what we were passing on the shoreline.
Viator apparently forgot to book the dinner with the Spirit of Boston. Thank goodness I had made a copy of the booking with date and all the information sent to me via Viator. It did NOT have a confirmation number, but showed I did pay. The Spirit of Boston said it was not their vault as Viator did not book it. And the shipped was completely booked and had no extra seats! But thank goodness they were kind enough to place us on another of their dinner cruises that evening. It was not what I had wanted or booked but as we just had flown in that afternoon and planned dinner on the Spirit of Boston we were tired and hungry. And we could not rebook for another date as we were there for only that weekend. Viator goofed big time!! But the owners of Spirit of Boston did work and get us on another dinner cruise that evening within the hour. Not the food we had planned on but at least they work to fix the royal goof by Viator. We did not have the sunset dinner cruise with a buffet but a plate dinner after sunset.
The boat seemed dated. Food was just ok. DJ didn't "read" his audience. Played too many songs that no one wanted to dance to. Did not play requested songs. Definitely not worth the $100+ cost.
