Such a cool experience! We went on the lunch cruise, the food was very good and was a great selection. We also had a big margarita and got to bring the glass home with us, thought that pretty cool. The views of the Boston Harbor were awesome. The staff were so nice and friendly really made the experience even better. We would definitely come back and do it again.

I stayed in rhe lower deck and the DJ was fire. The food was really tasty too, really well seasoned. This was my second time on the dinner cruise but the boat was the Spirit of Boston ( the first time it was a different boat), the only thing that threw me off that was different from my first experience was that when my group started dancing our drinks were removed from the table and I still had more than half of my cup to go, that did not happen in the other boat.

I booked this Lunch cruise for our 10 year anniversary. I originally wanted the Dinner cruise but the time didn’t work for us due to having 4 month old twins. I was worried that it wouldn’t be as romantic or special but that wasn’t the case. Our waiter was amazing and made it the most special day. My husband told him we were celebrating our Anniversary and while we were enjoying the views on the top deck he secretly decorated our table with rose petals and a Happy Anniversary card. He also brought us special dessert, while we sat on the top deck. The DJ played a great variety of music, and our usual introvert selves danced to four songs. It was an unforgettable day, so worth it!
