Marvel at the World War II naval destroyer, the USS Cassin Young, as well as the USS Constitution, also known as Old Ironsides, a nickname earned because of her invincibility in battle.

An enjoyable lunchtime cruise
Aug 2021
The staff were friendly and helpful and we had an enjoyable time. The buffet was good and the DJ played my kind of music. My only complaint is the cost of drink. I ordered a glass of "house chardonnay" and was charged $15, which with the tip brought it up to $18. This is the most I've ever paid for a glass of wine and think it's excessive. My friends' drinks, gin and tonic and Bacardi and coke, were only $10 each plus tip, which is average, however, if you plan on ordering a gloss of wine, you may want to check the price first!

Party /music boat not a tour boat
The boat is beautiful staff incredible. Unfortunately I thought there was narration as to what we were floating by etc. it was more of a wedding type cruise. Loud music dj etc. food ok. The tour mentions all this stuff we go by but doesn’t mention it when you do.not for tourists in my opinion. But overall a nice ride on the water.

Great way to celebrate a birthday!
Aug 2019
We took a friend & her husband to celebrate her "Big 60", and we all had a blast. We boarded at 11 a.m. & the buffet opened well before our noon departure so we were able to eat & still be outdoors for the majority of the cruise. The buffet is open for some time, so you will not go hungry. The DJ made a great recommendation, let the food line die down--there was barely a line maybe 20 minutes after it opened but even in the line, everyone was patient & happy.

Our fantastic waitress took great care of us and made the birthday girl's day even nicer with a birthday greeting & special dessert (that she tracked us down for up on deck to deliver!) The food was delicious, the views were awesome and the trip was an overall success. We noticed that everyone working on the cruise actually seemed to like being there which directly impacts how you feel as a guest--they did a great job.

There have been so many changes over the last few years in Boston, and this adventure allowed us to see it all from the the water, just amazing. Bring your camera (if you don't have a smartphone) and if the weather looks iffy, a disposable rain poncho if you like being outside. If you prefer to be inside, that was great too--the DJ was fun and had people of all ages dancing including a a lady dancing from her walker, she was thrilled! The ship was clean including the rest rooms. The only downside I can think of was the proximity of the tables but they are movable so we were able to adapt quickly when needed to accommodate seating at our table and the one behind us.

This was a great experience, and we will be back.
