    Great experience. The narrated guide was fantastic. We learned so much about Boston that we otherwise would not have known or even thought to learn/see. Trip inspired us to see the Old State House and Us Constitution. Will def be back to Boston to explore more thanks to this trip. It was about 1 hour which was perfect. Saw a lot, staff on time and very friendly.

    After our cruise ended in Boston, my friends and l added an extra day to explore the city. Went to several places, did the city bus tour and ended our day with the evening harbor cruise. There was a long line for the boat but we were able to get on despite making the booking so close to departure time.
    It was a beautiful evening for the cruise! We all had a great time watching the many other boats out on the water. The best part was watching the sunset and see the beautiful shades of pink and purple reflect off the waves as the sky started to turn dark. It was a great cruise!

    Food was basic buffet menu. Drink service was slower than expected. Had a nice window seat. Desserts were ok. I would have preferred more sea food on the menu.

    This brunch cruise was so much better than I expected it to be. The food and drinks were excellent and the staff on the boat were extremely friendly. If you’re looking for some chilled vibes with scenic views this is the one for you.

    It was a perfect cruise to share with friends ! We experienced what we expected with a beautiful sunshine. Perfect cruise time and different angle of the city of Boston.
    Cash is required to buy something during the trip.

    We loved our go city passes the only thing I wish you would change is The consecutive 2 days hop on and hop off. I wish we could just pick the 2 days we want to use them. We loved Fenway park tour!

    This was a fun cruise, with a lot of historical information. The narrator was very good. We enjoyed listening to him. We sat inside, as it was cool out, and enjoyed every minute of the ride. Would definitely recommend.

    Our Company outing on the cruise was nothing short of a FANTASTIC time had by all involved. The atmosphere, music and the views of Boston and surrounding areas were amazing and we really enjoyed this experience. The bartenders were amazing and the cocktails were delicious all night long. We have been asked to make this a yearly event for our company. The only thing we can not rave about was the food was average at best which is why we cannot give 5 stars. We look forward to enjoying another cruise next year!

    A good friend dropped into town and wanted to do something on the water. This was their first visit to Boston and it was a beautiful weekend so everything from Boston to the Cape was booked but Trip Advisor came to the rescue. Booking the Odyssey was fast and easy. Parking at Rowes Warf was reasonable and you could see the ship upon exiting the garage. Boarding was fast and friendly and the service was great.

    The Captain of The Odyssey and the DJ did their utmost to maximize the celebratory spirit of 1st summer-like day of 2022 on Boston Harbor. The multi-generational and diverse guests were dancing their hearts out. The energy and good feelings were contagious. The ship, the food, the drinks are top notch. Boston doesn't get any better than this!
