One of the most popular Boston Harbor dining and entertainment options is the 2-3 hour cruise aboard the 192’ Spirit of Boston, It’s one of three vessels owned by Entertainment Cruises, each with its own distinct character. Spirit of Boston provides just that--a spirited, high-energy onboard experience with dining, music, dancing, and interactive entertainment on three climate-controlled decks and with outdoor seating. Decks 1 and 2 have a DJ and dance floor.
There are lunch, lobster lunch, cocktail, dinner and moonlight buffets.
With a 600 passenger capacity, not only individuals but also groups and special events can be accommodated.
It’s a popular choice for proms and other school events, employee outings, birthdays, graduations, and senior groups. The lowest deck, with a capacity of 212, can be reserved for private parties. For larger groups, Deck 2 can be reserved in conjunction with Deck 3, which has outer decks and skydecks.
Pricing starts at $34.90 for the 2-3 hour moonlight cruise.
For an elegant, more sophisticated experience of fine dining and live music while sailing through Boston Harbor, the 175’ Odyssey is a top choice. With bandstands and dance floors, the updated and refurbished Odyssey is the ideal choice for Mother’s Day, a refreshing getway, or a romantic evening.
Breakfast, lunch, cocktail, dinner and custom cruises are available. A three-course plated menu is served on standard dinner and lunch cruises, and a buffet menu is served on brunch cruises.
