The set up was beautiful but metallic chairs weren't it. The food was surprisingly great. Top notch service from the friendly crew. Spent most of the time outside enjoying the views and fresh breeze from the ocean. The fireworks was the cherry on top. Would definitely recommend this great experience!

Great Boston Views at Night
Lynn_N, Sept 2023
It was actually better food than anticipated and the views were spectacular. The only negative is several passengers started smoking on the outside deck after dinner but the staff quickly addressed the situation. First dinner cruise and will definitely go again.
Great views of Boston
Lyutina_G, Sept 2023
Good atmosphere, good fresh food, good DJ, nice music, excellent service. Plenty of room with two decks indoors and one outside. Spectacular views of Boston! Could improve identifying where to board the boat. It was good we had time to look around to find them under the Spirit of Boston sign.

Natalie_F, Aug 2023
the most memorable part was the sunset and the views we saw. The food played a big part it was better than we expected.
Great party time! No so great food!
Vironica_A, Aug 2023
Your staff is amazing, greeter, hostess, wait staff, and DJ all top quality! The only part which needed work was the food. Sadly the lacked flavor, the quality was there but no flavor. We spoke with the chef they were amazing but salt and pepper isn’t the only thing needed! I would love to come again because we had an amazing but the food needs an upgrade quickly. Lastly even the dessert were frozen and Boston has amazing baker this should not happen with frozen desserts!
A nice evening
James_C, Aug 2023
The view of the shore line was very nice, and the dj did a good job with the music I thought the food was just OK

Nickelle_L, July 2023

20th Anniversary excursion
Paul_B, July 2023
This was our 20th anniversary excursion. The staff was pleasant. Milama was an excellent server with a great personality. Bethany was very accommodating. The DJ did a great job. He had the challenge of a varying aged crowd. Being a DJ myself, his mixing skills were impressive, and he really hit all the age groups to get the dance floor hopping. We had torrential downpours, but with the overhead covering on the top deck, people could still venture out for some fresh air. The food was delicious. Thank you for a great night,
Joseph_C, July 2023
The view of the city was amazing. The food was great along with the environment. The staff was fantastic and I going to recommend this to everyone. This was worth its value
Bad communication
VICKY_S, July 2023
We were not able to go on our dinner trip. They changed my cruise to be a free upgrade but failed to tell me it was at a different location. By the time someone answered my call, 20 minutes later, we got a Lyft and missed the cruise by 5 minutes
Beautiful Harbor Views
Debbie_V, June 2023
Great views of Boston. Food was very good and staff was very friendly. Plenty of room in the shop and outside in open area to roam.
Fraud scam!!!
Isabel_G, June 2023
Do not waste your money booking with this third-party vendor. They booked a trip for me on the incorrect date when I wasn’t even in the city that I was traveling to and then they are not willing to refund or rebook my trip. So that means I’m out $263. I’m telling you do not book with this vendor, you will have a better opportunity to book directly with the excursion.
Average at best.
Destiny_F, Mar 2023
No carving station, upstairs buffet was closed, downstairs was closed due to private party and regular buffet wasn’t all that great. Only one meat option. Dance floor was small, dJ kept playing sad or slow music.
The trip was not that...
Tanvi_P, Feb 2023
The trip was not that great as expected. Could have more services when compared to price of the same.
Okay time on the Spirit of Boston
Michael_W, Dec 2022
Food was fine, however we did not expecting a party boat atmosphere. We had to go to the lowest level of the ship and hide in the bow to get away from the loud music.
Excellent, amazing experience
Gregory_P, Nov 2022
Great experience, I would do it again and tell friends and family about it. Great view, food was amazing
It’s was a great...
Zabdi_M, Nov 2022
It’s was a great experience. The staff was very nice and friendly and the view was great! Thank you for everything !
John_D, Oct 2022
The whole experience was subpar compared to cost…From the food to being nickeled and dime-ed from the cost of drinks that wasn’t included to the high pressured sale of a photo I didn’t request to take…
Wounded full experience
Lydia_N, Oct 2022
