Mary_J, Sept 2023
Seeing the harbor and the surrounding area. A big thrill was seeing Old Ironside at the dock. Sunset was 👏 amazing. As far as I could tell, everyone had a great time.

Joseph_B, Sept 2023
Captain or whomever was narrating spoke to fast to understand. But could have spoke more about sites we passed.
Great boat trip
Amber_V, Sept 2023
Everything was great except for one of the deck hands. She was very unpleasant, she seemed to help everyone around us but was bothered when we asked for service. Other than that the trip was great, the captain was knowledgeable and caring for everyone on the boat. We also had the best sunset of the summer thanks to hurricane lee.
Very relaxing and beautiful
Veriko_K, Sept 2023
Beautiful tour! Very relaxing and informative, great service at the boat. It was our first visit in Boston and we enjoyed it a lot. This first day tour already set a good vibe for us for next 3 days in Boston.
Loved it

Good times and smooth sailing
Christopher_L, Sept 2023
Memorable moments and a lovely cruise equals quality return of investment! Sunset over city from the harbor was golden.
Would not recommend
Jasmin_V, Sept 2023
Terrible music throughout the cruise. When asked the female host if the music can be changed she was not very friendly about it. For the majority of the age group (people in their 50-60s) that were paid guests the music & songs selected for the Sunset Cruise by the crew was inappropriate. Need Better discretion on who your guest are. The food & snack choice for purchase was very limited
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hello, Thank you for booking a cruise with us and taking some time to leave a review. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed by the music selection on your cruise. We certainly do not want any aspects of the atmosphere aboard to detract from the customer experience, and we will use your feedback as an opportunity to review our policies regarding the music aboard with the crew. We value and appreciate your input. Warmly, Classic Harbor Line Boston
Highly recommend excursion.

Great evening. Captain safe & knowledgeable. Friendly staff. Recommend upper deck starboard side. Mixed gathering casual attire with some in party dresses.
Nice sunset cruise
Tudor_P, Aug 2023
Pleasant cruise, unfortunately couldn't hear much of the comments due to the surrounding noise. The cannon blast from USS Constitution was the highlight of the cruise.
Great time!
William_M, Aug 2023
Old Iorn Sides… and other historical ships and points of interest. We got confused as to the time the cruise started it wasn’t explicit on your itinerary. You should be more specific on the time it leaves and ends. Also the name on your Vessel should be indicated.
Victoria_B, Aug 2023
Great adventure, unfortunately the sun was not shining, it was cloudy and misty. We did get to see many sail boats and the USS Constitution fire it sunset cannon.

The sunset boat right is the perfect activity for the whole family. It's a calm ride with beautiful sights of the city. As a Boston native, the fun facts that were shared were super informative.

Miriam_C, July 2023
Thé sunset views were beautiful! I would have liked a bit more narration, but otherwise a good trip.
Response from Host, July 2023
Hello, Thank you for cruising with us and for taking some time to share a review of your experience. We are glad that you enjoyed the sunset views, and we can certainly understand the desire for more narration. We also have many requests for less narration from guests that prefer to engage in quiet conversation or to simply enjoy the views without interruption, so we strive to strike a balance. You are always welcome to ask the crew about the surroundings! We hope you will join us again! Warmly, Classic Harbor Line Boston
Amazing experience
Jessica_G, July 2023
The sunset was gorgeous and there were plenty of places to sit and hang out before the main event. There’s some charcuterie and cheese onboard but it’s mostly a paid bar and the free coffee/tea station if you need anything
Great for couples
Jeffrey_W, July 2023
Thankfully, it was fantastic weather during the cruise. It was such a beautiful and breathtaking experience as the sun was setting behind the skyline of Boston. A fantastic escape for couples.
