The Spirit of Boston Dinner Cruise

If you’re looking for a little more than a cocktail during your Boston cruise, consider taking a dinner cruise instead! The Spirit of Boston holds a Signature Dinner Cruise at various times throughout the year. You can dine and dance while seeing the Boston skyline from a new perspective. The cruise lasts a few hours and includes a dinner buffet, music, and views of waterfront landmarks, such as the Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, Boston’s Seaport District, and the USS Constitution warship.
