We went on this for new year, not ideal as the fireworks were cancelled which was part of the reason to go on this. The company gave you the choose to cancel with full refund or get a discount, I think a large number cancelled as the boat was so quiet & there were a lot of no shows as... More

Thank you for your review. We were sad to not have a Firework show as well. We are pleased to hear that the rest of your evening such as your service and food was great. Come see us soon! Warm wishes from the water, Jasmin More

This was part of a planned activity for our large group. Ours was a dinner cruise. The food was very good, the service was not. I had delicious crab cakes and a good chocolate dessert. It was a chilly night too cold to stand outside to see the city. I would recommend going on a day cruise. This cruise lasted... More

The basic price is over $100, with drinks and lobster extra, so I was expecting a high quality experience. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out that way. The food was very good, but for that price they did not have gluten free bread, and only 1 main course was suitable for me. Would have expected them to be prepared for gluten... More

We went as a couple for the Odyssey dinner cruise on a Saturday night, and it was a very good experience overall. The menu is delicious and the servers are very accommodating. They will put you at a window table if it is available, even if you did not pay extra for it. I would recommend going in summer rather... More

Food was good, staff was friendly, experience was amazing. Despite the tickets costing 100$+, the experience and view was worth it. Included in the price of your fare is: app, main course, desert and unlimited fountain drinks. Lobster, and alcohol are extra charges. Staff is accommodating and the live music was a nice added touch compared to a cd playing... More

We booked a romance package for the dinner cruise, and it was going to be the highlight of our weekend in Boston. Arriving at the time stated on the ticket, we found the ship to be half full, with people already eating their appetiser. Strange I thought, as the ticket said we were not allowed to board that early. We... More

My husband and I took this dinner cruise on a Tuesday night; a great time to go! We've gone on dinner cruises before on weekends that are too crowded. But this ship wasn't even half full on a Tuesday night, so we got a 4-person table to ourselves. We boarded about 20 minutes before the ship took off and we... More

We used the Odessey for our wedding.. for reasons I am only reviewing atmosphere and dinner. This is a great cruise to go on with a mate. I would not recommend for children. The food was great, but small quantities. We plan on returning for our 1 year anniversary.

We celebrated our son's birthday on Odyssey. After arrival the staff greeted us. They even congratulated him on his birthday. Our server, Caroline, was amazingly sweet, professional, and helpful. We all felt welcome during the dinner. The music was very nice and the guitar player was excellent! Thank you for making this event so wonderful!

For years my wife wanted to get on the Odyssey Cruise around Boston Harbor ... our day trips to Spectator Island or even Cape Cod weren't satisfying enough so we got the cruise ship finally. Large busy ship but the staff made you feel like you were the only ones on board. Rebecca, our server, greeted us with a glass... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
