Excellent cruise, service, staff! Had a birthday party on the Sunday Brunch Cruise and everyone had a wonderful time. Originally reserved the Spirit of Boston brunch cruise, but they canceled 4 days before the event—had to scramble for a replacement venue. Did a google search and found Northern Lights, which ended up being even better! Much smaller, cozier ship, beautiful woodwork interior, great staff. Allissa (food service manager) took very good care of us and makes the best Bloody Marys! Can’t say enough good things about our experience, everyone loved it and wants a redo in the summer. Highly recommend!


I had a fantastic time. I will go back next year for the holiday hot chocolate cruise. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because at first we were given the seat next to the bar two steps down from the main floor where all the fun was happening. Our table wad so small and tight as we shared it with another couple. Both my daughter and I were upset. We asked to move but we had assigned seats. A couple didn’t show up and we were able to move to the main floor where all the fun was happening.


Sunset cruise was an intimate gathering on the beautifully decorated Manhattan. The crew were very accommodating. Highly recommend!


We all loved the cozy warm boat interior but spent most of our time enjoying unique views from Boston harbor while sipping delicious complimentary hot chocolate(with marshmallows and whipped cream!). We enjoyed learning about the buildings we passed and watching the city lights turn on at sunset. Definitely worth every penny!!!


It was really good the boat was smooth amazing view of cape cod and the historical event of Great Britain. It had beverages wine beer and some much more the bathrooms were super clean 5 stars.


Captain Dante was great at the helm, explaining the sites and history from the harbor. If you go, be sure to pay a visit to him at the helm.


We would recommend Classic Harbor line highly! The ease of purchasing tickets and boarding the boat was great. I would recommend getting to the dock even earlier than recommended (15-30 minutes) since there are prime seats on the deck. The food was plentiful and we didn't have to wait at either of the 2-3 bars.


C'était juste excellent, nous ne nous attendions pas du tout à ça. Nous étions seulement 4 groupes sur le bateau, ma conjointe et moi avions pris une bouteille de vin rouge et un plateau de fromage. Le vin était très bon et le fromage très correct. Il y avait un orchestre Jazz live qui jouaient extrêmement bien, le volume était parfait. Le tour en bateau était très romantique, nous étions très éloigné des autres personnes, ce qui nous laissait beaucoup d'intimité et la sensation d'avoir ce bateau pour nous tout seul. C'était début décembre et la température à l'intérieur du bateau était parfaite. Le couché de soleil était très appréciable, la vue sur la ville imprenable. Le tout pour un prix plus que correct. Bref une excellente expérience que je réitérerai avec plaisir dans le futur.
