The lunch buffet will soon begin, and you can take as little or as much as you'd like from the all-you-can-eat buffet! For an extra special lunch, upgrade to the lobster option (seasonal). While you dine, enjoy a narrated look at Boston's breathtaking skyline from the panoramic windows.

    After you eat, head to the top deck - the largest outdoor patio deck in town - to catch a breath of fresh air and an amazing view. Or, rock 'til you dock while the DJ plays a variety of music, from line dances to Top 40 hits.

    During your cruise, pass by the World Trade Center, the financial hub of Boston. See where the Boston Tea Party took place in 1773, when rebels disguised as Indians dumped tea into the harbor to protest British taxes. Pass by the location of the Boston Massacre, which is now a simple circle of cobblestones that marks the site where five American colonists were killed by British soldiers in 1770. The brutality of this incident helped spark the anti-British rage that ultimately led to the American Revolution.
