Boston is rich in history. But the city is also a 21st century powerhouse, with world-renowned institutions of higher learning, a robust center of high-technology and biotech; and unrivaled health care facilities. Our city has award-winning restaurants and hotels, museums for every taste and interest, as well as theater, music, shopping and championship sports teams – all of which make Boston a great place to visit on a port-of-call for the day or an extended stay before or after your cruise.
Boston’s Cruise Terminal
Cruiseport Boston’s Black Falcon Cruise Terminal is less than two miles from historic Faneuil Hall and the Freedom Trail, and only three miles from Boston’s Back Bay, which includes trendy Newbury Street and Copley Square shopping areas. The Black Falcon Cruise Terminal recently underwent a multimillion dollar renovation which makes coming and going easier than ever! The cruise terminal is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Boston Logan International Airport.
The 2013 cruise season runs from April into November, with more than 100 vessel calls. Voyages sail north along the New England and Canadian coastlines – a fall favorite for New England’s spectacular foliage – or south to the Caribbean or pink sand beaches of Bermuda.
