Cruiseport Boston Renovation Project
Cruiseport Boston recently got an $11M makeover including new passenger check-in, screening, and boarding area within the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal to improve passenger comfort, increase terminal efficiency and position Cruiseport Boston for continued growth.

Massport retained Martin Associates to measure the local and regional economic impacts generated by maritime activity at the MASSPORT owned public and private marine terminals within the Boston Harbor, including economic impacts generated by cargo activity, the fish/seafood processing operations as well as harbor sightseeing tours and cruise activity. Economic impacts generated at public facilities include marine cargo that crosses the piers owned by MASSPORT including activity at the Conley Container Terminal and Autoport as well as by the cement discharged over MASSPORT docks for a private cement operation adjacent to the dock.
