All guests ages 3 and older are required to wear face coverings at all times while on board our vessels, except while dining, unless exempted by the local health authority. Our partners request that each guest face mask fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the guest to remain hands-free.

Guests who do not have a face mask will not be permitted to board the vessel.

    “Actually got upgraded to the odyssey dinner cruise which was great!!! The 2 hours on a Sunday really wasn’t long enough though. By the time we all got served dinner and dessert the boat was back in port. No time to enjoy music and dance!!! Food and views were great!! Boat was short staff since was one of the first cruises of summer. Help they had worked very hard and were good.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi there Sheila,  Woohoo! So exciting to hear that you were upgraded! We can imagine the 2 hours flew by with how much fun you were having. We understand how short-staffing can lead to a bit of a delay, but we are so happy that the crew was awesome and treated you so wonderfully! We would love to get you out on the water again for dancing and fun! Very Best,  Sophia
    “It was really fun! The food was great, the views were awesome and the envirorment was amazing!”
    “Experience was fun. Food did not meet expectations. Alcohol drinks are over-priced. ”
    “We had a good time and the boat is beautiful, but I won't do the Boston Diner Cruise again. (For someone who has never experienced something like this it would be geat for them)The food for the buffet was very good, but there was not much of a selection. All we did was go around in circles in the harbor. We were going to have another person in our party pay seperate and go, but think the cost was not applicable to the what we got. The drinks were very expensive. The service was slow.”
    “Everthing was just fine, we had a lovely time. The food was delicious. The only critique I could give is more information in the confirmation email. I was not aware I had to go to the booking office on the pier to get tickets. I had my confirmation number on my cell phone and only asked about the tickets when I saw other people in line with them. Several other people had the same experince. Thank you for a wonderful night.”
    “event was good--booking mechanics cumbersome”
    “Cruise dinner in the Boston harbor was fantastic!!! Great staff, good food and drinks, great music ... awesome evening! Will have to repeat with family and friends next time... thanks for a great Birthday experience.”
    “I really appreciated your service. I like knowing that you pick the best of the best when representing activities on your site. I would definitely recommend you to others and I bookmarked your site for future use! Thank you!”
    “My husband and I celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary on the Boston Dinner Cruise, and we had an awesome time! The crew were very attentive to our needs, very entertaining, and the overall experience was excellent! We would definitely do it again!”
    “I would recommend the Odyssey dinner cruise over the Spirit of Boston. I've been on both previously and have to say that the quality of food and service, as well as the overall atmosphere on the Odyssey is a lot better than the Spirit of Boston. All of the staff on board were very welcoming and pleasant, but it was hard getting the attention of our server(s) - they seemed to be all over the vessel locating other customers to check on drink orders. I also was a little put out having to wait to settle my tab. I had asked to do so well before the cruise ended as I wanted to just finish the cruise upstairs relaxing with my mother who joined me for the dinner cruise. Instead, we had to return to our seats and wait for our server while watching intoxicated guests dance badly; the server came by with the bill just before we began to dock. Not how I wanted to end the cruise experience, but overall it was just okay.”
    “The cruise was nice, but the value was not appropriate. The cost included a buffet dinner, but no beverages, photos, etc. ”
    “A very nice evening looking out on Boston. Beautiful looking out on the city at night from the water. Table was in a good location for my wife and myself, away from the dance floor so we could talk. Nice to just relax and not worry about issues for a few hours.”
    “The Boston Dinner Cruise was a wonderful experience, the weather, the staff, the crew were all perfect and made the evening an experience we will not forget. I posted our picture on your FB site!”
    “DInner cruise was not was expected. Expected a more low key dinner. There was terrible music blaring and the only place to avoid the music was outside, but you can't eat out there. ”
    “I thought the experience would be more intimate and romantic. Food quality was very poor. Water glasses still had lipstick stains on them. Not elegant at all. ”
    “This was one of the best evenings we have experienced in quite some time. My wife and I were given the choice of sitting outside on the 2nd deck of the boat and were treated to some great waterfront scenario and I got to check in on the Sox game occasionally, best of both worlds. Please continue seating people outside as this is a real bonus! The food was really good with lots of variety and the DJ and entertainment was lots of fun. We were celebrating our daughters wedding from last month and this was an awesome gift from her and our son in law. We will be back and will pass on the great experience to friends and family. Kudos to all for making a great evening for us.”
    “The cruise was overly full,the meal was just OK and the waitstaff forgot about us. We had to get our own water,butter, dessert. They put us at a table in the middle of the isle and we were bumped so much that they moved us to an empty table way in the front of the ship and then promptly forgot we were there. In all fairness, there was a large convention on board and several birthday parties. I wish they had told me, I could have rebooked for another time. I do,not recommend this except for a large croud of people. for individual couples , weekdays would be the best ”
