Cruiseport Boston’s Black Falcon Terminal
In 2010, the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), which owns and operates Cruiseport Boston, invested $11 million to renovate its main terminal, known as Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. 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 terminal is also conveniently located just 10 minutes from Boston Logan International Airport.
The 2014 cruise season runs from April into November, with 115 vessel calls. Voyages sail north along the Canada/New England coastline – a fall favorite for New England’s spectacular foliage – or south to the Caribbean or pink sand beaches of Bermuda.
