Boston is rich in history. Yet the city is also a 21st century powerhouse, with world-renowned institutions of higher learning, a robust center of high-technology and biotechnology, 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.
In 2010, the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), which owns and operates Cruiseport Boston, invested $11 million to renovate its main terminal, also known as Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. Cruiseport Boston 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 2016 cruise season runs from April into November, with 117 vessel calls. Voyages sail north along the Canada/New England coastline – a fall favorite for New England’s spectacular foliage – or south to the pink sand beaches of Bermuda or the Caribbean.
