Why You'll Love an Odyssey Cruise

"This Odyssey dinner cruise has been the best evening of our entire Boston visit...it will be the first thing we do when we come here again."

                  ~ Sophie and Jean-Luc, visitors from France

View from observation deck of Odyssey cruise ship leaving Boston HarborAn Odyssey dinner cruise is a wonderful addition to your itinerary if you're planning a visit to Boston. 

Not only do you get an outstanding 2- or 3-hour Boston Harbor sightseeing tour, but you'll also enjoy an excellent dinner - all for about the same price you'd pay for a meal in a nice restaurant. 

It's a sweet deal - you're basically getting the cruise for free.

Like her sister ship Spirit of Boston, Odyssey offers a variety of evening cruises, as well as brunch or lunch cruises on most days. 

Because all dining areas are enclosed and climate-controlled, Odyssey (and Spirit of Boston) operates year-round, summer and winter.  

Around major holidays such as Valentine's Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year, look for festive holiday cruises, as well as special occasion and theme cruises at other times of the year.


Odyssey Dinner Options

Soon after the ship leaves the wharf, you'll be seated for dinner in one of the three spacious climate-controlled areas. 

Chefs prepare the meals in an on-board kitchen, with results that rival many top Boston restaurants. 

The menu format and selections for each course vary a bit depending on which night you choose for your cruise.  Look at the options before you book, if the number of courses and choices matter to you.

While the food and attentive service are outstanding, the ambiance plus the panorama of fascinating views outside the windows take center stage. 

Odyssey's Boston Harbor Tour Route

Although Odyssey's exact route will vary based on the length of the tour as well as Harbor traffic conditions, you'll typically cruise along the Boston shoreline past the North End, Charlestown, the South Boston Waterfront and Castle Island.

At this point, you'll begin to notice individual islands.  You'll typically pass by Georges Island and Little Brewster Island, home to Boston Light, one of the country's oldest lighthouses.
