    Fun and Unique wedding venue!!

    We had so much fun on the Spirit of Boston for our wedding reception in September 2021. The boat was a beautiful, unique, and fun venue which was an amazing place to have a wedding in the heart of Boston! All our our guests absolutely loved the experience and it was a great way to view the beautiful Boston harbor and skyline for our guests that were visiting Boston for the first time! Aria was our coordinator and did a great job answering all of our questions and helping bring our wedding day to life without a hitch! We had the top shelf liquor package and also added the meat carving station, both of which were a huge hit for our guests. The boat, both inside and outside resulted in some amazing pictures and I especially loved all the pictures from the upstairs down onto the dance floor! An added bonus is that the Spirit of Boston was much more reasonably priced relative to a lot of the other hotels and venues in the central Boston and Boston harbor area. We would highly recommend booking the spirit of Boston for anyone looking for a wedding or party venue! It’s a great venue for those that love water/boats, want to have beautiful views of Boston, and want to provide a unique and fun experience! Our wedding guests are still raving about it months later!

    City Cruises - Boston's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! It was our pleasure to host your wedding onboard the Spirit of Boston. Very best wishes!

    Such an unforgettable Night

    It was one of the best decisions we made!. Abigail was a breeze to work with, she is very detailed oriented and we knew all the way we were in good hands. Absolutely loved our venue, the ceremony at the deck, and the guest can't stop saying marvelous words of our night at the Elite Yatch.
