We booked this dinner cruise for our 40th anniversary.through Viator. We came to Boston from Texas and this was to be the grand finale of our trip. we took a taxi from the hotel on Oct. 4th and got there to check in at 6:30 with our ticket in hand only to be told that the ship was booked for a private party and there was not another one available for that evening. This was booked many weeks in advance and charged to our credit card the day after booking. The Spirit of Boston crew said this 3rd party company does this all the time. The Spirit of Boston crew said in the future to book only direct with them and they jumped through hoops trying to get us on something and they did get us a ride on a water taxi so we could see Boston Harbor at night, which we paid for along with the taxi to the harbor. I would not recommend using Viator for anything!

We did the dinner cruise hoping to see some of Boston Harbor. We did not take into account the fact that it essentially gets dark 2 hours sooner on the East Coast as opposed to where we live on the Gulf Coast. So, it was pitch black when we boarded the ship. The food was good and the employees friendly and professional. Things ran quite well and everyone knew their rolls and timing. Departure and docking was smooth. One of the things that we learned was that they had different seating assignments based on your willingness to pay upgrades. We asked for a window seat and were told that our ticket was not for window seating. It was not apparent to me when I made the reservation on Viator that this would be the case. I had assumed it was general admission because I only saw 1 reservation admission price for this cruise. After returning home, I went directly to the Spirit of Boston web site and saw that there were obviously different tiers of pricing on their site. The cruise ship was nice, as it has been recently renovated. It had 3 decks of seating and an upper, observation deck. We boarded and asked if we could go up to the 3rd deck. Again, for a better harbor view. We were told we could and did so. We got a drink and got seated. After a few minutes a supervisor came and told us that the deck we were on was reserved for a group. There had been several busses disinterring guest when we arrived and some of them were apparently prepaid charters for the cruise. We were escorted to the lower, 1st deck. I explained that we had asked if we could go up and were told we could. The supervisor replied that the crew member should have distinguished whether we were in the private party group before doing so. Politely handled, but could have been avoided.

Viator apparently forgot to book...
Melinda M

Viator apparently forgot to book the dinner with the Spirit of Boston. Thank goodness I had made a copy of the booking with date and all the information sent to me via Viator. It did NOT have a confirmation number, but showed I did pay. The Spirit of Boston said it was not their vault as Viator did not book it. And the shipped was completely booked and had no extra seats! But thank goodness they were kind enough to place us on another of their dinner cruises that evening. It was not what I had wanted or booked but as we just had flown in that afternoon and planned dinner on the Spirit of Boston we were tired and hungry. And we could not rebook for another date as we were there for only that weekend. Viator goofed big time!! But the owners of Spirit of Boston did work and get us on another dinner cruise that evening within the hour. Not the food we had planned on but at least they work to fix the royal goof by Viator. We did not have the sunset dinner cruise with a buffet but a plate dinner after sunset.

This was a brilliant night out. Delicious choice of meal for our dinner followed by a great disco where we were never off the dance floor. They served our drinks in special souvenir glasses and there was a promise of one to take home at the end of the evening but it didn't materialise. Would've been a nice touch had they kept that promise. Great views of the Boston skyline from the water. Not a lot of cruising as the boat appeared to be stationary once we had left the dock. But a great evening was had by us all.
