"Experience was fun. Food did not meet expectations. Alcohol drinks are over-priced. "
"We had a good time and the boat is beautiful, but I won't do the Boston Diner Cruise again. (For someone who has never experienced something like this it would be geat for them)The food for the buffet was very good, but there was not much of a selection. All we did was go around in circles in the harbor. We were going to have another person in our party pay seperate and go, but think the cost was not applicable to the what we got. The drinks were very expensive. The service was slow."
"Everthing was just fine, we had a lovely time. The food was delicious. The only critique I could give is more information in the confirmation email. I was not aware I had to go to the booking office on the pier to get tickets. I had my confirmation number on my cell phone and only asked about the tickets when I saw other people in line with them. Several other people had the same experince. Thank you for a wonderful night."
