Though tattered ragamuffins with gambling hands are prone to dining with the fishes, it's the esteemed members of land-society who dine atop the fishes. Merge seafaring and supping proclivities with today's Groupon for a cruise of Boston Harbor aboard the Spirit of Boston. Choose between the following options:
- For $56, you get one ticket for a three-hour dinner cruise Monday–Friday (a $102.05 value).
- For $56, you get one ticket for a three-hour dinner cruise on Saturday (a $113.84 value).
All cruises begin boarding at the Seaport World Trade Center between 6 and 7 p.m., check the boarding time when registering your Groupon.
The Spirit of Boston treats up to 600 revelers to a buffet, music, and dancing with the Boston Harbor lights as a backdrop. Step aboard and tour the ship's four elegantly appointed decks, trading handshakes and favorite New Yorker cartoon captions with fellow guests as she casts off from the Seaport World Trade Center. Shortly after being put to sea on the three-hour dinner cruise, cruisers can enjoy a three-course dinner buffet with gourmet salads, entrees, and desserts. Before sweet teeth reap the rewards of a chocolate-mousse truffle or Lemoncello cheesecake, sink them into a nutritious entree brimming with fresh ingredients such as the wild Alaskan salmon bedecked in white wine or slabs of roasted sirloin. As the ship's talented wait staff belts out popular ballads, diners can visit the carving station for a freshly chiseled portion of marinated pork tenderloin cleaved off by a porcine Michelangelo.
Once sea legs grow, take them for a spin on the dance floor, where the DJ communicates song requests to speakers by whispering softly into headphones. For a more reposeful retreat, guests can climb to the ship's top deck with a spacious floating patio that offers breathtaking views of the city.
Though the Spirit of Boston sometimes features a discount online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
