Cruise travel in Boston

Posted On: 09/04/2018

Taking a cruise out of Boston harbor? We have a number of transportation services to get you to and from your cruise ship, safely and right on time for the start of your journey, whether it’s from Boston Harbor, or any other waterways in the area.

Boston is home to many major cruise lines, including European lines such as the Holland America Line, which goes to Maasdam, Rotterdam, Veendam, and Zaandam, and Norwegian Cruise Line, whose fleet includes the Norwegian Dawn and Norwegian Gem. There are, of course, many cruise lines which will take you and your party to Caribbean and tropical destinations, such as Royal Caribbean International’s Serenade of the Seas to Bermuda. These cruise lines among many others have trips all year round.

When packing for your cruise, make sure to bring warm clothing, sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses, swimsuit, and, most importantly, your passport and visa (if applicable). When going to another continent, power adaptors are also a must. If you have allergies or any dietary restrictions, be sure to check ahead to see what kind of food will be available, alert the crew, and bring any medication you may need. It’s also a good idea to see ahead of time if there are any baggage restrictions, and items that are prohibited.

Enjoy your cruise, and be sure to make your reservation ASAP with GO Boston.
