Take to the water and get into the holiday spirit by singing some holiday ballads the way the Irish do, with a beer in hand and a whiskey or two. It’s the holidays and in this 1920s-styled motor yacht, Northern Lights, decked out with festive décor and the sound of the holidays in the air, this unique tour is sure to put you in a merry spirit. Get stunning panoramic views of the Boston skyline and iconic waterfront sites such as Bunker Hill Monument, USS Constitution and the Marriott Custom House Tower. Snuggle up on the lounge furniture with a hot cup of cocoa or grab a seat at one of the four tops. Snacks and tasty holiday adult beverages are also available on this Irish Christmas Carol Cruise. Take a cruise with friends to celebrate the season or as a fun way for two people to start the night together. Enjoy song in climate-controlled cabins (heating and air-conditioning). This cruise will take place on Northern Lights, a 115-foot motor vessel stylized after a 1920s New England yacht. The cruise will last 1.5-hours and boarding will begin 15 minutes prior to departure. Festive holiday music will be played throughout the cruise.

Wonderful time! Highly recommend

I booked this trip one a visit to my niece who had just moved to Boston. There was 4 of us and we all had a wonderful time. The Irish band, Slainte was AMAZING! Drinks were holiday oriented and delicious. We had a roomy table to ourselves. The views were fantastic. Great time was had by all!
