If you know anything about Boston, you know that 93 is ALWAYS congested. Our family definitely under estimated the traffic we might encounter on the drive up. We were booked on a 3:30 pm day cruise with the Classic Harbor Lines on the Adirondack III and at 3:00 we still weren't off 93!!
Fortunately, the company was super understanding. They were willing to wait for us (within reason) or reschedule our cruise for another day, if need be. At 3:20 we finally arrived at the parking garage. My daughter and I booked it over to the check-in desk while my husband parked our car. The company kindly checked us in and even waited until 3:35 for my husband to show up.
Aboard the ship, the captain and crew showed all the guests the same wonderful treatment as the staff on land. The captain apologized for the delay and promised extra time out on the water! The crew chatted with all the guests making everyone feel welcome! Water and sodas were complimentary, while beer and wine were $5 each. The crew constantly checked-in with the guests to ensure everyone had what they needed. The captain also made his way around to all the guests engaging each in conversation.
It was the perfect day for a cruise. The wind was blowing in the perfect direction, so we were able to sail to the harbor islands! It was amazing to see all the sights of Boston from the water. We can't wait to bring our friends and family back with us!
