The staff were very polite, the narrator was interesting and fun to listen to. The view was absolutely stunning. My boyfriend and I took a day trip to Boston and we ended it with the boat and we had a blast. Pro tip, right before they dock wait at the door you came in at to be the first one off. 10/10 would do it again

Customer service lacking

The cruise was great. The narrator was informative and funny. However, Viator did not provide good customer service prior to the cruise. I sought basic information like where does the cruise depart? I tried to ask online but my question did not fit the frequently asked questions.
