On Thursday, May 4th, the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) will host a dedication ceremony for The Flynn Cruiseport Boston at The Black Falcon Terminal to officially kickoff the 2017 cruise season. Governor Charlie Baker signed legislation renaming the Cruiseport Boston in honor of Raymond L. Flynn, former Mayor of Boston and United States Ambassador to the Holy See.
The event will also celebrate the official kickoff of the 2017 cruise season, which runs from April into November. This season will bring over 150 vessel calls to the Flynn Cruiseport – up 30% from last season – as Boston becomes a bigger base for cruising.
Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas – the largest cruise ship to sail into Boston Harbor – will be docked at the Flynn Cruiseport during the event.
