We flew into Boston the previous evening and spent the night at a hotel near the cruise terminal. After sleeping a few hours and grabbing a quick breakfast we checked out of the hotel, leaving our luggage for later pickup since it was too early to check in for the cruise. We had been to Boston a few times before so we didn't feel the need to travel into downtown Boston again. What we had missed before though was a visit to the local brewery, Harpoon. It's an easy walk from the pier so after taking in a few sights in the nearby area, checking into the cruise and dropping off our luggage, we spent the afternoon sampling a couple of beer flights.
