Brunch on the Odyssey Boston

12:24 PM

Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day and I was lucky enough to spend it on the Odyssey with Blog and Tweet Boston. The Odyssey is a gorgeous ship that serves buffet style meals while you cruise the Boston Harbor. They were generous enough to allow each of us to bring a guest and Nicco was more than happy to come along. We arrived at Rowes Wharf at noon and after picking up our tickets we boarded the ship.

Our brunch cruise began boarding at noon and departed promptly at 1:00 p.m. After sipping on some champagne we checked out the sprawling buffet. We decided to enjoy breakfast before the cruise departed so we got in line and loaded up our plates. 

Nicco decided on potatoes and veggies with a side of sausage and a croissant while I went for the waffles, french toast, eggs, sausage, and bacon (I swear there's food under that heaping pile of whipped cream). For round two we shared a fruit and cheese plate with smoked salmon.

I found all of their meats to be excellent; the salmon was fresh and flavorful, and the sirloin I tasted was tender and juicy. The potatoes were a hit as well, perfectly seasoned and cooked. After enjoying breakfast we grabbed a glass of wine and headed up to the deck. Their decks have tables set up for two, as well as large comfy deck chairs. And while the seats filled up, the deck was never crowded.

After spending some time in the sun we headed back down to the dining room to try their lunch offerings. By this time it was about 2:15 p.m., so the buffet was a little past it's prime. While everything was still hot and tasted good, the sirloin had been sitting under the heat lamp a little too long and was not as tender or pink as what I had previously tasted. 

The food, while delicious, really isn't the point of the Odyssey though. It's really just a perk. The harbor experience is really what the Odyssey is all about and it's a truly remarkable treat. It was the perfect way to spend the last Sunday of the summer season. 

The two hour cruise flew by, and before we knew it we were back on land. This was one of the best dates Nicco and I have had to date and I would absolutely do it again. 

I would definitely recommend a trip on the Odyssey for a special date or anniversary and to family and friends who visit Boston and are looking for a relaxing way to take in the city. Ticket prices for the Odyssey Boston start at $54 per person and they serve brunch, lunch, and dinner in addition to a full bar.

Nicco and I were invited for a complimentary brunch on the Odyssey by Blog & Tweet Boston. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
