Cruiseport Boston Undergoes Upgrades

The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) has announced that Cruiseport Boston’s Black Falcon Cruise Terminal will undergo a $3 million upgrade to its passenger facilities. The project will improve upon and brighten up the terminal's overall appearance and enhance the cruise passenger experience.

"The new enhancements will provide more aesthetically-pleasing and comfortable surroundings," said Thomas J. Kinton, Jr., Massport’s CEO and  executive director

Proposed project enhancements will replace and renovate existing finishes, and include painting the interior and exterior with a white on gray palette, vibrant accents, new ceilings, flooring and carpeting, and colorful super graphics that showcase Boston as a destination. Additional improvements include expansion of the mezzanine floor area for passenger check-in, new light fixtures, way finding signage, and the possible construction of additional public restrooms and a passenger elevator at the east end of the terminal.

"As the exclusive cruise line sailing from Boston to Bermuda for the next 10 years, we are pleased to hear about the planned renovations," said Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line’s executive vice president of global sales and passenger services. "Revitalizing the facilities at Cruiseport Boston will enrich the overall cruise experience of our guests embarking on one of our Freestyle Cruises vacations to Bermuda, along with our Canada & New England sailings."

Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and be completed by the end of the year.
