  • "Tasked with organizing a great "workation"-- two hours of social interaction with work colleagues on a limited budget-- seemed an impossible task. Who knew but twenty minutes and short money later and I've booked an entire ship! We all had so much FUN! And I was the talk of the cooler the next day: HERO was the word of the day."

  • "Me and the buddies were stoked; we found a coupon on Groupon for 'craft beer tasting' and thought: Why not? Enjoy a little pre-game before dinner with the girlfriend. Holy cow - we had a blast! 90 minutes of chilling along the rail, enjoying a cigar and cold beer with my buddies. MBL rocks!"

  • "Harbor tour- harbor snore, I thought. Shows how little I know: BEST twenty bucks I spent all summer. I didn't realize it would be narrated! I learned a lot about Boston's beautiful harbor and the historic landmarks that I'm sure I could have read in Wikipedia, but not while relaxing topside with a cool beverage in my hand!"

  • "Run, don't walk to Mass Bay Lines for your next outing: Cheap, provocative, and memorable. Every start-up CEO's dream for pulling the team together within walking distance of the Seaport."
