Where better to start with our “booze cruise” list than on Rowes Wharf? Mass Bay Lines offers traditional booze cruise options amongst its fairly priced rates. The cruises often have live music from a band or DJ as an added bonus. Drink options at the bar are, naturally, fairly pricey here on the ship, but the view of Southie harbor as the sun sets is worth the entry fee, for sure.
