If you're a history buff (and even if you're not) this is the one cruise of the summer you do not want to miss out on. And what better day to celebrate the world's oldest commissioned warship than July 4th!
USS Constitution has been making this voyage annually on July 4th since the 1950s as a reminder of those who served, sacrificed and fought for our independence.
Watching her set sail is a sight to behold as the ship voyages out to Castle Island in South Boston to fire a 21-gun salute before returning to her berth in Charlestown.
Not only do you get to witness history up close on board our two finest vessels, the Majesty and Frederick L. Nolan, Jr., you also get to partake in an amazing lunch menu, with narration provided by an expert historian from the USS Constitution Museum, and musical accompaniment from the Middlesex Fife and Drum Corps. Hey, it's the Fourth of July, and we're pulling out all the fireworks.
Furl a sail, fire a cannon, scramble from your hammock under the roar of enemy fire. Located just yards from "Old Ironsides", at the USS Constitution Museum you don't just learn about history - you experience it. Hands-on exhibits, gallery programs and an incomparable collection guide guests of all ages on a journey through more than 200 years of our nation's most extraordinary stories.
