The Official USS Constitution Museum Turn Around Luncheon Cruise
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.
One reminder: be sure to arrive early. Both vessels must depart from their respective
docks at 10:30 AM sharp.
