The proposed Boston-Halifax overnight cruise ferry is NOT yet in service, and
reservations cannot be booked.
 Due to economic conditions and the difficulty of gathering
resources, a good estimate for the start of service is not possible.  We continue to seek the right
arrangements, ship, and the right partners.  These activities range from chartering a ship with bridge
and engine room crews to purchasing the ferry in a joint venture partnership with the ship owner.  
There are many possibilities.  It is critical to the long term success of the venture that the team
obtain the right vessel on the right financial terms.
Service may be possible by 2013.
The overnight ferry will depart each port in the afternoon and arrive in the morning at the other,
with layover in either port during the day.  This will give the traveler a sense of a "floating motel"
in which much of the trip can be done while sleeping.  Existing travel services often require hotel
links on either or both ends, consuming extra travel time and additional cost.  Should you want to
bring your own car, ship layover will also allow vehicles to drive onto the waiting ship, instead of
queuing up in assembly parking areas.  Leaving the ship will also be less frantic due to on-board
clearances and convenient parking layout.  

The initial service will make 3 round trips per week from each port.  The ship will be passenger
friendly and include a variety of food services, conference centers, stores, customs and
immigration clearing, controlled gambling and shopping.  The amenities will be aimed at traveler
ease, convenience and transportation service.
