Please help--dinner cruise for mom's birthday?

My mom is going to Cape Cod (Hyannis) for her birthday, and we'd like to get her a dinner cruise. I'm having no luck searching for companies. Can you please help me? She's going in October--too late?? Any recommendations?

Dear klcrooks,

You might try World Yacht at worldyacht.com or 212-630-8100. You might also try "Great Point" which sails to Nantucket until October 28. It is a ferry with continental breakfast in the AM and cheese tray in PM. It is first class and there are great restaurants like "Que Sera, Sera" on Nantucket. You call the Chamber of Commerce of Hyannis - 508-228-1700. There is also the "Grey Lady" of Hy Line Cruises. It is a high speed ferry that operates year around. It is $62 for an adult round trip and is more expensive than "Great Point" which is $45. You can check these all out with the Chamber of Commerce.

Sincerely,

Hi there, Can't think of an ocean dinner cruise for you. Would you like to consider a 'land' cruise? People report enjoying the Cape Cod Dinner Train. 888-797-7245. capetrain.com. It operates through Dec. If you are interested in this let me know as there are some details that I may be able to get for you from another poster on this forum. Dinners are about $60 pp with drinks and tips extra. White linen, candlelight, crystal etc. But there are plenty of excellent Cape restaurants too and, considering the earlier sunsets, there may not be too much to see in the dark. Maybe you can get some more input from the Dinner Train people (like they switch to lunch in Oct???) Good luck. If you elect to try a restaurant instead you'll have plenty of wonderful choices. Good luck Nebraska.
