We are taking a cruise leaving from Boston in late Sept. We are flying in a day in advance of the cruise to see something in the Boston area. We would like to see North Church and possibly Plymouth Plantation or Gloucester. I hear that they both are nice. Can you please help with a hotel that we could use that would be good for this purpose? We are trying to figure out what transportation we could take to get from airport to the hotel and then to the pier. I don't know if there are rental cars near the ship's pier or if there is a hotel that a shuttle service or how to work this out. I tried the cruise line and because we booked our own air, they will not help with transfers, even if we pay for the transfers.
