The ship leaves from Boston, so for those with nice luggage leave it at home. Once we boarded the ship my wife and I watched the luggage handling from above, it was comical. We saw several pieces of luggage fall of the carts and get pushed around the pier, one would think some one would pick them up, not till the loading was completed. Black Falcon Terminal needs to be redesigned to be more efficient and passenger friendly, they are trying but it is not enough.
The only plus is that you can park your car 2 blocks away, pay less than $120 for the week and walk off with your luggage to get your car on the final day.
