“My husband and I recently ventured to Nantucket for the day to enjoy its beauty. The Hy-Line cruise to Nantucket comes highly recommended for many reasons…the friendly service, amenities, the options of staying inside the ship in the air conditioning or riding outdoors on the deck and enjoy the scenery. Although we didn’t bring along any luggage, we saw the speed of the staff to unload the ship of its passengers belongings; bikes and suitcases were lined up on the pier in a matter of  minutes, quite impressive to watch! Overall a wonderful experience!”
