For all you New England cruise fans, the season kicks off today with a Boston port of call visit by the ocean liner Princess Danae, and will switch into full gear in late May when Hub-based ships will begin shoving off from the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal to Bermuda and destinations around the region and Canada. This is a big year for the Boston terminal as it marks its 25th anniversary as a port for cruises. In 1986, it saw just 13 ship visits; this year will see 106. Cast off.
