    Hi guys, who's going to outside the box today?

    Thanks again for organizing, Christine. It was awesome meeting you lovely folks!! By the way, I mentioned to some of you that I am going to this show on Sunday and I'd love for you guys to join me. Cormac Bride (aka Raven Bride) is a local singer-songwriter who also shreds on guitar and piano! I met him when he performed at the Amanda Palmer Salon last month, and I told him I'd try to bring 10 (not 7) friends to his next show cause I missed the last one. He does not have a big presence online--yet, but has performed several times with Amanda Palmer. Http://www.last.fm/search?q=cormac+bride&from=ac
    This will be an intimate performance at a small artspace in Cambridge. Let me know if you want to meet up ;) http://moby.to/atrctz

      Are u serious? They were sold out a day ago!

      1 · July 4, 2013

    The ppl that are driving there wanted to see if I could possibly get a ride home after & not have to deal with the T, I live in Somerville...That would be grrrrrrreat!

    1 · July 3, 2013

    • Deepak J.

      to go to provincetown? may be we can meet at the station and go together

      there is some street parking but last time we did have to park at the hotel. Expensive!!!

      1 · July 4, 2013

    • Christine

      Maybe u will find st parking since it's the 4th & a lot of ppl are out of the city.....OR maybe not since it's near a big boat that a lot of ppl are on, none the less I hope u find CLOSE prking :)

      1 · July 4, 2013

  • Christine

    I will most likely be inside the bar & not in the outside seating area. It's way too hot to sit outside....

    July 4, 2013

  • Che C.

    Get on Provincetown II from 200 Seaport first and thank Christine for holding the group together! No one feels great for those who have had trouble and Christine's probably had the most stress for the collective mess we found ourselves in.

    My speculation is July4thCruises (domain registered June 2010--appear to be same company as OnCruises.com May 2010) is a fly-by-night party douche promoting company.

    2 · July 3, 2013

    • Dawn

      Yessss... we all should definitely thank Christine for holding it together, keeping us updating and basically doing all she can and more for this upcoming July 4th event! :)

      It's not easy!

      I did figure something was up with Oncruises.com/July4thcru­ises.com/WeSell.com but we live and learn, right?!

      July 4, 2013

    • Elisa

      Yup- my tickets actually have "oncruises.com"­ on the bottom part of them.

    This should be be fun. ChristineI just need a contact number just in case when meeting we do not find each other. Call my cell at[masked]

      There's always "meet by the restrooms" haha. I think there might just be ones down on the 3rd deck.

    Anyone heading over from Cambridge Common area?

    July 4, 2013

  • Scott H.

    I told Gilt city that I will write my confirmation# down and bring it because I do not have a printer. They said that should be OK. I also live in Arlington if anyone many be heading in that direction to car pool to avoid the stampede going back on the T lol.

    July 4, 2013

  • Christine

    Here's one for 15. if anyone is still looking for cheap tickets, but it's a voucher and u have to redeem & print out....It's CBS so it seems pretty legit http://offers.cbslocal.com/boston

    July 3, 2013

    • Christine

      Sorry, my printer ran out of ink, go to a Kinkos or something like that

    A former member

    I decided pretty late but made it in time to get the CBS deal--I just hope my friend can still get a ticket--cause I'm pretty sure she hasn't yet. If anyone has an extra, please let me know!

    July 4, 2013

  • Che C.

    Reasons are
    1) New Boston is smaller at 380-person and operates out of
    out of Rowes Wharf by Mass State Lines whereas
    Provincetown II is larger at 1100-person and operates out of Seaport by Bay State Cruise Co
    2) Rowes Wharf--on proper Boston Harbor--is a lot more accessible vs. Seaport--at WTC.
    3) OnCruises shows for New Boston "Sorry, the show is sold out."
    4) OnCruises shows for Provincetown II
    "Due to high demand, cruise tickets are subject to price increases.
    Tickets prices will increase at the date gets closer to the event."
    *jaw* REALLY?!!!! *drops

    1 · July 3, 2013

    • Che C.

      Well, by some opinion, New Boston may be more a party boat with 2-levels; the upper seeming more open deck appearing as large as the larger Province II which is divided into 3-levels--sometimes not inducive to mingling. Rowes Wharf is also more convenient to get to usually, but maybe not with the expected Pops fireworks traffic!

      Yes it does! And it's a great boat with awesome staff! I was just on it for the Rock n' Blues cruise with Adam Ezra a few weeks ago!

    Che hit the nail on the head...It's obviously not ur fault when ppl can't redeem their voucher & having major problems, but it's still stressful none the less..

    IF YOU PURCHASED THRU GILTCITY PLEASE TRY TO REDEEM YOUR VOUCHER FOR TICKET NOW AS IT GOING THRU ON THE WEBSITE! Please note it's going to be on Provinetown II and not New Boston (which was cancelled). If you purchased thru Eventbrite/OnCruises.com you have received an email yesterday about the canceling of New Boston and new tickets for Provincetown II. GiltCity is going thru Oncruises.com I believe.

    I'm working on my refund (from Eventbrite) for the three extra tickets I purchased @ $30 + 4.64 service fee :\ ...the voucher from Giltcity.com ($15) I'll just redeem. BIG CONFUSION EY?! lol

    2 · July 3, 2013

    • Dawn

      YAY!! I have my three ($15) tickets now from Giltcity.com!! They needed to update their voucher codes (done within the past two days) so the system can verify them :)

      Sharon we are good to go!!!!

      Eventbrite.com is refunding the other tickets. Super easy! I will still use them in the future as I do like Eventbrite. Party is still on!! Woohoo!!

      1 · July 3, 2013

    • Christine

      Glad everything worked out..

      1 · July 3, 2013

  • Che C.

    GoldStar relayed the New Boston "cruise cancelled" because OnCruises more than "sold out" New Boston between its own sites and the various discount offer sites and decided to withdraw the least gliterly (or beneficial terms to OnCruises.com) offer from GS and shift the oversold to the Provincetown II with excess inventory. A contradiction is Living Social still had New Boston as available option. It could be LS just hadn't caught up, wasn't notified, or after cancelling GS, OnCruises had some inventory on New Boston, but numbers worked out (or less disorganizd) for OnCruises in any event.

    July 3, 2013

  • Che C.

    I'd go so far as recusing all deal sites. For the volume and vastly different variety of offers they deal with, it makes little business sense to tweek what was handed to them and for them not to enforce a cap if OnCruises had set them up.
    Gilt MAY (from an outside who hasn't ever gone through Gilt's process) not have been redeemable because it stated under "What to know"
    "Redeem on: Thursday, July 4, 2013
    Voucher valid 48-hours after purchase"
    (which without digging deeper into the process means a 2-day waiting period before the voucher can be redeemed electronically or must wait til the 4th when it may be redeemed in person)

    July 3, 2013

  • Deepak J.

    I have not bought the tickets yet. So, where should I buy the tickets from(which site) and where is this happening?

    July 3, 2013

    • Deepak J.

      Yay! got it for 15 bucks. There is no service fee when you buy it from CBS local offer. Thanks Christine.

      July 3, 2013

    • Christine

      I wouldn't know where the voucher code would be??! Never used, just helping peeps out..

      July 3, 2013

    Hi, I am confused. After reading all of the comments, I bought a ticket this afternoon for IndepenDance party Aboard the New Boston on Rowes Wharf, Gate C with Living Social for $15 and I did not get any notification that it is cancelled. Not sure what is happening. Did anyone else who has a ticket from living social get a cancellation notice.

    July 2, 2013

    • Christine

      Oh OK, right u got a voucher so different process..I bought a ticket on Goldstar w/the confimation # on there, I should be OK with just bringing my ph we receipt & conf #right?

      July 3, 2013

    • Che C.

      I imagine so for GS. For LS, it states "Participants must bring their Print At Home Ticket to the event venue." So if someone with a printer can help me... :0)

      July 3, 2013

  • Scott H.

    I have been still waiting for guilty city to update their code so I can purchase my ticket that I tried to do last Mon Evening.I have talked to several people there. They said it would be fixed in a few hours. "That was yesterday".Foreigner. At least I know now if this gets straightened out we will be on the same boat anyway.I told them we should be able to just show our voucher if worse comes to worse. But still waiting. what a joke and scam. Did anybody end up paying full price instead because of going through this?

    July 3, 2013

  • Christine

    What a nightmare!!!! OK, the Rowes Wharf cruise is cancelled and they are moving everyone over to 200 Seaport ave(leaving the same time) on The Provincetown boat..If u purchased through Goldstar u will get a refund and u will need to purchase tick again for the new boat
