On July 4, the world’s oldest commissioned warship, the USS Constitution, will make its annual voyage through Boston Harbor. And fans of naval history can get a close-up view of the event.

Boston Harbor Cruises is offering cruises that will give passengers a view from the water as the Constitution voyages out to Castle Island in South Boston to fire a 21-gun salute before returning to her berth in Charlestown.

Not only do passengers get to witness history up close, they also get to partake in an amazing lunch menu, with narration provided by an expert historian from the USS Constitution Museum, and musical accompaniment from the Middlesex Fife and Drum Corps.
