I honestly don't know how the airport can handle the load for a 5,000 passenger ship..

It would be amazing for hotels on front street for before and after stayovers. Would help revitalize the area.

It would be a boon to the whole economy, for sure. As I said, I just don't know how the airport could handle it though.

I don't see the airport handling this until it is totally completed and completion isn't within the time frame they are discussing.

This would be great, for potential short stay visitors, for the new hotel being built in Beacon Hill. It's all coming together.
