Default Brilliance - TransAtlantic

We are booked on 8m Sept crossing on Brilliance from Harwich to Boston.
How far is the airport from the docks in Boston - is a taxi reasonable and approx. what time should we schedule our flight?

Logan airport is just on the other side of the Ted Williams tunnel from Black Falcon Pier and should be a short and relatively inexpensive (Boston taxi fares are not especially inexpensive, however) taxi ride away. Norwegian Majesty should also be docking there on the Sunday we arrive but I think that debarkation (assuming there are enough Customs and Immigration inspectors available) should be fairly quick. I would probably not book a flight earlier than 11:00am or noon just to be on the safe side. We live just south of Boston, so we can just get one of our kids to pick us up at the pier. See you on board.

We fly to London from Boston on Labor Day (September 2) and have 6 days there before boarding the ship. Using Marriott Rewards points for our six nights at the London Renaissance Chancery Court, taking a one day escorted tour of Paris via the Eurostar train, and rapidly filling our other days with all of the requisite sightseeing. Figure we can recover during our seven days at sea. ;-)

We've found a car and driver that will take us from our hotel to the ship in Harwich. How are you gettting to the ship?

My friend and I are staying at the Millenium Bailey's hotel. We're only spending the previous day in London, due to time constraints (she's gone back to school full time and working full time). Have either of you been on a transatlantic cruise before? We were wondering how cold it'll get at sea in Sept.
