      • nice views
        good food

      • very disappointed friends had booked direct to be with us were not allowed on .The food was sent back 3 times cold fish !!Although seeing statue of liberty lit up was a bonus at accost !!!

      • Amazing trip with great band and excellent food. Great staff too. Highlight was the sight of Manhattan and Statue of Liberty at night - truly beautiful. Brilliant night and very enjoyable experience - Would definitely recommend.

      • This dinner cruise was amazing. If you come to New York this should definitely be on your to do list. Boat was very well appointed. Music was good. Food was excellent. Wait staff very attentive. The view of Statue of Liberty and New York skyline at night was AMAZING, VERY BEAUTIFUL. I would definitely do this dinner cruise again.

      • This was a wonderful experience with great food and live band .would recommend

      • I do not normally write reviews following trips but in this instance I have to share my thoughts.

        If you enjoy good food, fantastic views, good music and excellent service then this trip is for you.
        On arrival the boat is large and spacious, the welcoming staff are excellent and provide an introduction to you table waiter for the evening. We had the VIP package so a superb window table, great selection of cocktails, drinks and wines. The food was excellent, it was well presented, was served hot and cooked to perfection, at no time did we feel rushed or pressured to get through the meal. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly but not a bit intrusive, they made the evening feel very special. This dinner cruise was far superior to our experiance of similar trips in other countries.
        The views, well what more can be said than New York at night, from the river, outstanding. To be taken close to some of the most recognisable New York views was amazing. The ability to stand outside on deck was an additional plus, allowing plenty of opportunities for photographs and watching the iconic New York sights pass by. The live band and singer were very good, not intrusive and not so loud as to stop conversation.
        Once on board I could find no fault at all. However prior to boarding the experience would have been much better if there had been more direction signs within the pier buildings, specific to this cruise and clearer instructions about the requirement to register at the tiny office to obtain boarding tickets. We and a number of other guests waited to board, only to be told when presenting our online reservation documents, of the need to register at the office across the other side of the pier, not a major problem, but more of an annoyance having stood around waiting to board.

        But dont let that small inconvenience put you of this cruise, it was excellent, good value and will remain not only a highlight of our time in New York, but one of the best trips we have ever had. A very big Thank you to all the crewe and staff, you gave us a very special night that will remain with us forever.

      • The boat ride was very smooth thanks to the captain. We were very disappointed we were unable to see the Statue of Liberty and little else of the sky line due to the fog. We made the best of it fabulous Music dancing all night. Food was good service exceptional.Bartender couldn and #39;t make a margarita

      • This trip is excellent and I would recommend it. Food was good, service was first class and the views are completely spectacular. The only thing that stopped me giving a 5 star rating was that the toilets were not really adequate on the boat. They weren't filthy but needed a bit of an overhaul. A shame really because the rest of the boat was quite well appointed.
        We did a similar trip in Paris which was a bit classier but then that was Paris and this is New York and the vibe is bound to be different.
        On the whole very pleased and would definitely recommend it.

      • It was amazing how quickly the three hours went. The cruise was great it gave you wonderful views of the Manhattan Skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and of course the Statue of Liberty. The food was good and the entertainment and the waiter we had were excellent. Give yourself a treat it is well worth it

      • Well worth the price, good food, good entertainment and good scenery.
