    This was an experience of a life time from the moment we boarded the boat to the end of the cruise. As a V.I.P. Guest we were seated by the huge glass window with a Clear full view Of all the sights all cozie and warm which was brilliant as it was below freezing outside.The service, the food, the sights and most of all the time we spent around the Statue of Liberty was amazing. I would Highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to New York.

    My boyfriend planned our proposal dinner and everything was perfect! The food was delicious, the table was set up with roses, champagne and flutes. I had no idea what was coming, the manager and crew were in on it. My now fiancé got nervous and proposed too soon! lol but nevertheless the manager still followed through with what was planned. The boat docked in front of the Brooklyn bridge (was in the evening) and we went to the captain's deck where their photographer met us to take photos. All in all it was an unforgettable day and proposal. From the manager to our server thank you for making that night amazing!

    Long Wait Check in process: Printed the on-line boarding pass and stood in line for 30 minutes only to find out I had to go stand in another line at the booth to get actual tickets.
    Online booking of VIP dinner: I was able to book and pay for the VIP Dinner cruise then 1 day later received a cancelation email. Called customer service, on hold for 20 minutes to find out that VIP was not available even though the website allowed me to book and pay for the VIP package.
    Overall: The booking and check-in was very poor.
    Food: Lobster bisque not hot. Short Ribs were too sweet. Mashed potatoes were great. Dessert was good. Service was slow at times but good overall.
    Hope this information helps you in improving the process to make for a great experience from booking to departure.

    This cruise is a must do if visiting NY. We were lucky we had a beautiful sunny evening. The boat is like a large conservatory so you don’t miss any views even while your eating. In-between courses you can walk out on deck for great views of Manhattan and Statue of Liberty. Food and drink were great and we were looked after from setting aboard. Entertainment was pretty good too.

    We had a girl’s trip planned with my family for the weekend. Everyone was really nice and the views from the boat were amazing. We especially loved the love music. Food was fantastic!

  • 03-Jul-2019

    Took the crew 21/2 hours to produce any food which was just passable considering the price. We were told that they were short staffed when we inquired why it took so long. They were serving desert to some but not us after we docked after 3 hours. We were glad to get away.
    The city views and the entertainment were great.
