My sister and I booked this cruise as part of our holiday to NYC. The booking was easy to make and communication updates were excellent. We were met by a lovely, friendly employee when we arrived and checking in was easy. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed as to where we were seated for lunch on the lower deck, however. The cruise wasn’t full, yet we were seated away from the window, next to the queuing customers at the buffet and I was also seated next to a support pole so that, ultimately, I was left feeling very crushed and hemmed in when this was absolutely avoidable and unnecessary. There were many empty tables next to windows, so I was bemused as to why I was crushed up against queuing g customers? Nevertheless, the buffet lunch was high quality and there was a great selection to suit everyone’s tastes/ dietary requirements. It’s worth noting however that the food quickly ran out and so we and other customers were not afforded the same choice. When we were seated, half the buffet had gone and serving dishes were totally empty. That’s a pity. The cruise itself was excellent. The cruise takes you very close to the Statue of Liberty and the skyline is superb. Great views of Brooklyn Bridge too. Ample and comfortable seating was available and the bar service was also very good. The DJ and music were superb too. This is actually a 5 star cruise that offers value for money. I couldn’t give it 5 stars because of where we were seated for lunch and food running out. I would still have no hesitation recommending this experience though as the staff were helpful and friendly and the sights made up for the wee weaknesses relating to the lunch.


I liked the way they took care of us by serving us.me and my girl friend were very happy and enjoyed the day.


Food was delicious, service was great, the sailing experience was enjoyable and met wonderful people.


This was a nice simple cruise to the Statue of Liberty and back. Buffet lunch was simple but good and there was a live DJ with small dance floor. Dancing not your thing? That's cool, just head up to the top of the boat to the 3rd floor deck. There you will find high and low chairs and tables. They have a few oversized games for kids as well. If you're not looking for a traditional tour and just want to enjoy the water and see lady Liberty up close then this cruise may be what you're looking for.


From start to finish this was an easy-going Saturday afternoon, From the moment we entered this cruise boat., We were welcomed by a smiling professional staff who told us exactly what was going to happen during our two hour cruise. We were well prepared! As we left the dock We were informed of some of the historical sites along the waterfront. The buffet was fresh and hearty. The salmon was quite flavorful, the chicken tender, the salad bar and desserts scrumptious.. Our server was very friendly And brought our beverages promptly. The music started, and there was no way we could remain in our seats. The DJ was awesome and soon we were working off the lunch we just ate! before we knew it, we were returning to the dock after a well spent two hour tour on the Hudson


The Cruise was good and the staff were friendly. The music and entertainment was great but the food was not so good.


The weather was cold but the boat was relaxing and fun. The food was ok, I am wish they had more variety of the meals. Overall good experience


It was a great experience.The only thing is that more waitress will be better as they were just a few and my advice is for them to be more attentive with the people that they are assigned to and also provide utensils if needed. I would go again and recommend it, I just wish It was cheaper.


The experience was excellent the view with the tour guide and staff was fantastic and very friendly.


Generous buffet with great food. Family-friendly DJ. Boat is largely enclosed, so you're protected from wind & weather. Can still get out in the open air in the bow (front). Had a baby with stroller. Needed to get up stairs, but wasn't hard.
