The food was excellent, the journey through the river was smooth and relaxing. The waitress was very pleasant and welcoming. However, the DJ was terrible, he never played dancing music only at the end of the cruise!!! My husband and I love to dance so when we saw that music and dancing was part of the package we was on board, only to be disappointed by boring music and no indication of the dance floor coming to life. Here’s a tip, coffee and tea must be served with the starters, it’s important to have a warm beverage to prepare the stomach for heavy food.
Nice to see a part of Manhattan and NJ and Brooklyn lights, bridges from a different angle. If it was closer to 2 hours instead of 3 it would have rated higher but that's not a complaint, just a suggestion. 3 hours was just too long, food was pretty good not disappointing but not astonishing by any means and they had our reservation wrong when we boarded which was VIP with champagne and window seat and it took awhile to sort that which Gabriel the manager did. The staff was great Gabriel and Samuel, Hernando, etc and the DJ played good music and it was a posh looking room on the boat which was a real highlight.
The views of Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty were great, and sitting in a nice floating room was the highlight along with the lovely staff.
Other than when we got out at 10pm and in late November it's pitch black outside and there were no taxis in the mythical taxi rank at the end of the docks of Pier 40, we had to go onto the street to flat down on taxi in what probably wasn't the most salubrious part of town for an older well-dressed couple to be hailing a taxi late at night on a Friday night.
We would imagine that in warmer months there would be a lot more people and it would be very lively and even more enjoyable.
No regrets and I would definitely recommend it for something different especially because it's more intimate.
Love the boat, and the beautiful evening cruise. Very smooth ride, great sights including the lighted city skyline at night and the Statue of Liberty. Music, drinks, and dancing. Food good, but this is more about the cruise. Window seat enjoyable when eating, but the best photos will be from the deck outside or up top.
From the moment we verified our reservation for the 3 hour light dinner cruise. everything was outstanding. The cruise, food, service and the music DJ was all worth the price. I would definitely use this tour again. I could have written a 3 page review, but I wanted to inform not bore. Just Do It!
This is the third time I have taken this tour when bringing family member to NYC for their first time. On January 22, dinner cruise, it was terrible! The dining room was so hot we could not stay at our table for longer than 10 minutes without having to go outside to cool off. The music was the main thing that made our evening miserable. It was so loud we could not carry on a conversation. DJ played the same music all night and was so focused on a group of 5 single females that he ignored the remaining guest on the cruise. This made for a miserable evening for our family of 5. Would not recommend this cruise!!
This was a celebration evening for my daughter's birthday and it didn't disappoint. From the canapé on entry to the boat through to the excellent meal, friendly servers and the dancing afterwards to the DJ on board, the whole evening was excellent. We paid extra for a window seat and champagne and it really was worth it for a special occasion. I would also add that I booked all three trips we took in New York with Viators from home in England and everything went very smoothly and when I had to phone their London office to inquire about something, everyone I spoke to was really helpful and friendly. Viators was recommended to us by a friend and we have recommended it to others in our turn.
Great ambiance and great scenery for pictures once you get outside. Pics through the windows are not as good. Good food, subpar service, nice dance floor and DJ with good music.
It was a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday. Great way to see the light of New York . The meal was a delicious 3 course meal. Seeing the Statue of Liberty as the sun set behind it was a great highlight of the tour.
My husband took me on this amazing evening as a surprise for my birthday! It was a truly wonderful evening but was worrying at the beginning as they didn't have our reservation at all, even though my husband and the hotel had both called before hand to confirm our booking. This was sorted out and we had a lovely table by the window but to make the evening extra special Melvin was our server who deserves a medal!! He made our evening wonderful and he took lots of photos of us in front of the most incredible back drop of Manhattan! Many thanks Melvin, you're a complete star !!! If you do book this please make sure you keep on calling them to confirm your booking as they don't seem particularly well organised. I still rate this as 5 stars though as it was a really amazing evening.
Great food, great music, great trip! Even with weather less than perfect...it was wonderful!
We enjoyed it very much. The boat was clean the food was very good and the music was also very enjoyable as was the service. Thank you for a great night out Mr. and Mrs. Ricci
This tour was great. Pier 40 dock easy to find, nice welcome and looked after thoroughly throughout the evening. The yacht was amazing, free to wander and take photos and the sites were beautiful. We upgraded to a window seat with bubbly and it was well worth it.
Great trip. Cruise was excellent, albeit we seemed to be waiting a long time before we actually departed from the quay side.Food was OK, service was pretty decent, and the entertainment was also very good. The views of the Manhattan sky line from the Hudson river though were unforgettable, and for that alone it was a trip well worth doing.
