It was the best cruise I’ve ever been on. (Also, the only)

This cruise is a must if you are a newbie in New York. We did it the afternoon after landing in New York and it was perfect, we took the 7 o’clock one which was perfect because of the heat and the sunset was beautiful. I recommend this to people I know.

Well worth it see city from outside and all lit!

Was very apprehensive didn’t want to go w tons of people but boat is huge we stood to get best views and it was fabulous! I do think it could have been 30 minutes shorter or so. Loved it

It was a great cruise for my wife and I. Do not sit towards the front

It was a great cruise for my wife and I. Do not sit towards the front. Outside unless you want people to stand in front of you and block your view. I recommend sitting 5 to 6 rows back.

The guide was excellent and the cruise was smooth and very informative

I didn’t like the long line when we arrived. If I have e vouchers, there should be a kiosk to scan and go through. We should not have to join a line to get physical tickets.

Excellent trip. Captain was very informative.

Wonderful experience. A must do! Only issue was even though you download the mobile ticket, you still have to stand in line to get a paper ticket.
