It was good. You've seen everything. But we got there 30 minutes before the start time and the ship was almost full. So not a good place. We made the best of it. Next time I would go earlier. But what we didn't like was that you weren't even allowed to take your own drinks with you. It was really hot and we had to finish the drinks before we were allowed on board. I found that cheeky. They sell drinks on board so you probably aren't allowed to bring any in. not ok Otherwise everything was good.

It was so awesome... i loved it..the boat ride and the explanation was great.. maybe need more speakers in the front and the back so people can continue to hear the history being orated i couldn't hear very well in the very front or the very back of the boat otherwise pretty excellent.

I could not have had a better experience. For some reason the ticket agent was having a hard time with her computer system but she hung in there and was very apologetic. And I got my ticket. Then I go to put it in my purse and I promptly leave my phone on one of the stone benches in front of the boat. I get to the boat and realize I lost my phone, and thankfully a chaperone from another group had it. I was so unnerved but everyone on the boat was kind to me & welcoming and following along with my plight. Then I get on the boat, get my seat, and I go to the concession stand and the sweetest girl working there (middle floor) offered to charge my phone & talked me down until I was calm again. I bought a few seltzers and sat in my seat and had the best cruise. The tour guide was animated and fun and very informative. I could not have had a better experience and been more appreciative of the kindness of New Yorkers and the people that helped me during what could’ve been a scary time.
