    Had a wonderful time with my family celebrating my birthday and seeing the beautiful sights of NYC. The cruise ship and staff were great.
    Pleasant ride, friendly staff, bad PA system
    Myra_L, Aug 2022
    Pleasant ride, friendly staff. Nicely air conditioned ship, spacious sections for your group. Love that they had cheese plate as a choice for snack. It wasn’t much of a Manhattan skyline & Statue of Liberty cruise as it’s not focused on who, what where & why of these locations. One can barely hear the muffled PA system of the captain. We bought it from a 3rd party company (Viator) who said 1 drink was complimentary. This is really a part of what you’ve paid for.
    We’re missing the boat...
    Dowruang_S, Aug 2022

    Benjamin_E, Aug 2022
    The best part of this trip is that l was able to explore the whole city in a short period of time. Really worth it.
    Fantastic Harbor Cruise!
    Maxwell_H, Jul 2022
    This cruise was a great way to spend an afternoon with friends or family. The boat was just the right size for our group of 12, where we had 2 tables to ourselves in the back. The our first drink was free and the remaining cocktails on the menu were great. Definitely would revisit another time!
    The cruise was wonderful...
    Kristen_J, Jul 2022
    The cruise was wonderful except for the fact that you can't really hear the captain speaking therefore you really don't know what buildings you are looking at. There was a staff member on deck who was very engaging, talked with visitors, gave tips on other things to do in the city and she went around the ship offering to take photos. The check in process was also very easy. Would definitely recommend if you don't mind missing the facts.
    Great time!
