    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!!
