We received an email from Viator re this cruise before we left for our trip to USA and we thought why not. We boarded the cruise with friends who live in New Jersey not quite knowing what to expect. Our friends had never done this cruise prior to our visit. We all had a fabulous time. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. There was plenty of food and of good quality. Entertainment was excellent. And of course, the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline at night (priceless). I would recommend this cruise to any visitor to New York.
