New York Sunday Brunch Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It was my sisters and my first trip to New York City, and this tour is a must. Once on board, you are treated like a Queen and the brunch was awesome. Tasty and great variety! Just loved the complimentary champagne/orange juice drink we received as soon as we sat down at our table. It was a beautiful Sunday in New York that day, and we thoroughly enjoyed lounging on the top deck and leisurely watching the amazing scenery on the shoreline, and of course, the Statue of Liberty up close!
Concerns - We arrived an hour early as instructed, to be told rather abruptly that they were not beginning to take our vouchers for an hour so we had to STAND in the heat for another hour, when we had rushed to get there. Other passengers were quite upset about this as well. Also, as much as it was nice to have a pianist at the brunch, the music was a little too loud, and something more relaxing I believe he was playing jazz would have been more suitable for a Sunday Cruise. And finally, the windows should be cleaned before each cruise.
Other than that, I would truly say that no trip to New York as a tourist is complete without taking in this cruise. We feel that we surely received more than our money's worth! p.s. As we waited in line, we watched the other cruise line next to us at the harbour load up with people in jeans and very casual shorts etc. just PACKING into their boat and felt we had definitely made the right choice to sail in far more formal attire.

My Review
Today, September 11, 2008, would be a very appropriate time to provide my review. It was my sisters and my first time to New York City, and we knew we could not visit your city without a visit to this museum. It was very tastefully done, and moving. We were thrilled to meet the official Ground Zero photographer at the end of the tour, but unfortunately appeared to be the only tourists who spent time with him. We were advised that he might drop by at some point but when he walked in, it was not confirmed that this is who this person was, so I believe everyone felt hesitant to go up to him. In future, he should receive a worthy introduction, as what he has done in that very small place is truly an amazing tribute! God Bless New York City and the families of the victims of 911.
