Fantastic! We were right under the Statue of Liberty...took some amazing pictures as the sun was setting...great cruise. Great crew and not over crowded. Only tip is to take some snacks.

Great experience. Sightseeing before the fireworks and then a great spot for viewing the fireworks. DJ was awesome.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Fabulous, apart from the fact the fireworks did not start until after midnight not 10pm as stated. The boat was fun, with a disco and drinks, but trying to get a taxi from the piers at 3 in the morning was hard!

Enjoyed the boat cruise and fireworks. The only criticism is the music was a little loud.!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Fun evening with available top tier seating for all onboard and good music selection in early evening by our DJ., however, the music Macy's had chosen for the fireworks display would have been a better fit for that part of the evening. We really enjoyed the views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the New York skyline. Had an unobstructed view of the fireworks, but it might have been better had we been anchored in the East River a little closer to fireworks display like some of the other cruises instead of along the shoreline. With a couple of slight inmprovements, it would have been perfect, but would definitely recommend.

The pre-cruise was okay. The view from the river of the bridges and the skyline were great. When It came time for the fire works they pulled into a pier and we got to see the action from a position with thousands of non-paying cruise participants.
