      It was fantastic, well organized and we had excellent friendly service! Our meal was delicious. We had the window seat and it was certainly well worth the extra cost.


      5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

      We did this dinner cruise on our last night in New was a lovely way to end our trip...we opted for a window seat so had great views of the city by night..although as it was a glass boat I'm sure it would have been great wherever you sat...
      The food was lovely.. although the portions were small..but as there were three courses it was enough..the waiters were friendly and helpful.
      We would definitely recommend this trip.. but its not cheap...x
