This evening dinner cruise was absolutely fantastic, its a must. Brilliant views, food was great, wine not as expensive as I thought it might be : live music to top it off. Everyone was dressed up which made it a more classy night. My wife and I had the perfect 30th anniversary. Cant rate it highly enough, would definitely do again if we come back to New York which is also brilliant. Thank you.

Bought this Dinner Cruise for my parents 30th wedding anniversary, they loved it!
The parking on the other hand made a dent in their pocket.
