Very enjoyable, wonderful view of the city at night. Food ok, service good, band good. Expensive.
2 issues I had:
1. advertised as" jacket and tie required for men and cocktail wear for ladies". Many of the guests ignored this which I found annoying. Seems pointless to me advertising it as such if it's not going to be enforced.
2. When the cruise finished at 10pm I found myself feeling abandoned at Pier 61 with no taxis. Instead a convoy of private hire limos who were looking for $80 to take you uptown!! Both myself and my wife walked for 15 minutes across busy roads before eventually getting a taxi.

The overall cruise was nice, however we found it quite surprising that after spending so much money for the tickets, we still had to pay for our wine and even our photos? (At least make the first glass free and throw in the pictures).
Our waiter was excellent, very nice and on top of things.

Great evening. Service was slow to start with - particularly as we had upgraded to first class with open bar but were not offered a drink before first course arrived - but picked up and by the end. Food was OK but not exceptional. Go on this for the views not the food.

The trip was very good. We had difficulty locating the entrance to the pier 61 and booth for redeeming vouchers. Could be marked better from the entrance to the building. Food and entertainment were good.

Atmosphere was amazing. You can't beat eating dinner with a constantly changing view of the NYC skyline. Plus how often do you see the city from the perspective of the water. The food was not spectacular, we were a little crammed, and the dancing was not very organized and there was no actual place for dancing - so we felt that we were oversold on the dancing. Overall, really enjoyable experience and a great place to celebrate our anniversary.

This was our 1st time to do this cruise and it was very nice. The food was really good and the entertainment great. One of the highlights was when the boat went out to the Statue of Liberty and stayed there a while so we could take pictures and really get a good look at it. Everything was so beautiful at night with all the lights. I would definitely do it again.

Was an excellent way to spend the evening, the statue of liberty looked fantastic in the evening. Had trouble getting taxi when you come off boat, could do with them being in the taxi rank.
