4th of July on the Hudson? The best place to be! Friendly staff, pretty decent food, the weather held out, Fantastic Firewords show, and on one of the biggest boats on the water! We lined up early,( and it was flippin hot), but to insure good seats, it was well worth wainting in line on the pier for an hour for the boat. Even though we didnt know what seats to pick, we opted for the top deck, on the rear of the boat. And what a break, best seats in the house! Back of boat faces the fireworks show! Great Boat, 4th of July, do it!!!

All in all, it was a terrible trip. The buffet was atrocioopus. For the price, I would have expected more. The ship was too crowded. There were not enough tables. The lloudsp-eaker did no0t work during the fireworks. This trip can only be rated as UNSATISFACTORY and certainly not worth the price.

Very nice boat and crew was very accomidating, Our family had a wonderful time and the views of the Manhattan skyline were fantastic. Great location and viewing of the fireworks. The food was very good and there was plenty for all even seconds. Everyone had a great time and we meet seveal other families that were also visiting New York. I would recommend this tour and we would do it again if we were back in the big Apple.

a magic 4th of July to be sure... boat was very comfortable, just the right amount of air conditioning... and the food was very good. Well worth the effort to go.

Well worth the $. Loved the roving waiters with trays of food before the buffet was ready. Great variety, buffet had many choices, bar areas were crowded but line moved along and after awile it was easy to get drinks. Downside...hand out water before boarding so people can stand the summer heat and have enough cutlery. Ran out and people had to clean and share plastic forks. Top notch crew

Great trip. Views were great. service was OK based on number of people on the boat. Food was......What I expected for a crowd that big...Not great.....Could have had more choices at bar and a few more munchies around for longer.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2012

It was a nice ride on the Hudson, however the food was not so nice. We did not like the buffet style. Wish the food was tastier.
