5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

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!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

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.
