5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

only complaint here was the food, not to our liking. But we did not go there to eat we went for the ride and Lady Liberty! We got all of that and more. The crew were very generous and attentive.
The oter thing was no one there to take us back to the hotel, no one around to help us find a ride, I thought the area would have cabs lined up as they did every where else we toured. Had to walk several blocks in the dark area we did not know, she is 80 I'm 69.

We had a wonderful time the food was great, friendly waiters, and you could not beat the view. Booking with viator saved a lot of money too vs buying directly from cruise line. I will do this again when I visit NYC again.
