The atmosphere was informal and fun. The waiting staff doubled as the entertainment by singing and dancing. They were brilliant getting everyone in the party mood. The tables were set out formally, like a restaurant. The food was excellent and plentiful, eat as much as you like . Drinks a little pricey as not included in price . This was a great evening and a great end to our stay in New York. We travelled with our 17 year old daughter and 11 year old son who both enjoyed it.

Loved it! The cruise was awesome and the food was very good. Great value for the money. Probably the most enjoyable part of our trip to NYC. The views of the city from the Hudson, especially at dusk, are breathtaking and worth the price of the tickets. Would definitely recommend it!

We had a great time. Buffet good with enough variety. We were initially seated next to dance floor and speakers and were given other seats when we asked to move. Servers excellent and their singing was fun. Two suggestions: 1. would have liked a quick comment on intercom to describe the landmarks as we passed them. As in "on our left is ...." Just quick overview and not to disturb the music and shows too much. 2. Online and confirmation call never said had to pick up tickets at booth. Walked dock to ship with confirmation in hand, had to walk back and get tickets. Small matter but irritating. All in all a great tour.

Great experience. Seeing the Manhatten skyline and the Statue of Liberty up close for the first time in the dark was a very atmospheric experience. I will never forget it. Weather was kind so being outside on deck was not uncomfortable, however most on our trip seemed intent on partying below deck with the resident DJ and multi skilled service staff who doubled up as entertainers. The whole night is very relaxed and informal, allbeit most peole dressed as if going out for the night to a party. The boat is really nice andthe buffet food of a OK quality. Parties ranged from 2 to 20 but everyome seemed to enjoy themselves. A very friendly trip. If you dont mind a steamy drinks bill and a bit of cheesy party music I would reccomened this to everyone. Be very careful to ensure that you confirm your attendance before you leave the UK and to check for any time changes. Once in the USA I found the company that runs the trip very helpful.

we took the first class package and thats exactly what we got first class from the moment we turned up to the time we left the staff were the most helpful we have encountered whilst still being discreet, the food was out of this world and the champagne, wine and cocktails were flowing all evening. All in all we had an amazing evening, would do it again and deffinately recomend anyone visiting New York books this trip. we came away with a big huge smile on our faces.

Really enjoyed this evening cruise. It was very different to the New Year's Eve cruise that we also booked through Viator. The dinner cruise was nice and laid back and gave us ample opportunity to stand out and take in the Manhattan skyline (despite the cold !).
The boat itself was very smart, and the staff very pleasant and attentive. The food was fine for a buffet, and included a carvery. Only thing to point out is that the drinks aren't cheap (35-odd bucks and up for a bottle of wine, 8 bucks and up for a bottle of beer) but then New York isn't the place to go for a cheap trip I guess. Having said that, it was quite odd that they didn't have prices on the drinks menu.
Definitely a good thing to do one evening if you are staying in New York.
