We had a very bad experience getting there, the taxi driver was so rude and drove like a maniac. The cruise was fabulous. There was so much food and tasted great. Our server Terrence was so good to us. We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. He arranged for a long stemmed rose to be bought to our table, then he had a special plate made up for our dessert. It was fantastic. This is must, you see New York by night. The boat stays for about ten minutes around the Statue of Liberty to take lots of photos. We had a great time.
It was so nice, with great tasting food. Staff was friendly and always available. Try to get a seat next to a window for the great views of NY. Music was all genres to benefit all different people. I would recommend to anyone.
We had the most amazing cruise it was my 50 th birthday and they made it so special would defiantly do it again brilliant
Not enough people had booked this cruise so they upgraded us to the Bateau at no additional charge. It was our anniversary ...they gave us one of the captains tables and the Capt hand delivered a glass of champagne. The food and service were top notch. They stop in front of the Statue of Liberty for 10 minutes to allow for picture taking. I would take this again in a heart beat
My husband wasn't sure what to expect. But he loved it. Had a great time. Highly recommend it!
This dinner cruise was so much better than the one we'ed done on Lake Mead a week earlier. It was probably easier that you had to make your own way to the pier as this eliminates any issues with pick up. The organisation was superb, the staff attentive and the food great. We had booked the first class package which meant we had a fantastictable with excellent views of New York by a window on the Upper Deck, and the waiter kept our glasses full.
The three hours seemed to fly by and we also enjoyed the onboard disco. It was also a much better way of seeing the lights of Manhattan (and Lady Liberty) at night than the night bus tour.
New york is an beautiful place and the cruise was amazing,loved the views,and New york looked even more beautiful at night with all the lights,can't wait to return and possibly go on the cruise again. I would highly recommend this cruise
We got upgraded to a great ship and the dinner cruise was off the chart. The food was very, very good
This was the highlight of our holiday. It was absolutely amazing as the sailing took in all the views of Manhatton and The Statue of Liberty all magically lit up. The buffet dinner was superb and the service magnificent. Drinks, however were very expensive - nothing under $10 (alcoholic) and although it was stated that all gratuities were included this was not true for the drinks waitress. She was awesome, though so our bill was a sizeable one! I would heartily recommend this trip but advise budgeting for drinks and tips.
An excellent night out. Enjoyed great food whilst enjoying the Manhatten skyline. Great views of the well lit night city, including the Empire State Building, Brooklin Bridge and The Statue of Liberty. There was music and dancing to keep all toes tapping. We did this cruise on our last night in New York and would recommend as a good way to finish up.
Great fun. Food was tasty and we felt really well looked after. Got up close to the Statue of Liberty and seeing manhattan skyline at night from a boat felt really special. Drinks a little on the pricey side. But would recommend.
It was very nice. More than we expected.
Only one thing to mention: the music was too loud. Sometimes you want just to eat quietly or speak with your guests.
Otherwise , it was a very pleasant experience. Thank you very much.
Our twilight dinner cruise was fabulous.. Our meal was delicious and the waiter service very attentive. The New York skyline was beautiful as the sun set and the tall buildings started to twinkle. The live entertainment was enjoyed by all on board. A delightful way to enjoy one of our special nights in New York.
The tour was perfect, but the procedure was terrible.We were asked to confirm the tour with the touroperator, 72 hours prior the departure on a phone number where a recorded voice asked us to do the confirmation in mail. Nobody answered to the mail. When finally 3hours before the tour's beginning somebody picked up the phone, it turned out that is absolutely not necessary, she didn't even understand why I was complaining, because of the waste of time and money. Viator should clarify it with the tour operator!!!
Great way to see New York City at night. Thoroughly enjoyable and great staff. Plenty of outside seating on the boat. Try it!
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner cruise, dinner was a nice buffet and we had perfect weather for the cruise. Really enjoyable.
The food and atmosphere was fantastic! I ate 2plates, I couldn't resist. The dj kept us on the dance floor. We're definitely booking this cruise again for our next NYC trip. We've already recommended it to fiends and family.
Wonderful evening, spectular views, wonderful service and super food. Very highly recommended - a real treat!
This was definitely one of the highlights of our NYC trip. Boarding at 7 o'clock was the perfect timing to start with some drinks at the upper deck, before we went to our reserved table (which we were given when we boarded) for dinner. The food at the buffet was good and the music was good. Also we appreciated that the boat was not that crowded. What a beautiful sunset just behind the statue of liberty when we sailed close to her!
Terrific evening! Food was great, staff, crew were excelent and the views were amazing! A great value from Viator.
In spite of the pouring rain that evening, this was a great dinner cruise. I have been on others in other cities, but I really enjoy this one. Dinner was good. They did however, seem to have trouble keeping up with bringing food in to keep up with the people in lines. The person that was the DJ that evening was fun and kept the fun going in spite of the rain. All in all, the group of four of us really enjoyed the cruise.
