This has to be one of the best trips to book whilst in New York.
I booked this tour for my Wife and two lads 21 and 19 and we all loved it.
The food is gorgeous and plentiful and the ship looked great. See pictures hopefully I will have uploaded correctly after my write-up.
We were blessed with gorgeous weather which helped, but even so, it wouldn't have mattered if it wasn't so nice. Dress smart casual and you'll be fine. No need for jackets but obviously do as you wish so long as you aren't in scruffy jeans and trainers!
We were returning home to the UK immediately afterwards and had booked Carmel Taxis to meet us at the security gate of Pier 81 on our return to take us straight to JFK. World Yacht are only too happy to allow you to take your luggage onboard - so NO EXCUSES guys, get booking this trip now, you will not regret it!
This was a highlight of our trip. To see all the amazing sights from the water really was special.
I would def recommend this tour.
What a fantastic way to see NYC on a beautiful sunny afternoon with family and friends! The food was spectacular. The views were breathtaking. The service was excellent. We really all had a great time. I only wish it was longer...two hours went very quick.
We had a great time on the cruise and I would definitely recommend it. The food and atmosphere were excellent and it was a good a good value for the $. If it is your first trip to NY, there are some great photo opportunities along the way. If you want to save a few $'s you can forgo the window view.
We had a wonderful time on our Easter brunch cruise. Staff was polite and accommodating. Food was very good. DJ was great. We did not have one single complaint about our experience from start to finish. Our only wish was that it was warmer and that the cruise lasted longer.
Best way to see the Hudson river and relax on top of the deck or below both where great and the food was amazing

Absolutely fantastic! What a way to see the skyline of Manhattan. Service was excellent - loved Raymond!!! Food was lovely as was the choice of drinks. Can't wait to do it again. Would book a priority table next time as we were on the New Jersey side rather than Manhattan side but it didn't really matter too much as we went up on deck and sat in comfort. I would recommend this 100%!
This trip was "awesome". It was a fantastic way to see the Statue of Liberty, relaxed and comfortable. The food and staff on the yacht was second to none! I would highly recommend this trip - a must for a visit to the Big Apple.
Our family had a great time on the cruise. The food was great. Would recommend this to anyone. It was a great way to see the city from the water.
A lovely leisurely way to see the harbour with excellent food and great service. The cruise itself is an unhurried affair, meaning a steady pace for photos and sighseeing from the deck, giving plenty of time to get into pose for lady liberty. The buffets were excellent and continually replenished, thank goodness, as the rest of the guests were not inclined to wait to start sailing before digging in. However, there was no shortage of food and something for everyone! We could not fault the service, attentive and polite. All-in-all a great start to our holiday.
Excellent. We went in September, so there were less people than in the high season and as a result there was lots of space (e.g. the dining table beside us was empty) and lots of room on the open deck when you went upstairs for photos of Statue of Liberty, NY skyline, etc. The food on the buffet was plentiful and VERY good. We asked to stay in the upstairs dining room for eating, which was much nicer than downstairs, where it was a bit more crowded and canteen-ish. One niggle was that we were kept waiting at the, shoreside kiosk until exactly 30 minutes before sailing, only then were we issued boarding cards and allowed aboard. It was VERY cold standing there, but the early arrival did perhaps get us a better table on the boat. The e-ticket did also say that men HAD to wear a jacket, but 95% of men on board did not, so you can go slightly more casually dressed. Would definitely do this again if we go back to New York.
This was the first of five trips we booked via Viator. It got off to a bit of a bad start given that my husband had long dress trousers on (as advised) and many people turned up with jeans, shorts and flip flops - rather more casual than we had imagined. He was less than pleased that he had made an effort and others were allowed to board in such casual dress. Other than several tables being finished their food before we left dock ( no pressure from staff to eat quickly ) the overall experience and staff on this cruise were fantastic. Food was outstanding and wine prices were reasonable.
Most excellent cruise, one of the highlights of our visit to N Y C

I really enjoyed this experience. The food was good and the service was excellent. It was a pleasure being waited on by Jason and I enjoyed seeing the NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty while dining on the cruise ship. I highly recommend this experience to all.
Absolutely Fab. We had a Sunny day which helped, but could not fault food, service, and quality of this boats fittings. The deck furniture was luxurious, and we had plenty of room to see all the views.
It was great!! My mom comes to visit me once a year from North Dakota, and we have decided to make this a yearly mom and daughter cruise day.
My boyfriend and I are also planning on going on the Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise, which I expect will be just as wonderful!!!
Awesome. My wife and I enjoyed this very much!! It was a major highlight of our trip!!
Everything was wonderful. The crew was very friendly and helpful. . and the service was fantastic. I was very happy with the food choices and I always had a beverage at my table without asking .. it was so nice . I will be returning with more relatives for another trip. thanks ,

We enjoyed this Sunday Brunch Cruise very much. We were celebrating my sons 14th birthday. The food was good, our table for six was in a nice location. We enjoyed the views of the Statue of Liberty.
The boat was great, food was great and all the staff was excellent. We were lucky to get a sunny day so we could enjoy the trip and see the sights.
Highly recommend this tour to everyone in NYC.
