My daughter and I went and we had a very nice time. The staff was very accommodating, and the views beautiful. The entertainment was fun.
The ship was top notch, the food was very good, everything was just as it was supposed to be.
We Paid a lot of money for this and when we went there were extra changes for some of the meals on the menu. I also have a food intolerance and that was put on the booking but it was not given to the cruise line operating this dinner cruise. I don't think we would do this cruise again.
Apart from lack of options on menu, ie if you don't like cream then no choice offered, otherwise the crew were friendly and helpful and the trip was amazing.
It would have been nice to have some small entertainment while waiting. Once we set sail the views were absolutely amazing. You felt like you could touch the Statue of Liberty, which was amazing and well worth it just for that moment alone. Our main hostess was lovely, but it did worry me when she mentioned just after we left dock to a couple at the other end of the seating that some of the wait staff could not speak English. The boat itself was fabulous and in great condition. It was lovely to get a souvenir photo of the trip although the cost was very expensive and I am wondering where the other photographs were. Everything throughout the cruise went smoothly. The food was ok, it is definitely not a cruise to go on for the food alone. The turkey was luke warm. At the end of the night everyone was getting ready to get up and leave and were waiting at the door to leave and this concerned both me and my mother so we got up also. While departing there was an elderly woman in a wheelchair departing. The Purser at the dock noticed the man in difficulty and shouted to a younger guy at the top of the steps to help and the younger guy did not! It was up to other male passengers to help. I wonder why wasn't the special needs passenger catered for. On leaving there were no taxis, no where! This entire moment put a complete wash on our night.

This was a Thanksgiving dinner with a difference. My friend and I had such a wonderful and great time, and will definitely love to do it again.
Really nice! It was a beautiful night, and food was very good.
The Dinner Cruise was pleasant for the most part; however, our table was next to the Galley and therefore there was a lot of foot traffic and noise all the time. The Dinner itself was mediocre at best. If you want a moderately enjoyable dinner cruise this will do but if you are expecting Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, you'd better look elsewhere.
It was a nice tour. The service could have been better, because we had to answer for every single glas of water, glas of wine and so on. Maybe that the reason was, that everything was payed in advance. But nevertheless we can recommand this arrangement.
Weather made the trip much better. Food was marginal, service OK, music too loud and other amenities were exaggerated, ie private table.
Smooth booking process and actual cruise was brilliant, but the food was not so good. Only luke warm soup and main. Maybe too many people to cater for successfully.
Loved it! it was a lot of fun and a great experience for our family.
a lovely trip out excellent views of the city and good service from the crew
Atmosphere was wonderful. The views were spectular, but the food was not very good. For the money, we would have been better off to take a sight seeing cruise and get good food at a high end resturant.
Trip was great, service was great but the food was a let down. Improve the food and we would have given the cruise a much higher rating, but unfortunately the food really let it down. Things like warming the bread rolls would be a nice touch especially with it being so cold. The chef needed to taste the food before adding more salt to his mains. Aside from that though, the staff were amazing, service was exceptional, and the sight seeing part supurb.
