Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the New York Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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.
Views are as good as you imagine or better - well worth a trip. After the boat has gone round under Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges it turns and there are superb views from close to the statue of liberty. If you are a foody though, this trip may not be for you. The strange appetizer one piece between two oddly was promising, the starter OK, but main course very disappointing - the veg seemed to be form a pack of frozen mixed and the dish uninspired. My friends vegetarian dish was very feeble - a small potion of mushrooms on a small bed of basically baked beans. DJ works well with the music. It's difficult to know when you can leave the table to dance or sight see as there can be a long time between courses - our starter arrived very quickly well before we left port and our main course about an hour later. As long as you know it's the trip you are paying for, not the dining experience, I'd say go on this trip and enjoy.
Absolutely awful meal, main course came out cold, when it was sent back to the kitchen for replacement all they done was heat the plates not the food on it. Quality of the meal was not as you would expect for £100 + per person. Entertainment poor. Would definitely not recommend this trip to anyone

Unfortunately the experience was a rather poor one. It took an extremely long time for the food to be brought out and by the time it came it was very cold. There were probably 30 minute gaps before and between courses and some people got their food well before others. The experience was extremely disappointing and I wish me and my girlfriend had just stayed home and ordered in. The cruise needs to be planned completely differently if you are planning on continuing to charge the kind of prices that were charged as its unfair to charge that much and offer the kind of service we got. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
The view was great! We were not impressed with the food. My husband had the traditional Thanksgiving turkey and I had the Atlantic Salmon. The meal was luke warm and bland. This was by far the worse meal we had on this trip to NYC. Last year we went to the Gotham Bar and Grill which was fabulous!
The cruise was good but the food was dreadful,very disappointed. All the staff disappeared after serving the food so noone to complain to. The maitre de came to see me about my complaint only after satisfaction cards were issued about ten mins before the end of cruise and he offered me a bottle of champagne, it was to late to accept because the cruise was over.
