Very nice experience on the Atlantica cruise ship! The highlight was definitely experiencing the midnight fireworks on the top deck, on one end with Manhattan Skyline and on the other alongside Lady Liberty! All this while sipping some bubbly wine! Before that, during dinner, the ship cruised down on the Hudson River then back up the East River past the Brooklyn Bridge for great views of Manhattan. Dinner and welcome snacks were fine, we were there more for the view and midnight feel!
This is the perfect way to celebrate the New Year while in New York. A luxury boat, gourmet dinner, impeccable service and an unique view of New Year Fireworks by the Statue of Liberty! Can't get any better than this! The boat offers a classy atmosphere, and features huge windows that allowed us to view NYC Skyline as we dined. The food was good and plentiful, while the open bar kept us fully served, from bubbly toast to wine and cocktails. The onsite DJ had us danced a long while after the midnight celebrations, I think I was the last one to leave the dance floor! The best part of all this was of course the time we spent anchored close to the Statue of Liberty. We had a prime location for watching the fireworks, which lasted several minutes - the highlight of the evening and a memorable moment! Definitely how New Year's Eve should be!
This was absolutely fantastic! This was the best new year I have ever had. I was in New York for new year from Scotland with my girlfirend and I would definitely recommend this to anybody without hesitation. The food was great, unlimited alcohol all night, great waiters and unrivalled views of the magnificent Manhattan skyline. To finish the night off, we took in a great fireworks display in front of the statue of liberty. Can't think of many better ways to spend new year eve!
The New Year's Dinner Cruise was wonderful! The food was not terrible and was not fabulous but what do you expect when feeding 200 people!? The wait staff did a great job with service. The views and fireworks were breathtaking! I would highly recommend this tour.
I enjoyed this cruise however not everything advertised for it happened -no band and no dockside party once we got back to the dock. The food was excellent however the time between each course was excessive - it didn't give much time for dancing to the DJ afterwards.
For the price I expected more. The wine selection was very limited. The service was good and they went the extra mile to provide me a taste of both entries. But the delivery of the food took too long. There was very little time to enjoy the dance floor or meet other passengers. The fireworks were nice, but I could have seen them from a much cheaper cruise. Overall it was not worth the money and would not recommend it to others.
