The check-in process was a bit disorganised but once aboard, everything went smoothly. Food and drink were very good and plentiful and there was a fun atmosphere. Overall we felt it was good value for money and it gave us a good view of the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline and bridges of lower Manhattan. Worth doing if you want to combine sightseeing with a fun atmosphere.

VERY happy hour cruise!

My 3 sisters and I had a great time on this cruise. The views were fantastic, perfect end to our day. We were celebrating a special birthday - the cruise was spot-on. The music was good for all age groups, the drinks were pretty reasonable, easy to get served etc. Staff were excellent throughout. We were all buzzing when we came off the boat! I must say we were a little apprehensive before we boarded, as we had seen one or two reviews stating it was a poor experience - but I honestly couldnt recommend it more highly ( we're not "youngsters", but didnt feel out of place at all). There was a real mix of age groups, including families, party groups, couples - with 21st, 50th and 60th birthdays being celebrated! And not one bit of bother. Well done Hornblower Cruises

The cruise is not the same as its advertisement - It was understood that it may take 2 hours, but only 1 hour in reality

Meh could have been better

Disappointed that we purchased the unlimited premium bar only to be told that it was for beer and wine only. That was a waste of money since I drink neither and ended up purchasing my drinks. There was only 1 table on the whole upper deck to sit at along with a couple of bench type seats. Thankfully we were the first to arrive as I would not have wanted to be squished on the main floor with the others. Would have been super hard to see the scenery. The line for the food stretched all the way around the boat so you would have missed at least 30 min of the tour itself. One in my group did wait in line for food for it to be mediocre at best. Eat before you go and get the cheap tickets, or find a boat with more outdoor seating.

After a week visiting every sightseeing spot possible this was an excellent way to relax and have a few drinks. Sailing up the Hudson River then the East river under Brooklyn Bridge and by the Statue of Liberty wS an excellent way to remember our week

We enjoyed the Happy Hour Cruise. Beautiful views of the bridges, Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty and Manhatten. The most stunning views of the sunset over Manhattan and between the buidings and One World Tower. Fun tour with music and dancing. I was hoping to see the night Syline but it wasnt dark enough. Would be great to go on a slightly later trip. Altogether worthwhile though It was quite a long walk from the Subway to the boat.
