Sailing on the Dutch Apple 2
Lola_F
, May 2022
I enjoyed the excursion on the Dutch Apple 2 on the Hudson River very much. It was relaxing and informative. The tour guide gave a lot of information about the Hudson and the surrounding area. The excursion started right on time so we didn't have to wait very long. The cost of the trip was very reasonable considering it was an hour and a half long. The crew was especially friendly and courteous. I have mobility issues and they were particularly helpful to me. We had lunch on the boat and the food was good and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, one of the other passengers was expecting a friend who missed the boat. I suggest anyone making the trip with friends make sure they arrive on time so they don't miss and enjoyable experience.

We took this cruise basically to fill some time. Not really that interesting. Along the way many industrial sites were pointed out: metal recycling with stacked up cars, barges and tugboats, an old molasses factory and a yacht club. The narration could only be heard inside the cabin, not on the deck where most people were. Some pretty houses along the river, with quaint stories about the builders. All in all, not something I would recommend.

The cruise was wonderful. The crew and the narrator were polite and professional. The only addition I could make would be for the narrator to make an additional comment at the outset about talking during the narration. We were seated in the lower lounge area for this cruise. It was difficult if not impossible to hear most of the narration over several loud conversations going on around us. There was ample time for conversation on the return leg as the narration was over.
