We travelled to New york from Dublin Ireland & this was 100% the highlite of our trip. The view was amazing, the staff where amazing, the food was amazing!! Deffenetly recommend this to anyone heading to New York.
Janette_c, Jun 2022
Loved it.Since we arrived the staff were friendly and very helpful . We boarded before time..and all members of the crew were waiting to meet and greet. Very nice...Tim was our waiter, he did an excellent job. We went sightseeing and Tim came to us to let us know dinner was ready..I thought that was a beautiful gesture. Love his professionalism and his personality...I recommend Bateaux Dinner Cruise to those who enjoy good food, good music, good drinks and enjoy to see the beauty of New husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary, we want something elegant and cozy. (It was great choice) - we had the best experience.

Excellent Dinner Crusie
Marcia_J, Jun 2022
The meal & atmosphere was excellent. I enjoyed the jazz band along with meeting new friends. Would highly recommend to friends & family members.
Try another cruise
Elizabeth_B, Jun 2022
The views were fantastic but in terms of value for money it was poor. Considering the price paid you would expect wine with dinner at least not buying your own cocktails at $22 each.
John_C, Jun 2022
Excellent trip, well worth taking even if you have seen New York before this gives you a different view as you sail down the Hudson river. The meal was very good as were the band.
seth_e, Jun 2022

Montriniki_W, Jun 2022
The host was inviting, the band and music selection was appropriate, the ambiance was perfect, the food was presented well and tasted great. The sites were amazing along the cruise, seeing the Statue of Liberty at night was humbling! This was a wonderful experience!

Bad deal
Jackie_M, Jun 2022
First you cancel my original cruise. Booked us on another boat. We are from Colorado and our friends are from England. We get to the pier to find out this boat has a private function and we were stuck in rain with no where to go after being over price by cab driver. Awfully bad night. Now I have to go through hoops to get my money back. Never again. Thank you very much
Enjoyed it could be great with a few changes
Richard_W, May 2022
Was a nice boat food was good could have given us more time to take pictures especially of Brooklyn bridge music was not great couldn’t hear what she was singing a lot of the time
Sunset cruise
Philip_S, May 2022
Seeing the New York skyline from the river. Watching sunset and the lighting up of the buildings with Brooklyn bridge was brilliant. The Statue of Liberty was amazing once illuminated. (And the meal was excellent)!
Special Anniversary night
Barbara_V, May 2022
It was our anniversary and and we were treated exceptionally I was given roses, we were given 2 glasses of champagne and a special desert with a candle all without asking.. the food was excellent as usual, we’ve taken this cruise 3 times in the past and will definitely be back again. We made great friends with 2 couples that sat next to us, exchanged emails and plan to meet up in the city again. Could not have been a better night…. Love this dinner cruise..
Superb food and amazing views, food!
Robert_K, May 2022

Wonderful experience!
Kevin_S, May 2022
Amazing ambiance and experience. Would recommend again and again. Great food, amazing views, and impeccable service. Drinks could use some strengthening!
Dinner cruise down the Hudson and East rivers
Julie_F, May 2022
Seeing Manhatten from the River in daylight and at night was truly magical. Food was excellent as were the staff. Make sure you have return taxi booked as cabs are not readily available at the piers.
Good, but wasn’t what I expected.
Tarik_S, May 2022
This is a great cruise if you’re in large group and looking to celebrate a special occasion. Majority of the parties on board were 4 or more in size. My wife and I were looking for something quiet and intimate. Between the band and loud dancing and cheering tourist groups, you almost needed ear plugs. This is not the cruise for intimate romance. The food was typical banquet style food. The type of food you would expect at a wedding. Be careful of the menu, because most of the top tier items are an extra charge. Despite the rain we experienced, the views are spectacular and it is a great way to see the Statue of Liberty and other water front landmarks. The service is average. Our hostess was good, but she seemed overwhelmed with the amount of tables she was overseeing. Lastly, I selected a window table during booking. Be careful with this aspect of booking. Your receipt won’t show that you paid for a window table, and they won’t have a record of it at the host stand. I witnessed a man tip the hostess an $50 for window table and he got it. I wasn’t about to pay extra on top of what I already paid. Moral of the story, don’t pay extra in advance. Just arrive early and bribe the host when you arrive.
