fantastic, nothing like bringing in July 4th in style boat = great, position in the water amazing I will be back :)
we had a wonderful time! the staff was very nice, the DJ very funny and his music amazing! We will definitely recomend it to friends! the way the ship was situated gave us a fabulous view of the show. The only not too good thing, were the lines to get refreshments, but that really did not take away from the good time. THANK YOU!
Amazing view of the fireworks and such a fun way to spend an evening. Sit outside at the back of the boat as close to the rail as possible. Strongly recommend you BYOB and snax because the line-up is really long. Took over an hour waiting in line to get served.
We thoroughly enjoyed the disco and the fireworks were just superb.
Absolutely the best fourth of July my family has ever had. The view was spectacular! We were right up on the front lines just several hundred feet from the first Macy's barge. I got the most vivid pictures of the fireworks display. I would definitely recommend this event for all to see, however, I have reservations about saying this because I want to go again next year and I feel the crowds will be even larger, but there are many boats available. The only negative point I can mention is that the food available on the boat was limited and some of the selections were sold out before we even got a chance to purchase and we were one of the first groups on the boat. Remember you usually get on the water by 730 pm and the fireworks don't start until around 920 pm so you will have plenty of time to take in the sites prior to the main event. I will be returning with my family next year for another great Fourth of July in the BIG APPLE on the Hudson!
If you are ever in New York on the fourth of July this is a must, just make sure you get there reasonably early at least 1 and a half ours before they are due to leave to avoid the wait in line don't get me wrong the line moved fast but they can be very long with the added heat and humidity make sure you have water while waiting in line. But the experience was amazing, the people, the fireworks and the atmosphere. Make sure you get a bite to eat before you are on as there is not much in the way of meals and find yourself a prime position on top deck from the beginning otherwise you will be kicking yourself.
The boat was very nicely appointed and not too crowded. Food and drinks were reasonably priced. The best part, the view of the fireworks was absolutely great!
Excellent chance to share Independence Day with the natives. Great people.
Excellent. We set off onto the Hudson at 6. A beautiful view of Manhattan, DJ, food and drinks on board. Splendid fireworks! My best 4th of July in my 49 years!
Glad we got there early as there were a lot of people and it is first come first served for seating, which proved to be baseless cause we had a great DJ who got everyone up dancing. There was food and drink available too, not very cheap though. The sights and sounds were unbelievable. We had a great group of passengers and a crew who really wanted us to have a good time, and the weather was perfect. All of which contributed to a most enjoyable time which I would highly recommend.
Loved it and would do it again if in N.Y. for July 4th. Everything went smoothly.
This was a great trip. I had planned this as a surprise for my boyfriend, and he absolutely loved it. The best thing about this cruise apart from the beautiful view of the fireworks was that after the fireworks show was over, everyone was dancing to the music played by the live DJ. The food was not expensive, as it usually is on cruises. I absolutely recommend this to all romantics.
Was pretty fun, should be done at least once in a lifetime, depending on how one feels about cruises. Several things that were a bit annoying though; the long wait in the sun before getting on, not accepting credit cards for purchases, lack of efficiency at getting things done, and a near dead crowd. Music was great, food was great, fireworks were awesome, glad I did it at least once.
