This party cruise was just amazing! We had all inclusive bar, which importantly for us included drinks that were named! whilst we ate lovely food and had laughs whilst dancing the night away. The experience of seeing Manhattan in lights was spectacular! It was truly a magical 3 hours and one that we will never forget.

This tour was awesome! You really get what you pay for. The views of the city from the open rooftop deck made for some unforgettable pictures. The crew was excellent and made us feel safe from the very start. This tour was NOT a college boat party, it was just classy.

Great views from the boat made it and amazing cruise. The staff we experienced was very friendly and courteous. Again, the views made the trip worth while for sure. We got the tour only and it was perfect for us. We drank vino and beers only on this trip.

My only suggestion would be to mix up the music a bit. Booty bouncing top 40 hip hop is great but it filled 95 of the time on the cruise. Perhaps a little diversity in music and to play more to everyone on the cruise would have been ideal. It's a cruise of New York City!!! The mecca for diversity right??!! Oldies, mixing in some rock and roll and 80's/90's would have been amazing. We pay attention and pay attention to great service we ended up only tipping the bar staff not the DJ unfortunately.

Other than hearing the same thumping coming from the sub woofer from start to finish, we managed to escape to the outside the see some great views in the crispy air!! Again, what views. It would have been nice to know what we were looking at during the cruise but we just used our GPS on our phones and figured it out. Wish we could have plugged in my Pandora but I digress.......!! Hahaha!

Again, good trip for most, great for gatherings for top 40 club hoppers and anyone that doesn't care about music but wants to enjoy more of the sights on the outer decks. I bet it's a blast during the warmer months for sure but the crisp air made it lively and a reason to cuddle on the lower decks. Maybe the DJ can mix it up just a bit more and he tour can attract more in clients and tips during the cooler seasons!! Just sayin'.
