Absolutely brilliant and worth every penny. Amazing service (thank you Anthony), great food and the unlimited bar upgrade was worth the additional money. The cruise itself afforded spectacular views and we loved every minute.

I took my children and 4 grandchildren on the buffet lunch cruise for my husband's 80th birthday. The food was great, the tour was excellent, and a beautiful day, The weather was perfect. so we stayed outside most of the tour. The attractions were great, especially a close up of the Statue of Liberty. There were games to play for the kids, and a DJ for the adults. We danced, and had a lot of fun. I would do it again. It was a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday.

The cruise was superb, Captain Jason and his crew couldnt be faulted. The views were stunning and we spent so much time cruising round the Statue of Liberty, it really is the best way to see this iconic monument.

Views spectacular. Food just ok. Drinks good. Unfortunately during record breaking cold temps in NYC there is no place remotely warm to wait until time to board. We were able to go into a very open warehouse - which was just as bad as outside with the wind whipping through. I would definitely recommend this cruise to others. We got some great Statue of Liberty pics from inside the boat where it was warm. Staff was friendly - which is always a plus.

Food was not what I expected. I was told there was gluten-free food. The chef made me a pasta dish for which I had to wait approximately 90 minutes. There was only a few dessert selections. Not worth the money.
