The only thing that prevented an excellent review were the long lines for the outrageously priced drinks in tiny cups. Otherwise we had a very good time.

Birthday Cruise Experiance
Voyager800337
, Jul 2019
Promptness when boarding and setting for sail would be nice, A great party starts with music. Music is the key factor to set people in a dance mood. My guest and I were surprised to hear all the old music we were listening too. While on deck we noticed a DJ playing music on the pier venue. He was doing a great job. His music sounded new, captivating and more inviting. That DJ really worked it and put the listener in a real good party mood. You guys should hire that DJ. Up dating the music would be to your best interest. We didn't dance thru out the entire yacht cruise..The music didn't move us. Also, more cocktail lil tables in front of the deck rail or sitting loungers would be nice. It's the first time I celebrate my birthday without dancing. Other than that the cruise was ok for sightseeing and taking pictures.

Great views from the boat made it...

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'.

not a bad trip but with a few issues... suppose to leave at 8 but the staf were still trying to poach people from the beerfesh up the pier up untill 8,30,,, we were make to q in a security tent for ages i dont have a problem with security/searches but we werent propery searched ...then people arriving late werent searched at all.... small cans of beer were 8 and when you went to the dance floor ,the floor staff were cleaning up your table so you had to buy more beer..... as most people had prepaid for endless drink ,,,there seems to be a push from the staff to get paying costumers to buy as much as possible...the sail out and back was very good and you saw the best of manhatten / new york from the river ... so that end of the trip was grand

We bought a package that included open bar, food, and getting on the boat. Once we got on the cruise we find out we cant eat, that they no longer accepting that packet from the 3rd party vendor, that you have the wrong information, also we were told that the cruise was 3 hours long, to then be told its only 2 hours. I called Viator to let you guys know what happen, was told you would get back to me, only to get an e-mail saying I needed to put this in writing and send it to them, thats the only way for you to consider this. We had a party of 9 people.

Had a brilliant time on the yacht. The cruise team were friendly and helpful. The yacht was nice and clean. The music was good, the scenery was excellent. Sailing down the Hudson going pass iconic landmarks was just amazing. All in all a very enjoyable night. Would definitely recommended the trip.
