Amazing view of the Manhattan Skyline and Statue of Liberty. Lots of photo opportunities since we had a 1,5 hour cruise. Service minded and professional staff and a beautiful boat. We had lovely weather but I’m sure a cloudy day will be great as well...More

This was a very pleasant experience. The duration was just right. The commentary was informative yet not intrusive or irritating. The service was professional and courteous. The view of the Statue of Liberty was great, for someone who does not have the time to disembark.

I think the wine was about $7 or $8/ glass though I can't remember exactly. The drinks and appetizers were reasonably priced for the city.
