It was amazing to get out on the water! The boat was clean, everyone was well-spaced out, and the crew were friendly and helpful. We even had our own table that we didn't share with other guests. The weather was so wonderful we spent almost all of the cruise out on the deck! Seeing Lady Liberty with the sun setting in the background was just delightful. You can't take food or drinks onboard but my friends and I had a picnic in the park nearby, which was actually perfect!

I cannot recommend the Sunset Cruise highly enough. Three of us, all seasoned travelers, thought it was almost a 'transformative' experience. We had excellent fall weather - but it would have been aa amazing any time. You cannot beat the scenery or the experience. The boat is perfect - a retro design, but all brand new and built with beautiful woods. It's an inspiring way to see the City - and one of the great harbors of the world. The crew are first class in every way. Tell the crew thanks for a truly magical experience!

Fantastic enthusiastic crew, not real Champagne

The experience was exceptionally good we were really well looked after by the amazing crew. Unfortunately I was expecting a sailing boat so was slightly disappointed when I saw the boat. And I was dismayed to find that the Champagne was cheep slightly fizzy wine which I believe is false advertising. So if you know what to expect, overall it was fantastic, the views of the manhattan sky line and the statue of liberty were breath-taking.
