Ordered on get your guide. Follows directions, scanned tickets and we went onboard. Be sure to get there early for check in and to enjoy extra music, drinks, and service. It was our first time in NY & this was a nice overview. Met many locals celebrating birthdays & anniversaries who gave us suggestions on other great things to do.

The tour was nice it could’ve started an hour later so you would been able to see more lights as you was going out for the first hour. There was a time whether guide was not talking at least they could’ve played music. All in all it was OK

The views were spectacular, the food was delicious and the staff were so very helpful and attentive. The music became too loud at the end - it would be nice to have a quieter area for those who prefer that sort of environment.

Superb cruise Narrator was very knowledgeable and explained the Manhattan skyline with numerous historical facts in an interesting manner. Plenty of space inside and on the deck

It was a great experience, be prepared with lots of water.
