The sights were beautiful. I'm definitely glad we had the opportunity to take the tour. However, David was irritating. He gave a lot of extra, pointless information during his "stand up" routine. Many times certain buildings were behind us before he was able to point them out because he was telling another personal story. Yes, we KNOW you came to NYC in 1985! I could've done less with your pronunciation corrections. You came off as self-righteous. I definitely wasn't expecting a poor man's Jay Leno (also unfunny) to provide what could've been more enjoyable commentary. "There's a bowl for every soul." Please!

we had 10 of us I put vouchers on my phone and check in was seamless. We arrived at the pier 40 before departure and the top deck was 2/3 full. We still got seats diagonal from each other so that worked out. The cruse was well narrated and smooth sailing. The only negative in my opinion was we were on the east river at sunset and missed it, but otherwise we had a great time.

This was an overall great experience. Some of the outdoor space is limited which doesn't always give everyone a chance to be outside for pictures and sightseeing. Not the fault of the cruise line, but the kids were a bit busy and loud. If you're going with your family, then it would be great. Couples may want something less family-like. I had a great experience and would certainly use them again.
