The massage of the meeting point doesn’t say where to go , left or right. Then heading at the boat they was no one to receive us guests and show us the way, we had to move around without knowing which boat to go to. The food was good but next time they should provide more options, but the rest was good , the music and the ambiance, the people on board are so kind and very good for customer service

Excellent, This was an awesome outing. The staff was great and attentive. The food was good as well. The only thing that I didn't like was that they ran out of food. Not that it wasn't enough, people piled their plates. If you go on this cruise make sure you have mapped out your return to hotel. When the cruise is over cabs are scarce.

There was a water leak above our reserved table. They tried to fixed the leak, but to no avail. However, the waiter was kind enough to move our party to another table and the waitress compensated us with a bottle of sparkling water for our table. We appreciate the customer service. The sightseeing, the food, and the music was great. I would recommend the lunch buffet cruise on the Spirit of New York for any visitor to New York.
