The cruise was very informative. We got really close to the Statue of Liberty. Best photos from the rear outside of the boat on left side. Boarding was on the boat, Majestic at no. 3. No one told us this and it wasn’t on the website. Great music honoring NY while videotaping Lady Liberty.

The experience was good. During the week of Christmas, the wind was the major factor so bundle up. Also recommend the picture they offer since everyone is fighting for a good picture of the Statue of Liberty. Take sea sickness medicine an hour before as well. It was a bit rocky not too bad since the boat is large.

Great value and water experience on a summer day. We treated our 3 grandchildren to this 1 hour cruise to see the Statute of Liberty and it was our grandson's 8th birthday. Captain Ronnie was tremendously generous with his time, and even allowed our boy to sit in the captain's chair while educating him about the captain's job and his experiences navigating the boat. He made the experience unforgettable for our grandson and we couldn't be more grateful. Thank you captain Ronnie!
