Memorable Experience
Manoj_K, Jan 2024
The dinner experience on board the Bateaux was very nice. The service, ambience, sailing time, music were great. We were not satisfied with quality of the food especially the mains and desserts, none the less the starters were great and so was the staff. The scenes from the boat especially during the later part of the sail were breathtaking - the night view of New York, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge were amazing.
Chic, fancy, relaxing atmosphere

Superb cruise, great food, lovely environment, excellent views of the City, an evening well spent. Our waitress, Julia was excellent.
Flight was cancelled and couldn’t fly . Viator doesn’t care still Lost $1000 tickets and Viator does not care
Virginia_C, Dec 2023
Our flight to NY was cancelled due to bad weather in NY. We called Viator to let them know and request a credit for future use. They completely ignored our call and bounced us around telling us different stories. They told they weren’t the ticket issuers, that we needed to send an email, that they are a third company. We sent an email and no one ever responded. Ultimately we lost the $1000 we had paid for 4 tickets. I will never buy another trip through Viator. They are irresponsible and don’t care about their customers. ZERO customer service.
Beautiful boat, views. Dress warm and don’t have intolerances to any foods!!
Sally_J, Dec 2023
The boat was beautifully decorated and the entertainment perfect. The staff were attentive and helpful. Views were amazing. I felt let down a little by the meal as having informed them I was gluten free and citrus intolerant they had not planned for it. So no bread roll. One choice of starter -salad! Main meal choices limited to some of the options without sauces. They then bought me main course with sauce which I started eating without realising then complained. I then got revised plain chicken main course without some of the vegetables. Only desert option was fruit which was dismal. I did get a free glass of wine and a rose which was nice. But for price I paid meal was poor. It was also chilly which was uncomfortable

From $174.89
