    This was the most relaxing part of my trip to NYC. The staff was wonderful and the views were breathtaking. I would encourage this trip for everyone. We were on the last voyage at 9:45 (in August) and the night views were extraordinary!
    Great Experience with Friends

    Shannon was such a great hostess to us, she seemed genuinely enthusiastic about her job and wanted to give us the best possible experience she could.
    Rude, had to deal with, money completely lost
    Nicole_B, Jul 2023
    Our flight to New York was cancelled (rebooked and cancelled again) and we couldn’t make it for the City Lights and Skyline Cruise. In the middle of all the chaos, I called the company to explain my situation. The man was rude, didn’t offer any type of rebooking at a later date, so all money that I paid for this was completely lost. Worst experience ever, what waste of money, and definitely no customer service at this company. Would not recommend.

    Great crew and experience! Friendly and beautiful scenery of the skyline. Was the perfect first night for my mother that was visiting NYC. Inside is clean and cozy.
    Good experience!
    Diana_L, Apr 2023
    Great service and crew members the boat it’s so well organized and kept together. Cozy environment convenient number of guests and perfect for a night in the City. My only complaint is the awful taste of the wine! It says a drink is included but options are limited to beer, wine or champagne. Please order beer the wine was terrible! Also if you go with minors instead of a drink they’ll get a soda. If you want to get a cocktail you’ll need to pay for it. In all it was a nice experience! I’ll do it again for sure!
    Amazing experience!...
