      Kimberly O, May 2017
      Compared to the chaos of Time's Square, this was a good option. The view of the fire works is wonderful, but it was about 12 degrees outside. We also had to deal with a near fight, as folks were drinking too much. Still fun however and if you happen to be in NYC on New Year's, it's a good deal.

      John D, Apr 2017
      We had so much looked forward to this trip and in the end queued up for over 1 hour to get on the boat,to be extremely disappointed with the whole excercise. The boat was over full and whilst the view of New York from The Hudson was spectacular - there was nothing happening on board the boat. Some hand out food was just average. Midnight came and midnight went with no Count Down or fanfare @ Midnight. Fireworks commenced away to our left 3 minutes before Midnight and @ Midnight other Fireworks started about 10/15 kms away @ least and were average @ best. A very packed boat with a very high price and no where near the value espoused or promised.

      Even though we purchased tickets for a specific date, when we got to the meeting point there tons of people there and we still had to stand in line about 30 minutes. We were then told it's first come first serve and the bus was full and we would have to come back 'tomorrow'.

      Kathy R, Jan 2014
      It was overpriced, the food was cold and scarce; lines were long for the bar and seats were very hard to come by. The windows fogged up so much it was not possible to see the sights, which was the whole point of the trip. I would not take this trip again nor would I recommend it to anyone. Also, you really should provide bus transportation back to central locations in the city. There are NO cabs to be found after the cruise, and we had to walk back to our hotel. Obviously you know there are no cabs at that time of night on New Year's Eve, and you should either tell customers that or provide a bus.

      Genelle B, Jan 2014
      This tour was OK. We had a great time being on board and the sights were amazing. There were not enough chairs for everyone to sit down inside and there were not enough appetizers, either. All that my boyfriend and I got to eat was one mini-dumpling each. With less passengers aboard this would have been much more fun!

      We had a fantastic night. Would definitely recommend it. The only bad thing was the length of time it took to get served at the bar but everything else was fabulous!

      Gordon M, Jan 2014
      The cruise itself was amazing, the views of NYC, the Statue, the fireworks, the drinks - all perfect! Wrap up warm though as it is pretty chilly out there and it took us almost an hour to board. Good value for money and I would recommend it :-)

      James M, Jan 2014
      Great way to spend new years, had to line up with my Viator confirmation to get a ticket first which took some time, boarding several boats took a while as well which was time out in the cold and not spent drinking, once on the open bar was great and we'll stocked, music was average.

      Ashok R, Jan 2014
      I do not recommend using Circle Line NYE cruise! It was extremely cramp inside the ship with little room to move. If you are waiting in line for drinks, you'll be blocking passengers to look out of the boat and few exchanges of words will happen. If you're hungry, cold chicken wings will be availab

      Juergen K, Jan 2014
      Due to cold weather conditions the boat was too crowded - too many sitting inside. So it took some time until people got into party mood. All in all okay.

      Matteo G, Jan 2013
      My husband and I had a wonderful new year's eve. The firework at the statue of liberty was incredibly beautiful, the atmosphere on board really great. It was nice that the let us board one hour earlier so we did not have to wait in the cold. Drinks and music were nice, but we did not like the food.

      Liam M, Jan 2013
      Excellent choice especially getting away from Times Square area on Hogmanay! The only comments that I would make would be about the food - could have announced when ready! Music- speakers on outside deck would have been good. Overall excelllant night and a great way to bring the New Year in!

      well organised, a good alternative to Time square!!!!!!! You can eat and drink, the music was great!!!!!!!!

      david s, Jan 2013
      This trip is not for the older person. It is aimed at a younger generation. The disco had a monosalabic beat and New Year came and went in a flash. a quick verse of old lang syne and back to the beat. Fireworks , the boat was bow on so making it hard to see the display. Not a event to repeat.

      Christine Jean D, Jan 2013
      Arrived early and were boarded promptly, having extra time cruising. There were lots of people on board, line up for the bar was lenghty. We wondered why there were a couple of under 18s on board, when it was advertised as an over 18 cruise. The weather was good and the fireworks excellent.
      The New York sky line and fire works...
      Carol P, Jan 2013
      The New York sky line and fire works at the Statue of Liberty were spectacular five star. However the disco was too loud and played some obscene songs. The food was sparse and there was an enormous queue for the bar. The DJ did not start the New Year count down until five secs before New Year so the build up was somewhat lost. I think the champayne was wine and lemonade and this was not given to us just left on the table for us to collect and was unanounced.I accept that on New Year things are a bit more expnesive but I would have paid more for better quality food, drink, entertainment and seating with a table I wasn't expecting the seating to be in rows. In short the idea, lcocation and fire works were absolutley amazing. The food,drink, facilities and atmosphere was basic.

      Miss J B, Jan 2013
      This was a superb way to spend New Years Eve, it was our first time in New York for New Years and experienced some of the craziness of Times Square, but this was a much more relaxed, fun way to enjoy. Superb value for money, as much food and drink you could wish for (not to mention the warmth - which you don't have on Times Square!). Staff all very nice and friendly.

      Parris M, Jan 2013
      My boyfriend and I had a great time! Would certainly do this again and next bring a few more people along. The more the merrier! Great time!
