Friendly staff, clean boat and bathrooms…only wished for better wine options. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The rest of the guests got fairly load, so it was difficult to hear him for about the second half of the tour.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The information was a mix of interesting and not-so-interesting. The boat was pretty, and one alcoholic beverage was complimentary. Excellent views circumnavigating Manhattan.

I decided to drag my friends with me on this cruise because I loved architecture, even though they didnt. The architecture part wasnt for them, as expected, but they enjoyed a beautiful boat with drinks and views nonetheless. I wish the new narrator lots of luck, fun and smooth sailing.

Nice cruise with one caveat
Alyson_M

Great trip around the island. Nice, clean boat with great staff. I liked that there weren't a lot of passengers so it didn't feel crowded. Only thing that was disappointing was that I asked the captain when we were going to see something in particular that my son really wanted to see and he said that the guide will point that out shortly. It was never mentioned....I felt dismissed. I let the captain know at the end and he just shrugged it off.

Horrible sound system - even after asking them to turn up the volume at the speaker was impossible to hear - extremely frustrating after what we paid and the time commitment- would never recommend to anyone

Even though it was raining we had a great time. Staff was wonderful and I didn’t realize you actually circle the entire island of Manhattan. You should add that fact to you literature.
