This Circle Line trip up to Bear Mountain and back is exactly as advertised. There is seating for everyone, inside or outside. Thee views of the Hudson River are spectacular, and the narration is helpful and not overbearing. Around 500 people make...continued

Beware- the cruise is 3 hours EACH way. It's a very long time to go out there to spend only 2.5-3 hours on shore.

The cruise itself was fine but the weather was a bit on the cold side- bring layers and...continued

We had a nice guided cruise up the Hudson River with comments from a professional guide. There were chairs for all of us on the upper deck and indoor the ship. Servers of coffee, beer and soda were very courteous and cheerful.

This event makes me giggle. We went last year and had so much fun being silly and drinking beer. I was happy to see that the crew on the boat were a little more informative this year as to where to go to find the Oktoberfest. Last year, it was...continued
