I enjoyed this ride although it was kind of crowded. The weather was not that nice so not many people were outside because it was too wet and cold making it pretty crowded inside. However I can see how if it were a nicer day it would have been...continued

Because my friends and I loved the cruise last time we decided to go again. Even if the waterfalls are no longer there, it's definitely a nice way to have a good time out in the city. Cheaper than a night out on the town. Again drinks are not...continued

My husband and I had a great time. We got a terrific deal on the tickets through Goldstar ($10 each). The weather was perfect and the sun was setting toward the end so it was beautiful. There was just the right amount on people on the cruise so...continued

The tour was nice; however, it was crowded and noisy! I wasn't sure what to expect, but it seemed this was just the warm up to let everyone off to keep drinking after the fact. The DJ was mediocre, but all in all, the nicest thing about the...continued

This is a short cruise around downtown Manhattan and other parts of Manhattan & NJ. You get to see the waterfalls under the Brooklyn Bridge. The cruise was nice, but the boat rocks too much. This is a cruise for people who like to go on...continued

We didn't actually go out on the Zephyr because the boat needed repairs. Instead, we were given the option of taking the Water Taxi. I accepted the offer and was really pleased with Goldstar for doing their best to accommodate those of us who...continued

It was an enjoyable sunset cruise around the south end of Manhattan. The happy hour special was a six bottle bucket of Corona for the price of five (no big deal). However, each passenger was given one free drink ticket, and that wasn't expected...continued

My friends and I went the night before Hurricane Irene and my goodness the water was choppy! But it was the literal calm before the storm and it was a gorgeous evening with a beautiful sunset. Not too crowded, no obnoxious kids, nice music, nice...continued

Drinks were a decent price - the best deal is the bucket of 6 for $20.00. The trip went around to see "the Waterfalls" and the Statue of Liberty - had a nice night for it - got a bit cold once the sun set - so bring a jacket.

This was the most refreshing way to end the day that I have ever experienced. The ship was clean and the staff was courteous. I was not aware of the fact that the ship was soo spaceous inside. The music was a good mixture. Free drink was an...continued

It was a very pleasant ride and we got to see all of New York from the boat. The atmosphere was pleasant, the music very upbeat and the beer was super cold!
If you're looking for something different , I would recommand it!

This could be a great time if you have the right crowd. Our Happy Hour cruise was lightly attended. Each ticket comes with one free drink ticket for a domestic Beer or well drink. A nice $5 savings. The boat is Big & clean. Bars on 1st & 2nd...continued

The free drink was a nice perk. It was good for a domestic beer or a well drink. They had a nice selection of beers so that was fine with me. The $20 buckets of Corona were clutch. The bartenders were quite nice and pretty fast considering we were...continued

I went with 2 girlfriends after work on a Friday, and it was a fantastic way to end a long week at work. The crew was very friendly, the music was good, and the views were amazing. Highly recommended!

A group of us celebrated my husbands 30th birthday on the boat! It was GREAT! The boat is big, new and nice. We were NOT crowded at all! As others have suggested, its best to go with friends.
The music was fun - (it is not a tour). It is 90...continued

Full Disclosure: I got the GS deal. It was pretty aggravating, start to end. The Circle Line window was actually closed and I had to pick up my tickets at the Water Taxi booth. So, off on a bad foot already.
An appalling, awful atmosphere...continued
