How was your experience?
I had my sisters from overseas visiting NYC. I bought 3 VIP Pearl tickets and arrived at 6:30 pm to a long line of people waiting to start boarding at 7pm. Presented my VIP confirmation print out to the attending clerk who sent me back to the end of the line. No VIP treatment and the steam boat didnot depart from the pier until 7:55pm,besides we were charged $10 a plate for the buffet. The views and music were wonderful but that was about it. Very dissatisfied..!
