How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It started off just great, nice people, friendly faces. As we left NY, the guide described the different locations that make up NYC and pointed out landmarks both on NJ side and NY side. We left near the heliport and saw Governor's Island and the Statue of Liberty and passed beneath the GW bridge. However, the "nature walk" was very steep to climb and most passengers did not realize that footwear was important and heels, etc. were a no-no. Also, because other boats deboarded, and some drove, the festival was extremely crowded and reaching any kind of food was impossible. It appeared more like a flea market on the mountain (not the fault of Seastreak). We arrived back slightly late, which generally would not have been a problem.
