this was a great way to spend a hot summer night! i went with 4 other people and we really enjoyed ourselves. the smithereens are a great band--really tight--and seeing the manhattan and jersey skylines at nighttime was truly majestic.
the circle line is by no stretch a luxury cruise, but it's upbeat and the crowd is fun. uncomfortable seats, but i stood most of the time.
the 2 downers were that the area where the band played was super hot and semi-enclosed. camera, audio and video crews ate up most of the space, too, so band sitelines were rough. but i understand they need to keep the sound more contained in there. other bummer was the outside PA speakers were not turned on, so you couldn't hear the band as well in the outer deck.
none of that really mattered, though--there were monitors set up, beer was accessible, and the crowd kept their head.
i would do another rock the river cruise if i liked the band!
