Maitre D' Seating
How was your experience?
This dinner cruise was wonderful from start to finish. The welcome we received was warm and professional. The cruise began with upbeat live music--very talented performers. The serving staff was very positive and could not do enough to please us. The route was first, up the west side up to the cruise terminals, then south around the southern tip of Manhattan up the east side under the Brooklyn Bridge up to about Canal Street. Then we went down to the Statue of Liberty. There was plenty of time to spend out on deck enjoying the breeze, take in the views and take photos. Every seat on the boat has a wonderful view. The food was well prepared, tasty and arrived at the table hot. Their drinks menu is extensive. The crowd was distinguished and pleasant, varying in ages from the 20s through 80s. I would recommend this cruise to anyone celebrating an anniversary or birthday who likes the water, the views and wants a leisurely dinner. I would also recommend it to visitors to New York who want to enjoy the city from a different perspective--the rivers and harbor. Five star, no question!
