Try and sit on the left-hand side of the boat for the best Manhattan views. First drink is free. The buffet snack was excellent.
The weather was Mild. I wore Jeans, jacket & flat shoes .
Do not park at the Pier since the rates are ridiculous. Several parking lots on the eastern side of the highway can provide more reasonable rates.
The other ships were not as nice and more crowded.
We were at a restaurant and running out of time so asked to take our food to go- the boat allows food to be brought on board
It's a smaller vessel than most of the other boat/cruise trips available, which makes it a more intimate experience that we thoroughly enjoyed, but the downside is that if you are prone to seasickness, then beware, because you will feel a lot more of the waves, especially from the wakes of others.

Not a boat where you have a meal, but it's only about an hour and a half.
Full bar. Only cheese plate or hummus dip available to purchase.
