  • We had dinner of the new year on the boat taking a view exceptions and a festive evening. Mounted on Board at 9 pm (Pier 81) open bar, buffet, departure of the tour at 10: 00 and return 1: 00 in the morning, just exceptional to see Manhattan lit up a cup a hand... Choose the buffet rather than sitting, expensive and "frozen" dinner. To do!

  • Left in the dark after not being able to actually cruise on the Hudson. I spent a lot of money to do this cruise, not because I wanted to have a quality dinner but I just wanted a nice tour on the Hud...  more »
  • Day 27 November I book at the price of € 720.08 a 4-course dinner with Fireworks, unfortunately day 29 December while staying in new york I had the flu with fever to 40 C°, we sent 2 medical certificates paid visits carried out at best clinic in new york, asking for a refund since I couldn't go to dinner, we were told: Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for our new year's Eve cruise under any circumstances. We hope that the guests feel better.

  • We went on the evening dinner cruise and as it was a special occasion decided to book the window seat and the unlimited drinks package at extra cost. It was great to see New York lighting up, the food was ok although I had to send my steak back as it was only just warm. The drinks service was slow which sort of cancelled out the unlimited drinks and the view would have been just as good from the inner seats as even sitting in the window seats means one of you has their back to the view. Recommend but go for the cheaper package.
  • I tagged along when my sister took my aunt from back home here for brunch. Food wasn’t that great. But view of the manhattan and liberty is great oh and unlimited mimosa(lol).
  • Fun time. Good food. Drinking wine out of tiny plastic cups not ideal.
  • DO NOT GO ON THIS CRUISE. I want to first be very clear that I came on this cruise for an anniversary. I have never written a bad review online and feel very strongly about warning people. Also, I have interned for a national food publication and my boyfriend and I have each worked in fine dining restaurants. We went on the cruise thinking we were going on the world yacht and ended up on the Hudson. Our cruise took off at 6:30 on Saturday, June 22nd. The only good thing was the views. It took forever for our food to come, I sent back my steak three times. I asked for medium rare, the first one was well done, the second was raw, the third was my first steak including the original cuts cooked more, so it was charred. My fourth was the second one cooked a little more. I decided just to eat that one. I ate one fingerling potato which was served with my steak and it was cold with a flavoring my boyfriend compared to propane. My boyfriend ordered the salmon which was extremely fishy tasting. One thing I have learned in traveling is that fish only taste fishy if it has been sitting in its own juices for a while. He ate about half of his fillet before giving up. Thru all of this we had to continuously call for our waitress, she never came over and acted apologetically or even asked if it was okay. To her credit, after the third steak, she had at least told me she already had the fourth one on the way. The mussels were okay, 3 of them weren't open. If mussels do not open while cooking you're not supposed to serve them until you open the shells manually and check to make sure they're okay. We also ordered the calamari which was lackluster. We each ordered a drink, I the rose sangria and my boyfriend a rye of the storm. He ordered a second of the same thing, it took 20 minutes to get and she brought the wrong drink in a completely different cup. He drank it anyway since it took so long to get it. Even when we did try to flag our waitress down, twice she looked at us then walked away. Now onto the food timing, it took around 30-40 minutes to receive our appetizers. As we were already heading back to the dock our main course had finally arrived. As we docked she finally brought us our dessert, chocolate ganache, and pecan cheese cake. A quick glance to my right I had seen a couple just getting their main course at 8:33 pm as we docked. The cheese cake was very flavorful and creamy. The chocolate ganache was disappointing, the inside similar to the texture of pudding. The whipped cream served with each dessert was also already partially melted. Now for the atmosphere, there was a stain on my chair and the restrooms had water everywhere with damp towels and the toilets were not cleaned. We had just stepped onto the boat and I had used the restroom immediately before sitting. The music was that similar to a club, people were dressed very casually with several guests in shorts and t-shirts. At the end, we discovered tip was not included in our $200 fee and had to pay an additional $56 for three drinks. We also came to find out most items on the menu were an additional fee on top of our $100 per person. The staff was friendly, our waitress, however, did not seem to care and was not attentive at all.
  • Horrible food. After the event I had severe food poisoning and was up all night and early morning vomiting hamburger meat. Others on the cruise got diarrhea afterward. Another friend of mine got a staph infection because some incompetent chef couldn't wash their hands or read a thermometer. Fix it.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
