This was one of our favourite activities we did in NY. The boat was bigger than anticipated and the food and service was spot on ! This was the brunch tour and it was a lovely 3 course meal with unlimited mimosas (we all came off the boat quite tipsy). The dj was a great addition too! All the staff were fantastic and Mickey who was our waiter deserves a special mention as he was fab. Thank you. I would definitely recommend this boat trip and if/when I return to NY I will be re-booking.

This was a beautiful experience! I was in New York with a friend for a girls weekend. We had so many things we wanted to see. This dinner cruise allowed us to see some of the top items on our list. The ambiance is amazing. The food was delicious. The piano and vocalist made it memorable. You will not regret the decision to book this. I would do it a second time without hesitation.

Ww really enjoyed our harbor dinner cruise around Manhattan. The music was delightful and our dinner was very good. The staff were very attentive and courteous. The only suggestion would be that more narration regarding the identification of landmarks would have been helpful to us. We would definitely recommend this harbor dinner cruise to others wishing to experience the New York skyline at night.
