It's a great concept, but not worth what we paid. It's definitely 5 stars if you like seeing old industrial docks and warehouses . If you were expecting to see any of the other beautiful sights on the Hudson River (like us) you will be very disappointed.

We were offered the opportunity to take the cruise through our Parent's weekend package with through Siena College. It was a wonderful time. I must admit when I saw rain in the forecast I was a bit nervous but the lower and middle deck are completely covered and heated (cooled in summer). We were given a discounted rate but after... More

I had my wedding on the Dutch Apple Cruise, and it was perfect! The staff are so helpful and try to make your day wonderful. I have a disabled father, and they accommodated him in so many ways and went way beyond what they had to. I would recommend this boat for a party or a wedding, and my husband... More

This is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, cruising on the Hudson River. We went on Wednesday, July 27, 2014. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and the entire staff was pleasant and accommodating. The entrance fee of $17.95 is very reasonable for a 1 1/2 hour boat ride. While the sights of the run down Port... More

We have been wanting to cruise the Hudson for a while and were not disappointed. Our guide came out to talk with us on deck, with her microphone but we could all hear her quite well. She provided a running commentary not only on historic tidbits but pointed out everything from ocean going ships to eagles, both mature and immature.... More

I've been on the Dutch Apple several times. I love the peacefulness of cruising the river and looking at the scenic views and the homes on the river.

River traffic was fascinating (barges, freighters and dozens of tugboats)! Lady tour guide was really knowledgable and was great at pointing out eagles (saw 4 of them!) Highly recommend.!

We had my sister’s birthday with friends & family on the Dutch Apple Cruise yesterday and can’t say enough about how nice the cruise was. I have lived in the Albany area all my life but I learned things that I never knew about the area along the river from the narrator on the cruise. Seeing the wildlife along the... More

I went on a sightseeing cruise last December and felt in love with this experience. What an enjoyable trip! Fall leaves were beautiful and we got to see an eagle! Boat was very clean, I would definitely come back to do this again and recommend it to my friend.

My retirement party was held on this boat. It was a great time. We cruised for 3 hours. I would have preferred 3 more. Fun was had by all. We hired a DJ who played what was requested. Food was catered by Nicole's of Albany. They are the usual caterers. The food was out of this world. Everyone raved about... More
