We booked an evening cruise with music,buffet and a chance to see the sights and Manhatton skyline from the water. Upto the Brooklyn Bridge area and back near the Statue of Liberty. A good way to see the city from a different aspect

This was probably the best part of our 10 day New York tour. We boarded the boat about 630, cast off was at 7 and dinner served shortly thereafter. It was an excellent dinner buffet. Teh service was exceptional and our waitress, Sara, was very attentive. The cruise, however, was the best part. IT was a beautiful night and we... More

Spent $99 + tax and surcharge of approx $30 + approx $35 to reserve window seating. Oh, yes, I also wanted a picture so spent another $20 in advance. So among the five of us, we spent about $800. At this price, we expected good ambiance and excellent food and service. Any by the way, my mother (late 60s) was... More

My husband and I took the dinner tour. The food was not impressive. Based on ads, I was expecting gourmet. I would put the food at an average hotel conference center. We got great pictures of the skyline, Statue of Liberty and the Freedom Tower. Lizzy was a very attentive and fun server. It rained before the tour started so... More

Our evening surpassed my expectations. We had a Sweet 16 Soiree for my daughter with 20 of her friends.. The evening was well-paced with time to eat leisurely, see the beautiful sights of NYC and dance up a storm. The staff --especially our server Karesse--made my daughter feel very special and our every need taken care of with a big... More

She assisted me along the way ,by making me comfortable to go through with doing the trip.I was very nervous about going forward until I met Ms. Cabrera,so I closed my eyes and gave it... More

We decided to do the lunch cruise last minute and got tickets right before the boat departed. It was fun, good value compared to how much money you would regularly spend in a restaurant in NYC. Food was your regular buffet food, the highlight was delicious new york steak that they gave out in little boxes (I almost missed it!).... More

Spirit Cruise New York (Pier 61 Chelsea Piers) is an amazing experience. Luxurious ship (just recently renovated with a ballroom style), great food, very nice staff providing excellent service. The cruise itself is breathtaking and very scenic, taking you past significant landmarks like the World Trade Center, Battery Park, Ellis Island, Liberty Island and Statue of Liberty, etc. Views are...
