Just get past the rather mediocre food. It was typical boat food. The ship is pretty clean and very stable. They do a great job of pointing things out and there are many photo opportunities. The crowning view is the stop at the Statue of Liberty where they give you a couple of different views and plenty of time to... More

This was our 1st river cruise on the Hudson. We have been to New York many times for plays and shopping. But have not seen New York like this before. 2 of our friends had invited us to celebrate their wedding that day Aug 12th. Of course I was the last one board due to traffic at the Lincoln tunnel....

This was a wonderful time...seeing the sights of New York from the water at night (mostly). The food was great, served in fine dining style. It was also very relaxing being on the water, and with the food service being very leisurely, it was a relaxing evening. Two reasons for the 4 star rating instead of 5: 1) the ladies... More

Spectacular views, overall well worth the money for a special night. We had a beautiful night with perfect weather. Food was tasty (not great), service and drinks were good as well. The dining area was nice but spent most of the time on the top deck which is where you want to be, comfortable seating up top and a nice... More

From Dallas to NYC, this cruise was chosen for a birthday dinner! It was by far the best NY experience we had. The staff was great! The manager Yolanda, made sure we had everything we needed to have a great time, from the time we set foot on the yacht to the last step off the pier, she made it... More

My husband and I finally decided, after 30+ years of living in NYC, to take a sunset dinner cruise; we selected this one as he had been on it for a company party two times, and loved it both times. From arrival, everything was perfect -- our well-situated table, the excellent food choices, to our very friendly (but not overly... More

We went on the Duchess cruise for my birthday and it was a fantastic evening. The service was great, with the amuse bouche and starter served pretty soon after sitting at the table. We arrived around 5.45 thinking the boat would depart at 6pm but it didn't actually leave until 7pm so we could have come later. As a result... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
