We had a group of over 20 people gathered for a celebration on the World Yacht. Each person paid $122.13 for their ticket. We were told that the boarding would begin at 6, and sailing would start at 7 and end at 10. The day before the event the time was changed to boarding at 7 and sailing from 8pm... More

Took the 4th of July cruise with my husband. The boat was not as clean as I would have liked, in fact, some of the chairs were quite dirty. Service staff was amazing. Everyone was quite attentive and professional. This is the only reason I give 3 stars. Food was average; our steak was OK, but the salad left a... More

I was on the brunch cruise and found the food to be very limited in variety and what was there was not good. The eggs were premade; the chicken was cold, the lines were awfully long and time consuming not to mention that they run out of clean plates and we had to wait for the DJ to go to... More

We enjoyed our evening dinner cruise. The meal was very good. The menu was different than what was posted on line. The service was good but not personable. The evening views of the skyline of NYC and the Statue of Liberty were fabulous!

Honestly the food and service are just ok. Good enough. but for the cost of it the meal alone would not be worth it. But the views from the water of all of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty are worth it, especially as you return at night and it is all lit up. Very nice.

Myself and my partner had our wedding along with 12 members of our family and friends on the World Yacht on 20th June 2014. The experience was fantastic. We had the private ceremony on the top deck of the Princess Yacht for over an hour, and we also had our professional photographs during this time. The Princess Yacht is lovely... More

Overall this was a fantastic dinner cruise, however the manager aboard did leave a bitter taste at the end of the evening, I'll mention this later in the review. We boarded the ship at 18:30. The ship was really nice inside, we were served our glass of champagne and the band soon began to play. The band were really fantastic,... More

Overall I was not satisfied with the experience, the food was good, drinks was reasonable but the dj suck, he catered more to the young house music generation but he should have play a different selection of music, reggae, r and b, etc and he didn't...I sat for the 3 hours couldn't even dance and enjoy myself

One word- amazing!!!! I cannot say enough good things about this experience! We did the Adventure Cruise which is the dinner buffet cruise. The boat itself is beautiful with three levels. The buffet dinner was delicious! The salad, the pasta with the pesto sauce, the pork loin that melted in your mouth, the salmon,the beef, all of it was so... More
