Did the brunch trip. The wait staff did not guide the people to start only on one side of the buffet so it was chaos going in two directions. No labels for the food, and the food was average. The cruise was enjoyable but not worth the price.

My husband and I went on World Yacht for our anniversary dinner. The service was attentive throughout the evening and the staff asked if we were celebrating a special occasion which they noted and later brought over desert with a candle on it and took photos of us which we thought was a nice touch. The views of the city... More

My wife and I were in New York for a week. We hoped for a wonderful dinner cruise on World Yacht at Pier 81, but were very disappointed. The wait staff were disorganized and didn't seem to know what to do. We had purchased a beer and wine package, but no one came to talk to us or offer to... More

Our first trip on World Yacht Dinner Cruise was a disaster. We were sold tickets for the Adventure Cruise but ended up on a boat with two private parties, our party of 4 being the third "private party" for the night (and the third wheel). On the next business day, I called customer service to complain about the awkward position... More

Our yacht was supposed to leave at 12:30, we did not leave until 12:55 but still can back at our expected time. We lost half an hour with no explanation. The food is nothing special at all, and was an open buffet that was completely unmanaged. Overall, I expected more out of it. They should lower the prices because it's... More

We spent a lovely afternoon aboard the World Yacht. It was the perfect way to celebrate a special birthday with family members. The buffet brunch was plentiful and tasty. The DJ played a wide variety of music and took requests. All of our guests had a spectacular time. We were fortunate the weather was excellent so we could enjoy the... More

I booked this trip with my now Fiancée due to the fact, I wanted to propose as we were going under the Brooklyn Bridge with the bright lights of the New York City Skyline in the background. The Yacht (Duchess) was fantastic. If you want to cruise the Hudson in style, this is the boat you want to do it... More

My husband and I took this diner cruise for our anniversary and I have to say, it was very good. The route was beautiful. We got to enjoy the sunset and beautifulness of NYC from the outside. The diner was excellent but the drinks were a bit too expensive and the beers were not cold. What I didn't understand why... More

Brilliant! Excellent food on board a great yacht taking you on the Hudson River between Manhattan and New Jersey. Sites include Manhattan by night when all the building lights blaze out across the bay and on the third pass we got close to the Statue of Liberty all lit up. The decks are great viewing places to take pictures and... More
