Very nice afternoon and informative about the Hudson Valley history. Pleasant captain and crew. Boat could use a little sprucing up- needs a facelift. The main floor has tables and we could see that a buffet must be set up at one end. Plastic tablecloths look like they should be replaced. Worthwhile cruise, enjoyable and relaxing.

It was a lovely day for a cruise on the Hudson. The staff were friendly and quite helpful to my mother-in-law and aunt who both have difficulty navigating uneven terrain. We got there a bit early so that we had seats on the upper deck by the railing and so that everyone could be settled before it got busier. The... More

We really enjoyed our afternoon cruise on the Spirit of the Hudson. Free parking in the open lot a few steps to the boat. The open upper deck is so enjoyable on a beautiful summer day! Captain is very engaging and entertaining too. I recommend this affordable river cruise suitable for all ages. And we plan to do it again... More

They left early with us running toward the boat. Can't rate it beyond that. Gave them two stars because at least I didn't have to fight them over the refund

Very nice boat ride from The town of Hudson south. The trip took 1 hour 50 minutes and was worth the price. Had a great day. Say Eagles flying near the river. The captain/narrator was excellent. He was informative and entertaining.

We had been planning with friends to cruise the Rhine River this October, but it was not to be: The cruise line was in the process of downgrading its level of service, so our group opted for a different Rhine cruise company at a different time, specifically August. Europe in August? Not for us! Too crowded! No way! So, instead... More

Our family "reunions" in the Catskills every year, and we look for excursions to enliven our hotel stay. One of our members found the Hudson Cruises website, and we were delighted he did. Our family ranges in age from teens to 90's, and we all were impressed with the friendliness of the crew and the beauty of the river "up... More

We took the 2 1/2 hour cruise on August 17. My husband, daughter and her family (her husband and two boys - ages 4 and 7) were greeted warmly by the crew and welcomed aboard. The captain gave a timely, informative commentary throughout the cruise, concerning where the boat was going and the beautiful scenery. He obviously takes great pleasure... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this cruise. The captain gave a lot of information about the area. The boat was very comfortable and they do sell drinks and food on board. I am glad that I read how to find this place. It is behind the train station. There is a road just south of the train station that... More
