Great cruise, we circled the whole of Manhattan and went close to Statue of Liberty. Dave provided great commentary and insights. Perfect way to spend the afternoon seeing the skylines of New York and New Jersey.

What a great way to see the NYC skyline by day. We took the tour up the river past the Statue of Liberty as we received free tickets with our hop-on, hop-off bus tour.

Best of NYC Cruise is the only one that circumnavigates Manhattan Island, so you will miss out on most of the East Side.
