There are no bells and whistles to this ship or the sail so if that is what you are looking for it is great. I think twilight is the best because you go out in daytime, get to see a beautiful sunset (assuming nice night) and then watch as all the city lights come on and the bridges light up. The Statute of Liberty was especially captivating. Was not crowded which was nice. Full, it might be hard to find seats. Like that they let you bring food on board. Drinks are $9. Felt $ value good if you do it through discount site.
