All we can say is do this cruise!!! Put it at the top of your list of things to do while visiting New York!!!
It was magical and was made all the best by our fantastic tour guide, Chris. He was so knowledgeable and entertaining and provided us with an array of information about the architecture, history and other fun facts about all the boroughs of NYC. We would definitely recommend this cruise and will be recommending it to all our family and friends who intend to visit NYC in the future.

We booked the 2.5-hour „Best of NYC Cruises“ Trip as the homepage says that it was the only tour completely circumnavigating Manhattan. This is a big fat lie: we turned around after an hour and had to watch the exact same things again and listen to the exact same pre-recorded information again. It was more than boring at the second time within an hour... We booked this tour to see and circumnavigate the Northern part of Manhattan, but did not see it. If you are looking to see the Southern part and the Statute of Liberty, you should take Staten Island Ferry (which is free!) instead!

We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your experience with us. We strive to make sure all guests leave with the most memorable experience. Unfortunately when the tide is high we are unable to fit under the bridges in the Harlem River as stated on our website and ticket windows. This posses a safety concern for our guests, and guest safety is most important to us. We do hope that you will give us another chance to change your opinion.

Best,
Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises

Cunard cruise 14 days leaving southampton. It was lovely. The food was very nice and ample choices. Recommend the Verandah restaurant. You have to pay but food amazing. Plenty to eat. Would advise get one to share as ample
. When docked in New York we went with the Macy's tour as wanted to be assured we would get back to cruise ship on time. You don't have to go to Macy's but it's quite central
and you know where to come back to. Would like to have seen some more of New York. But not enough time.

We booked this cruise after a coworker recommended it. The recommendation held up to be true. This night cruise is a great way to see and learn about NYC. Dave the guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip that much better, he really enjoys his job. If you are looking for scenic photos of many of NYC landmarks then you will want to do this night cruise. Amazing.

This was our first time in NY, and as we were only there for two and a half days we wanted to pack as much in as possible. I booked it the day before we left and looked at the Tripadvisor site for tips, I changed my mind from booking a longer boat trip and went for the Landmark Cruise. Really fab trip, it was (for us) just the right amount of time, took in all the main sights and we got our bearings as we went more of less straight from the plane to the boat. Great commentary and we had a fab day with the weather (the next day it rained!). We stood outside the whole trip (1.5 hours) and enjoyed every min. Would advise anyone on their first trip to do this boat ride. It was easy to book from the UK, got conformation straight away and a great welcome when we turned up at the dock.

Excellent view of the city. Fantastic stories by someone who has lived here for years. Daylight on the way out lets you see it all, on the return trip it's night and the city it lit up.
Beautiful! Would definitely recommend this cruise to tourist. The snacks and drinks are limited and very expensive but the cruise and commentary are worth it!

NYC is a beautiful city but to see it from the water in the fall is breathtaking. You get a great view a photo opportunities of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. My tip is getting there early and go to the open deck on the back of the boat and sit on the left hand side of the boat right at the back....best views and no one behind you for the perfect photo opportunities.

Great views but it was a cold day so we wanted to sit inside. The speakers were not working inside of the cabin and we could not hear anything that the guide was saying.

Also, they didn't ask for tickets or have any type of security when boarding.

The sound quality from the commentary was very poor, we could barely hear a full sentence, i was looking forward to this trip after having it recommended by a friend, in the end it was disappointing, halfway through the trip we were wishing they could stop and let us off

This was cool. We really liked it. The views of the statue were great as well as of the NY skyline. Our guide was very informative and pointed out all the interesting things along the way.
