My wife and I decided to splurge for the dinner cruise with a view. The best idea we had while visiting NYC. We got there a little early and were greeted by deck hands and were seated for dinner. We did buy the drink tickets with the meal and we enjoyed the champagne all night long. The dinner was great but the real treat was our server and the view of the skyline. We had a great server who even tracked us down on the top deck to refill our drinks, a little above and behind but really appreciated. We took numerous pictures of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty. The best way to see the NYC lights at night. The view was amazing. The whole experience was great. Oysters were amazing and desert was fabulous. Thank you for the great memories. We will do the dinner cruise again when we go back.

Our first night in New York and what a way to spend it - excellent food, free flpwong champagne and drink (we had the drinks package) and the most attentive and pleasant waiter we have ever experienced! (when up on the deck enjoying the view he left the eating area and came to find us to tell us our main course was being served!)
It wasnt a cheap night out but it was worth it - absolutely loved it. Thank you

On September 13 we cruised around Manhattan with dinner and drinks. The interior of the yacht was beautiful. We were even more impressed with the beautiful dining experience. The table, setting, and the dinner from beginning to end were all perfect. Our server was very helpful and was happy to keep pouring the champagne. I would highly recommend this.

I was a little apprehensive when I first saw the boat. It was a little plain and dowdy on first look but once inside all was different. Smart and clean with tables set with linen napkins, lovely silverware and glasses, it was every inch the top restaurant. The Champagne on arrival was a little sweet for me but it was topped up regularly, which was a nice surprise. Two set hors d'oeuvres courses preceded a good selection of starters, main courses and 3 desserts. The food was delicious and plentiful and well served by the professional waitstaff. The 2 hour trip went to The Statue of Liberty and back giving some superb views of the iconic monument and the Manhattan & New Jersey shorelines. Once docked again, you can stay on board to finish your evening until 10pm. For me, this was well worth the price of the ticket and I thoroughly recommend treating yourself to this experience if you can.

We visited as a family to celebrate a special wedding anniversary; greeted by a glass of champagne on arrival and two entree dishes before the 3 courses. We’d advised in advance we had a fussy vegetarian in our group and the company more than catered for her. The views of Manhattan at night and the Statue of Liberty were incredible, well worth the price for a beautiful evening

We booked this cruise through viator and were a little concerned at first. We arrived at the yacht and were really impressed. We showed our viator voucher and were escorted on to the yacht without any issues.

On arriving we were greeted with champagne. It was a lovely evening and took the opportunity to take photos on the deck. We were escorted to our table and the night started from there. From start to finish we were really impressed. Food was outstanding and the waiter was keeping a watchful eye over us ensuring that our drinks were continously topped up. This experience was the cherry on the top of the cake to round a fabulous 5 day trip to New York. We felt the cruise was a little pricey at first i.e. 278 dollars but we didnt come away disheartened and felt the whole experience was an experience to remember. Dont hesitate lifes too short book it and you wont be dissappointed. Great opportunity also to take night time pictures of the fabulous Manhattan skyline as well as the Statue of Liberty. A friend of ours suggested another cruise that was double the price and I am so pleased we didnt decide to do that. We definitely came away feeling that this experience was excellent value for money.

Three couples $1078.94 + 20% gratuity. Booked a dinner cruise, Friday 8/17 to say thank you to the ladies for putting up with our workaholic work styles. Booked with World Yacht but as we approached the ship we were told the actual ship World Yacht was booked for a PRIVATE party and we would be on the much smaller, less elegant ship, The Hudson. Food , drinks and service were okay, not high end. Men opted for unlimited drinks, bad choice as not all drinks are include. There is another list you can order the better drinks from. Muzak, no live band. Started sailing at 7 PM ended at 9. Pricing Below

There is a serving of Champagne and Canapés between 6pm and 7pm before the ship sails, so don’t be late. The Champagne glass was filled regularly. The food is very good and there are choices to suit everyone.
There is still a problem with the window tables with the person on the inside sitting with their back to the window. There is a disk jockey on the lower deck which was not very busy but the music is piped through to all the decks. The music will appeal more to the younger passenger but he did play Frank Sinatra when at the Statue of Liberty. The viewing decks are good with great views of the Statue of Liberty and the city lights. We were given a glass of wine each as we had been on the cruise a number of times before which was a nice touch. The below deck lounge is very nice and worth a visit after docking. We still hanker back to the old days of the live band and the dance floor on the dinner deck. A good way to spend an evening.

Food and service was very good and our waitress was just a doll. Extremely attentive to us and what we wanted her name was Elaina. One hiccup we experienced was that our description included open bar but at the end of the evening we were told that it only included beer and wine and not mixed drinks. While they stood their ground once we shared our tripadvisor app and description they corrected it. So enjoy an open bar until they update the site!!

My partner and booked the cruise for Saturday 5th May ,
Boarded about 18:40 for a 19:00 sailing.
Made to feel very welcome , booked inside table and was upgraded to window view . (Personally for me I would never pay extra for the window table as one of you has to sit with your back to the window.)
There are plenty opportunities to step outside for photos .
The meal it’s self was lovely ,better than expected !
We upgraded to all inclusive drinks , certainly got our money’s worth.
Live music played by a DJ all NewYork themed .
We stayed on for a few more drinks after the cruise was completed as it was a great refreshing atmosphere onboard
Fantastic night Highly recommend
