I have done another tour like this but on the boat Manhattan II and this was not up to par in my opinion. Way too many people, the other one gives you a complimentary drink and you had plenty of space. Not to mention other boat went up both the East and west side. The pier was beyond trashy and unorganized. I would tell all to do the one that leaves out of Chelsea pier any day over this tour. Too expensive for what space you are given.

Missed our boat

The ONLY reason I am giving only three stars is because we missed our cruise. New York driving is ridiculous and even though we left our hotel at 550 and gps said 30 minutes between no staff being able to tell us where pier 35 was and the parking cluster we ended up being 15 minutes late and missing our tour. So sad, but I'm sure it was beautiful!! And I will say Viator did fully refund our tickets so I appreciate that. I suggest planning on arriving an hour EARLY and then perhaps you will get there on time

Please make it easier for customers to find the location by providing a large sign that identifies Pier 35, and have a sign that states clearly viator Tours. There was no sign identifying if we were in the right location and we almost missed the boat. We kept getting erroneous info about the Pier. I think it would be more professional and a courtesy to ALL your customers to ensure they are informed about the exact location of the Pier and where they will be boarding. That would make the experience so much better. Please consider this seriously.

The boat never Showed up. Nobody sent me a cancellation notice. My night was completely ruined. Still can’t believe you’d treat paying customers like this. I want my $ money back and uber costs.

Magical Sunset Cruise

Unfortunately, the cloud cover prevented an actual sunset for us but it didn't matter because this cruise is simply a must do. The City Skyline pulling out was breathtaking! The water view of the Statue of Liberty was truly beautiful. The cruise itself was fun as it's a tall ship sailing with a bar and great tunes! The staff was great and the group was fun! We had an extra bonus with a fireworks display over The Brooklyn Bridge which was a nice bonus for my daughters Sweet 16! This is definitely worth the price and a totally fun way to see NYC from the water! The boat rocks a bit so I probably wouldn't recommend to anybody unsteady on their feet but for everybody else this is a must do!
