With Covid restriction subsiding and nice weather developing, we spent a couple of days in the Albany area and found the entire trip to be wonderful. It is a beautiful part of the state and much more laid back than the metropolis of the Five Boroughs. Many recreational and sightseeing activities are still starting up in the area, and this particular cruise was only offered for one of the days we would be in the area. Thankfully, although there was the threat of thunderstorms, the weather held and at noon the sky was perfect and the Hudson River still. The triple-decker ship has was sparsely filled for this trip and we were able to sit at one of the 6 or 8 table on the top deck. About half are in full sun and the rest under the shade of a canopy, so arrive early if you want to be topside but under cover. There is plenty of space on the lower decks and much more comfortable if you don't like being in direct sun or wind. The second deck also features a food and beverage bar with a variety of snacks and drinks. We were sitting topside and the staff made multiple trips to take and fill orders - greatly appreciated. Prices were reasonable and the drinks and, in our case, pretzels were fresh and delicious. The cruise itself was relaxing as the boat made its way leisurely down the Hudson. The tour guide offered a running dialogue of commentary as we motored along. She pointed out highlights along the shore, located several bald eagles, and provided a good historical backdrop to the the settlements along the route. The narration was not particularly informative but I did learn a couple of things and it was generally lighthearted and entertaining. On the return trip, the tour guide put on some easy listening music and mingled with the passengers so as the answer any questions they had. The staff is extremely accommodating and very courteous and friendly. A couple of the younger passengers (who were bored with the tour guide's narration) were even invited by the captain to join him at his perch. It really made their day. In summary, it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Keep your expectations reasonable regarding how much sightseeing there really is and enjoy the time on the water. It is also reasonably priced - I visited the Dutch Apple website before our trip and received multiple discount codes to use online when booking. It was definitely worth visiting the site ahead of time.
