Pleasant day

We went with a group and we enjoyed our afternoon on the Hudson. The water was a bit rough but it was part of the fun. The lunch buffet on The Spirit of NJ was surprisingly good.

If you would like a dance club on the waters around NYC, this is perfect for you. We were part of a group of people from work who took a dinner cruise. The first half of the cruise was great, dinner was good and tasty and we enjoyed the scenery and conversation. After dinner was done the the dancing started.... More

My sons decided to treat my wife and I to a cruise for our 29th wedding anniversary. That was such a sweet gesture but everything turned out wrong thereafter. First, we had difficulty connecting with the reservation specialist to find out exactly where to go. The paperwork stated that we had to go to a pier in Manhattan only to... More

This may not be helpful to everyone as I went on an exclusive booking with 300 of my closest friends! A reward for the kids' hard work at a music camp and a successful concert. There is a long walk to the boat from the booking kiosk on floating docks. Watch your step. Friendly crew and a sail past the... More

We booked only three hours before boarding for the Dinner cruise. Still got a good table and was not too crowded. Food was nice, all you can eat, and desert was served at the end. We have seen the night view of the Statue of Liberty in a close distance. Everyone dressed up quite formally. Most people seem to book... More

I had experienced a boat ride on the Hudson River out towards the Statue of Liberty on a past visit to New York but this cruise on a summer evening with a buffet meal was exceptional. Moored on the New Jersey shore and with wonderful views of the Manhattan skyline seek this one out.

How incredibly relaxing, beautiful calm waters, the Lady of our Liberty standing proud in the harbor, music playing and kids being able to dance, play shuffleball, giant jenga and giant connect 4 with chess, also. Food is okay but really thats not what your paying for.

The cruise lasted a couple of hours and included a buffet dinner. The dinner was ok. Green beans had no seasoning at all and the macs and cheese had to much garlic. The herb chicken was good. Viewing the city from the top deck was nice. Was able to take numerous pictures of the Statute of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and... More
