I was almost thrown off by the many reviews on here about long waits and not being able to get on the water taxis, etc. Well....I asked the person I bought the ticket from before I purchased. They informed me that only on days with huge volumes of people like July 4th or parade days or marathons and the like were the water taxis so full you couldn't get on. They said it would be no issue. They were right. plenty of room and easy to see. The inside was air conditioned which came in handy on the 90 degree day and it didn't matter where anyone sat. the captain moved the boat around so every side could get a good picture of the statue of liberty. nice way to see many sights

We were lucky enough to have a "super moon" the night we took our cruise. The weather was beautiful so we could see for miles. The cruise took us pretty close to the Statue of Liberty for pictures and the staff offered to take our pictures. The director of the cruise was a bit cheezy but it didn't bother me. My only complaint is that we didn't get a seat on the upper deck (outside). Be sure to get there early enough to be in the front of the line. We were able to go out on the front deck for picture when we got to the Statue of Liberty so that was very nice.
