I went with a group of college students for dinner networking and it was a super fun experience! Everyone really enjoyed the view, food, dancing and had a great time! From the top deck you see the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, the Freedom Tower and Empire State Building! We also get to take a group picture before we board which we purchased later on the boat! Definitely great experience and will come back again next year!

This, along with Jersey Boys, was by far the highlight of the trip. Quickly seated, superb entertainment and all the staff were all extremlely polite & happy, which really does go a long way. Plus the food was absolutely gorgeous, as nice as anything that we had during our entire trip. Views of the skyline are absolutely breathtaking. Special mention to Margen, who really did seem to want to do anything to ensure that you have a great time, which you certainly will

The Spirit Dinner Cruise with buffet was on a very nice boat, and the food was good. The path the boat took through the Hudson and East rivers was excellent and the view of the Statue of Liberty was amazing. The service, however, was terrible. Our initial hostess was prompt and nice, but our server was slow and inattentive. Drink prices were high but that was expected. The boat had a "DJ" but they never mentioned anything about the sites we were going by, and did not even announce when we were nearing the Statue of Liberty, nor did they announce the names of the bridges as we went under them. Most people were curious and no one seemed to know. If we weren't already outside getting fresh air we might have missed seeing the Statue. Also, the "transportation partner" booking cars for pick up after the boat returned was very sketchy. We had to pay cash in advance and then the car was over 40 minutes late. Overall, this experience underwhelmed us, but small things could have made it so much better.

Excellent food, service and DJ. We could not ask for anymore. We would do it again in a heartbeat. The whole experience was fantastic. Great food and service. Nice dining area and dance floor with DJ. The absolute best part is going outside and seeing the breath-taking views of the city.

Leaving from pier 61 at 7.30 it was dark so the skyline of New York was well lit. Went under Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges and then down to Statue of Liberty to the accompaniment of good food and entertainment. Had a window table so the view was good. Would recommend as a way of seeing the sights.
