What a terrific 2 hours we spent on our fabulous night cruise. The boat was spotless and comfortable. Thanks to Mia our server for being so attentive. Huge credit must go to the gentleman who provided the incredibly interesting and detailed narration around the city. He made the trip enchanting and amazing and has a terrific voice to listen to. Thanks to all the staff. Couldnt recommend this trip more highly!!

It was spectacular to see the sites especially Lady Liberty at night, it is a must do. Also the narration was excellent and very informative.

The boat was large and able to accommodate everyone but the seating was terrible. You were given a hard folding chair to sit on and since it was raining the view from the window wasn't clear. I did notice that the side where the "premium" seats were located, the window had been cleared and perhaps some type of water repellent applied so their view was clear. We did have a great view of the statue of Liberty from the front deck of the boat even though it was extremely windy and the water was rough. This may have been a better outing in good weather but it wasn't very fun for me.

David, the guide was awful...we found some of his commentary inappropriate, negative and rude...I would not recommend this trip with him as a host

Overall an enjoyable experience. Some issues was the queue to get snacks and drinks was way too long and made it stressful to obtain food and drink. The servers were brilliant and very polite. The commentary on the journey was muzzled and very hard to hear for much of the ride. The bit I did hear was very good and informational. Some windows streamed up, very smooth ride but more can be done to enhance the experience .

The boat was nice and the tour guide excellent. But, we booked premier seating and when we arrived we were told that we were unable to sit together! So spent 2 hours completely apart on a trip that we were supposed to enjoy together! Also, they don't tell you how much the drinks are when the waiter comes round. Be careful, they are not cheap!!!

We purchased premier seating tickets and while we were able to skip the line, these seats turned out to be one section of the boat that was cordoned. Nothing different or special about the section. Premier seating does not even guarantee you a window. Floors were sticky and dirty. They tell you to download an app for other languages, but then the internet connection is not fast enough to complete the download. Also, beware of the gipsy taxi cabs located at the pier entrance. I don't know why the Circle Cruise Line allows them in there. Better to walk out to the main street to get a yellow cab.
