"Classy Elegant Boat Tour With Spectacular Views"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 12, 2019 NEW
The boat tour met my expectations. The performers were great. The food was better than I expected. The views were amazing and beautiful. It did rain and snow some during our tour but the views were still nice from inside the boat. We did go outdoors for a few minutes here and there to take some photos. I enjoyed dressing up and wearing a cocktail dress as recommended. At first, I was a little disappointed with our seats. I paid for a window seat which I was given. But we were not in the same room as the band. Luckily the manager was able to move our seats and still give us a window seat. If you want to be closer to the band request the Aurora room when you make your reservation. When I called to make my reservations, I was concerned that they would seat other people at the same table as us. They assured me that would not happen. So even though our table was a table for 4, they did not seat anyone else with us. I took my mother on this tour for her 70th birthday. The manager presented her with a bouquet of flowers. And we both had a seat next to the window. Being a Sunday night in March, the boat was not filled to capacity. There were a variety of demographics there. There were mostly couples but also some families with small children, some groups of 8, and even some solos. Overall, I was very happy with my experience.

"Awesome lunch cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 06, 2019 NEW
We went on a lunch cruise with Bateaux New York the day after Christmas 2018. It was an awesome experience. The staff were great, the food was great and the views were just stunning. It was a beautiful winters day so we were very lucky with weather. I get sea sick at the slightest rocking of any boat but on this one I was fine. It was nice and smooth. We floated near the statue of Liberty for about 10 minutes so we could all get good shots. Would highly recommend his cruise

"Worth Every Penny"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I spent a lot of time researching a dinner cruise in New York City for me and my mom for her 75th Birthday. I'm talking hours of research. Every site said this was the best cruise but it was a little above my budget. I decided to "bite the bullet" and reserve a cruise. I'm so glad I did. We had an unforgettable experience that was worth every penny. In fact I would even pay double the price for what was offered. Next time I visit New York I will definitely return. I won't spoil any surprises, other than to mention that if you are celebrating a special event they will likely have something along the way. Oh, and the food!!! This was our first trip to New York and we were not expecting such a high calibur food experience. This cruise kept up with the theme and exceeded it! This is not your typical wedding buffet food, it is actually top of the line, exceptional cuisine. I cant thank them enough for the trip of a lifetime!
