It's beautiful just around sunset time .the boat actually stops right in front of the statue of liberty so you can take pictures and go outside on deck and enjoy the view ,they have option for cocktails,the staff is friendly ,you actually feel like you're on a much higher end outing for the price you're paying,plus one hour and a half is the perfect amount of time ,not too long and not too short.I highly recommend it for family parties or get together.

It was amazing to get out on the water! The boat was clean, everyone was well-spaced out, and the crew were friendly and helpful. We even had our own table that we didn't share with other guests. The weather was so wonderful we spent almost all of the cruise out on the deck! Seeing Lady Liberty with the sun setting in the background was just delightful. You can't take food or drinks onboard but my friends and I had a picnic in the park nearby, which was actually perfect!

I cannot recommend the Sunset Cruise highly enough. Three of us, all seasoned travelers, thought it was almost a 'transformative' experience. We had excellent fall weather - but it would have been aa amazing any time. You cannot beat the scenery or the experience. The boat is perfect - a retro design, but all brand new and built with beautiful woods. It's an inspiring way to see the City - and one of the great harbors of the world. The crew are first class in every way. Tell the crew thanks for a truly magical experience!
