This was my first time booking through Viator. It was easy to book and really enjoyed the cruise. Location and Parking is biggest challenge. Parking can be hard to find. Limited food and seating available before departure, but there are some options. Our cruise began at 730. Were told to arrive at least by 7, started to line up for boarding at 7:15. they take a picture before boarding and you see it later with option to purchaseor can be purchased later online I think. You are given a card with information on it. During the tour, the guide shares a lot of information about a lot of building/sights. Just seeing the transition of the skyline is beautiful. The boats turns around at Statue of Liberty so every one can see clearly, which is nice. There are snacks on board for purchase as well. Really enjoyed this experience and would def. do again. Lots of photo opportunities and nice being on water and seeing the skyline! Worth every penny! Beautiful evening!

When we called 24hrs before to confirm they told us it started at 7.30pm which was a much better start time for the cruise. Plenty of opportunities to get good photographs. It was a really great experience and we were very lucky with the weather as there was a wonderful orange/pink and red sunset!
