    Stroll around Manhattan gives a good view of the city:from Bronx to the Battery Pack Park.In addition,the boat sails very close to the StatueOfLiberty.This excursion is good choice! Recommend it 👍

    Best way to see the Manhattan skyline & Statue of Liberty. Take the 2 hour tour & sit on the left side (port) to start. They let you walk around to take pictures. Drinks, snacks & restrooms onboard.

    It may be hard to get here but it's worth it. The cruises here are fantastic! You get spectacular views of the city all the time. Go on the Harbor Lights Cruise to catch the sunset 😍😍😍😍

    A good way to explore Manhattan and see the island from a different perspective. The tour guide was knowledgable and is very keen to give a tip or two about his city.

    Do the 90 min semicircle for great views of lower Manhattan and the statue. Leave extra time in your plans because it may last 2hrs! Well worth it! Included NYCpass, explorer pass, city pass, etc.

    Great way to see the city from the other point of view! If you want to see (just see) the Statue of Liberty, that's it as well - no need to take another trip!

    Tour host Malachy points this out as the money shot - view of bridges w Statue of Liberty and Manhattan. He narrated the two-hour crises- great!!!

    They'll tell you to arrive 45 minutes early, but if you want to get a good seat outside on a nice day, show up even earlier. The nice seats outdoors get snatched quickly.

    4th July fireworks cruise offered amazing views from the East River. However the "open" bar is limited and the tray passed hors doeuvres very hard to get.

    The 3 hour full cruise is great. Sit on the left or head outside to the front of the ship to get the best views of Manhattan.

    We went on the liberty cruise - around 1hr, taking in the sights from midtown to the southern tip of Manhattan inc the Statue of Liberty. The souvenir photo costs $25 however - what a rip off!

    Unless you love really loud music and dancing, avoid their ThirstyThursday cruise. Otherwise, a lovely way to see Manhattan via the Hudson.

    Harbor Lights Cruise or bust- gives you spectacular views of the island, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty just as the city starts to light up.

    Totally worth the experience with a New York Pass. Take the full 2.5 hour ride and see all of the island!

    If you pay the extra to sit in the premier seating be sure to get seats along the railing. Under the canopy the view sucks.

    Awesome views of NYC. The people watching isn't bad either. A great way to relax and see the sights

    Best boat tour ever! Be warned the credit card machine doesn't work. Bring cash if you want refreshments on the boat.

    This being the most patriotic month, get a close-up view of the majestic Lady Liberty on a 75-minute cruise. (Pier 83, W 42nd St at 12th Ave; 001 212 563 3200; ₤12-₤20. Sails 11am; 1pm; 3pm).

    The full circle line cruise is amazing; sit on the left hand side of the ferry for a better view of New York.

    Skip the 3hr cruise unless you REALLY want the full experience. Above the 160s on the East Side and then the whole loop back down the West Side there isn't much to see and drags.

    Do the 2 hr cruise and stand at the bow of the boat for great views and photos. Book tickets online to get discounts to other NYC attractions.

    Great! However, sometimes they try to go all the around the island and get stuck. My trip turned into 4 hours

    Top deck can get very chilly. Wait indoors till the return trip: top deck will have cleared out substantially: more space, better view, less time in the cold.

    The view is great, but it's hard to hear the guide speaking. Also, I felt tricked - my ticket said I could use the fountain drink upon a $10 purchase - but only once! It was not clearly stated.

    Amazing view of the skyline! I'm originally from Florida, so I can't wait to get back on the boat and water again this summer! - Shannon, Social Media Specialist @ CitySights NY

    For the best views on Manhattan, take the Full Island Cruise!

    Buy a cup for 7 bucks right before boarding and you get unlimited drinks and refills on the boat. Drinks are usually at least 4 dollars!

    This is one of the best ways to see NYC if you really want to see the skylines and learn the history. Very informative.

    Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises is a true New York institution and a "must-see" attraction while in town.

    Get here 1.5 hours early to sit on the outside deck, otherwise you're stuck looking through a window inside.

    If you have time to burn this is a good way to get the understanding that NYC is a group of islands and to see Jersey the right way...from a distance.

    I enjoyed the ride thanks to the guide. Say hi to David, he clearly is a man that enjoys his job.

    I kinda liked it. The tour guide was quite annoying. Always bragging upon his friend "Jerry" then the man who cleans the buildings and bridges all that jazz. The food was quite gross.

    Visit Circle Line on day one of your trip. Use it to scope out possible excursions for the rest of your visit to New York.

    Bring earplugs; the tour guide won't shut up but has nothing of value to say. Stay on the bow for the best view.

    It is suuuuuper cold during the cruise; bring hat, coat, scarf, jacket, pants and even gloves to avoid getting a cold. And kleenex for runny nose lol

    Oh well, that was awesome. Everyone should take the long trip around Manhattan. Stunning views.

    Take the 1.5 hour half circle cruise. It's plenty to see and almost too long. Please don't buy the $25 picture that the photographers make you take. What a rip off.
