When you were able to hear over the crowd inside the tour guide was great! Need new up to date PA SYSTEM. It was unusually warm on the trip if you were inside. Would of helped if the had fans that would have at least moved the air or opened the operable windows.

Chris the guide was fantastic and knowledgeable. Give him a raise. We had about 100 passengers. Based on other reviews I read, having a full ship, diminishes the experience. 600 people with screaming kids would be way too much for those boats. Please consider this going forward.

The Statue of Liberty was...

The Statue of Liberty was the best. Being able to go outside of the boat. Lots of room on the boat.. the negative was that I could hardy hear the guide talking. The food and drinks on the boat were too expensive.. they wouldn’t let me bring my water on the boat, and then charged 4 dollars for a bottle of water. Ridiculous. Would not recommend. My kids were dying of thirst, but I would have had to spend 20 dollars to buy water for my family.
