"Memorable Christmas Dinner on board of Bateaux NY"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 02, 2020
What can I say? It was a memorable experienced for both of us! All provided on a really High level - hospitality, food, music, beverages, the ship itself, tables composition and of course - evening NYC panorama out of the ship's windows - Brooklyn Bridge, line of NY skyscrapers, Liberty statue... I suggest you to forget budget limitations for this very special dinner and choose the window table (for the extra pay; only for you and your partner with enough space to seat in comfort, put your camera on the top and speak normally, not wisper), to order (in advance only option!) big (fresh) seafood plate (if you like it; sorry I'm forgot the name of the meal but you can refer to web site directly; this meal is very limited on board) as well as choose from options of included alcocol drinks presets accompanied your meals. It's quite expensive but memorable and nice experience for the very special occasion! LET'S Enjoy!..

"New Years Day cruise"

What a way to start 2020 The boarding could’ve been better in that there was little direction of what to do but once on board it was superb. We paid extra to have seats next to a window and also at the front of the boat - well worth it. Little til to our waiter and he ensured we never ran out of a drink. The food service, again could’ve been better in that there was little direction as to when who should go up. I ended up jumping the queue as it wasn’t “our turn”. However no one batted an eye lid so no harm done. Some great views of nyc and back to manhattan just before 15:00. Well worth the money and given the chance, would definitely do it again! Thank you bateaux!

"Fantastic views"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 14, 2019
Fantastic views of the New York skyline and Statue of Liberty. However, for the price paid there were a few negatives. One of the main meals, whilst very nice, was actually rather cold. After dinner the only tea they had was some ginger thing that should not be classed as tea. Finally, the toilets were deplorable. At the start of the night the smell would make you gag and by the end both were completely out of order! Overall, the atmosphere on board and the views made for a memorable night. Dinner cruise on 07th December 2019.
