This is a must see trip! An hour of fun and sights and adult beverages. Love the NY themed music as we sailed past Lady Liberty. My only suggestion would be shade while waiting to board. We got there an hour early and standing in 90 degree heat with no shade was rough. Otherwise a fun cruise

A quick ride around the Statue of Liberty. It was just the right length. It would be good if the boat had more outdoor space, as the indoor space was not where travelers wanted to be. We had a spot on the back deck by the rail which was the place to be but there is no seating, and not enough outdoor space for all. If the boat's windows were open people could have been indoors and still had a decent view. The Magestic Princess needs to make sure her windows are all open for these sight seeing trips.

I was visitng NYC and wanted to take my son on the Statue of Liberty Ferry ride. I had to call CS and spoke with Arieann. She was great! She was professional, helpful, very attentive to my needs and kind! I so appreciate her attitude! During this day and time, good customer service seems to be a thing of the past but Arieann was a pleasant surprise! Thank you again!
