The security guard was stupid and told us to join the line after we showed him tickets on mobile. Eventually got to ticket window and told to just board ship going past the guard. Big flashing sign says buy online avoid the queue. Apart from that small can beer is £10 on board, crisps £3 a normal packet. As we were in the line, no seats on top deck but we stood at rear end of ship and had a great time.

Nice big ship with plenty of room. There was food and drink available but we didn’t get anything so can’t comment on that. The trip to and from the island was nice even with the very cold and very windy weather. I do wish the windows on the inside were a little clearer to be able to take pictures if you don’t want to go outside in the weather but I know that it’s hard to keep them clean from the water splashing on them. It was kinda hard to hear the man talking overhead at times but from what I could hear he is very knowledgeable. Overall I will say that I would do it again but maybe in the spring or summer when the weather is nicer.

The tour was interesting and is professionally prepared overall. Above all, the guide, for us it was David, told a lot, involved the guests, knew a lot about the country and its people, history and current affairs. We liked it very much. We can recommend the tour to anyone who would like to get close to the Statue of Liberty but does not necessarily want to take the ferry directly across. Of course, you can also see the Manhattan skyline very well from the boat.
