Wow most of these reviews come from 2002, but it's 7 yrs later wow, time flies. Citysearch ahs the best things to look up and write reviews on other than google. Not fun on a cold or rainy day. I took this in the summer. I brought my digital camera,and put up photos online of the cruise. I went towards sunset on the 3 hr cruise it was fun. They had a tour guide make announcements and give you an education on the unknown facts of the city. Pretty lights, pretty sunsets, Georgeous bridges, Tall buildings, watching the water waves, you see the woolworth building, south street seaport, the empire state building, the chrysler building, the lipstick building, and citycorp building, the Queens bank tower, the statue of Liberty, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, the Colgate Clock, Jersey City, Downtown Brooklyn, and so much more. You learn alot in one day. Bring you own food. Snacks can be alittle pricey. You watch ships, water taxi's, and other boats pass by. I found out that DUMBO mean Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass. And that the Bronx was named after a family called the Broncs. I saw co-op city. I passed by ground zero. The United Nations, a tall residential black architectured building. The best part was the upper east side and passing the George Washington Bridge. A great educational experience, and if I had more money I'd go back. I'm not a tourist.
The gothic style buildings against the skyline and sunset is amazing like in the movie spiderman/batman. Nice scenery. Never go on a snowy day. Maybee it's closed in winter who knows.

Pros: Sightseeing the entire city

Cons: Prices and dirty bathrooms downstairs

I've been on The Circle Line a few times now with all my trips to NYC and each time it's worth the trip. Going to see Lady Liberty is a great experience to be had by all. The price is affordable and sometimes you'll have just as much fun "people watching" while waiting in line for the boat!

I played toursit one vacation and loved taking this. I live/work in Manhattan and had lost sight that it really is an island. You really get a prospective of the city and see many of the tall building.

Pros: See Statue of Liberty, See the skyline

Cons: Crowded in Summer

On the website for Circle Line Tours it said that we could catch the 3 hour tour at Pier 16 - well that is not true and several people behind us were also turned away. Perhaps because it is October, but the website should reflect that!!!

NYCL rocks. I had a great opportunity to view New York's skylines. The service was "off the hook". The info that you get from the captains during the trip is rather insightful and very informational. I HAD A BLAST!!!

when you need to take a break from running around the city like a lunatic (whether you're a tourist or a citizen) this is the perfect place to sit back. I bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the views.

A 3 hour tour would have been fun if I wound up on Gilligan's Island .. but no ... this was a boat ride around Manhattan at a snails pace. Going at a snails pace made the trip so boring I fell asleep. I don't need to pay to sleep, I can stay home and sleep for free.
The staff were friendly enough but disinterested ... and they were late! grrrrrrr :(

We took the 2-hour ride from 42nd St. pier on a record hot day. It was cool and loads of fun. Sights were great and so was the commentary. Top notch all the way

The Circle Line cruises are THE very best attraction in New York City. What an institution! What a great way to see the City as a whole--take in the entire skyline, check out every bridge, see every borough and every waterway. And all for a nominal price, with a hot dog on the side! The guides are consistently knowledgeable and friendly. The ships are clean with a perfect balance of outdoor and indoor spaces, seats and standing areas. It's my idea of the perfect New York experience.

I take visiting friends and family whenever I get the chance. It's a great tour and all you have to do is sit there. It's a little hot on the deck in high summer but spring and fall are quite pleasant. I usually pack a picnic lunch and enjoy our beautiful city.

Pros: relaxing

Cons: the chairs, annoying tourists

After the long walk across 42nd street and getting over the shock of the age of the boats, the Circle Line Cruise on a warm afternoon is something every tourist (and New Yorker) needs to experience at least once. It is one of the few things that is just as much fun with a group or alone.

It's the greatest way to SEE NY without having to leave your seat...especailly nice for the elderly and handicap. You not only see Manhattan, you can see NJ, Queens, Brooklyn.

The Circle Line Jazz Cruises are a lovely way to see
the island of Manhattan, while also enjoying good music. One can also have a cocktail or something to
eat while enjoying the cool breeze & the sounds of mellow music and waves intertwine. A definite stop for any visitors one wants to show a good time.

With no doubt a NYC classic. Best views of Manhattan and unbelievable knowledge is gained from their well seasoned tour guides. I take my visiting friends and family every time and they love it.

Pros: Parking, Public Transpotation, Friendly Staff

Where else can a family get together for an inexpensive and relaxing way to see and learn all about NYC--Circle Line. The tour guides are professors of the Big Apple. Soak in the sun and knowledge of a Circle Line tour. It's like taking a crash course in NYC 101.

I live in the city and just took my visiting family on this ride - it is AMAZING. We did the 3 hour tour all the way around the island. the tour guides are experts and you learn so much about the city, the landmarks,and the history. Truly worth the money!

Pros: Safety, Tour guide, views

You shouldn't come to NYC or live in NYC if you haven't taken a ride on the Circle Line! Though the view of the towers used to be a really big highlight our skyline still has alot of offer. Getting out of the rat race and cruising around the city on the ship is easily one of the quickest fixes for relaxation that I can think of. Don't forget the Capts. who share with you all sorts of funny and exciting tidbits about NYC!

If you're stuck showing visitors around the city, and you don't feel like exerting much effort, the Circle Line is absolutely your best bet. The views are spectacular (the city really does look magical from the water). All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the three-hour ride. Let the tour guide do the talking. Best done in the spring or summer, when the breezes off the water are refreshing not frigid.
