NOTE: Guests will join other passengers on the Cruises. Open deck space for viewing fireworks may be limited and is not guaranteed. Due to security precautions, departure and return times of the cruise, as well as positioning in New York Harbor, is controlled by city and federal authorities. Neither the cruise/boat operator, nor NYCVP, can deviate from the times and itinerary. It has been our experience that once the boats depart their docks, they sail directly to their viewing position in the East River where they anchor. Therefore we suggest you bring books, games or other items that would keep your children occupied, as well as hats and sun-screen.
