Hi Jonathan!  Superb review! We are glad it was a fun time!  Best, Sophia 
Outstanding!!!, The Host 'Swan' Was a classy European with Charm, who enhanced our 'Special "50th" Anniversary'. We went on a similar "Bateau" Dinner Cruise in France some years ago, and I almost asked the Band if they were on that Cruise 10 years ago, same music and songs, 1 girl, 4 guys, they were great, as was Allison our server.

Hi there Elliott,  Oh my! Sounds like a truly spectacular event! Congratulations on the 50th Anniversary from the entire Cloud 9 Living team! We will be sure to pass the glowing remarks over to our partners, I am sure they will be thrilled you had such an incredible time. Thanks for sharing!  Best, Sophia
Super experience! Every New Yorker should enjoy as well as all out-of-towners. The views were spectacular especially the Statue of Liberty lit up in the evening. Extraordinary! The music was superior, beautiful voices and an excellent selection of songs in the perfect order. Staff was friendly, polite, and very willing to please. We loved it!
Great boat, excellent food quality.
