Our Reviews

Anthony D.

Very helpful and detailed communications. I had a lot of questions, and Margarita was very patient and attentive. I walked into the day of my event assured that Empire Cruises took care of everything, and they did.

Dahlia B.

A fantastic experience. Wonderful boat and great crew! Thank you so much Sal, for giving us the experience of a lifetime on the Cosmo. We had the awesome DJ Ish, who never gave us a chance to catch our breath. Great music and very accommodating to our requests. I would gladly do this again in a heartbeat!
