Good to Know - Availability & Payments

Given the frequent updates to the cruise operating days and schedule, it may take 24 to 48 hours for the calendar to reflect true availability and closure dates. This is why when our guests decide to proceed with their reservations, we only authorize their payment but won't actually charge the credit card until the table has been manually confirmed by our staff and an E-Ticket has been issued. This way if anything changes in regards to the availability of our guests' chosen date, we simply void the authorization and no charge whatsoever will appear on their credit card statement. Different from a refund that may take 5 to 8 business days to be processed, voiding an authorization will be in most cases instantly reflect on your online banking or within 24-36 hours depending on your bank/credit card.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
