New York City, New York
The diner cruise was lovely. It was very elegant- white tablecloths, people in evening attire dressed to the nines and the food was delicious- filet mignon, shrimp cocktail and exotic desserts. All this as we gazed through the huge windows of the gigantic yacht at the New York skyline. We glided from midtown down the Hudson River under the full moon past the Empire State Building, the Chrysler building and other twinkling landmarks. We continued down along the south end of Manhattan Island and marveled at the new Freedom Tower shining over ground zero where the twin towers had been. We then passed the three bridges of lower Manhattan including the Brooklyn Bridge with its sparkling necklace of lights and headed out over the rippling dark water to the Statue of Liberty where we got up very close. Lady Liberty looked so serene and graceful- all lit up at night and her torch aglow. The dinner cruise was a new and memorable experience for both of us and my whole Big Apple visit was fabulous. The extra money for filet mignon and shrimp locktail was well spent although the veal was also yummy. The staff was very attentive, friendly and professional. . Yes. I recommed this. In my case I took my Mom who is getting on in years, is quite sophiisticated and well traveled and she loved it. So did I.
