What You Can Expect

Bateaux New York Dinner Cruise

Dine in Luxury with Incomparable Views of New York Harbor

Head to Chelsea Piers in the evening to board your luxury cruise, an elegant vessel featuring fully enclosed glass walls and ceiling and a revolutionary deck layout that gives every table a great view of the live entertainment. Get cozy in the climate-controlled cabin or head to the two outdoor viewing decks as your expert captain takes you along the Hudson River, New York Harbor and East River.

The moment you step aboard, live jazz performed by talented musicians provides the perfect ambiance for sipping drinks and admiring the Manhattan skyline. Get up-close views of the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower), Battery Park, Colgate Clock, Governor’s Island, South Street Seaport, the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights and the Manhattan Bridge.

Have your camera ready as you cruise by Ellis Island and the stately Statue of Liberty! As the magnificent skyline spreads before you in all directions, you’ll be served a gourmet dinner at your table (see Itinerary for sample menu). Uniquely designed seating arrangements create an inviting and intimate dining experience.

After dinner, your jazz entertainment resumes, this time with Broadway hits in cabaret style. The evening crescendos with upbeat dance music from the Big Band era to Motown to today’s favorites. Dancing on the spacious hardwood dance floor is encouraged, and musicians are happy to accept requests!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Good food not off the wall amazing but still excellent nevertheless, incredibly great service and staff, awesome views of the city, and the live music was a cool touch. Definitely would recommend, especially for couples!!

Tip: paying for the guaranteed window seat isn't really worth it, since you'll be going outside to better views so often. Plus since the boat has a complete glass wall and ceiling you can get good views from almost all areas inside.

Really enjoyed this river cruise. Staff were friendly. Food was great. We paid extra for the open bar and had cocktails and champagne. The entertainment was very good and sang the American national anthem at the Statue of Liberty after dark and the statue was lit up it was really nice.

Despite torrential thunder storm this was the highlight of our trip to NYC. The whole experience, staff, waiters, food and the boat was terrific. The icing on the cake was able to book a luxury car, ready as we stepped off the boat, to take us back to the hotel all for 38. Wonderful.

I bought this trip as a 40th birthday present for my Husband and paid for the first class seating with guaranteed window seat and we were not disappointed. The whole evening couldn't have been more perfect with the views and wonderful staff. The meal was gorgeous and no complaints at all plus the entertainment was fab too. Having seen New York from the air via Helicopter to see it by boat completed the trip. Amazing evening and would highly recommend.
