New York Dinner Cruise with Buffet

New York Dinner Cruise with Buffet

This is an amazing way to experience New York! Board the ship at Pier 61 in the evening and get ready for a fun, entertaining evening. Before dinner, feel free to explore the ship, while your crew casts off for three fabulous hours on New York Harbor. Your waiter will invite you to the dinner buffet where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare.

Everything is freshly prepared in our shipboard galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet. Savor your culinary selections over perfectly-paced dinner music and a never ending view of Manhattan's breathtaking skyline through the panoramic windows.

While you relax on the vibrant decks, enjoy your meal and take in the endless stream of city sights. Later, head topside and relax on the outdoor patio deck for views of Manhattan's magnificent skyline.

Hit the dance floor as our hottest DJs spin your favorite tunes and let you rock 'til we dock!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Excellent! I figured the food would be mediocre at best, but it was excellent. It was better than most catered events including weddings. It seemed fresh and the chicken and salmon were moist and cooked perfectly. We were very lucky and had a smooth ride because of calm waters. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend Spirit Lines for an evening dinner cruise to anyone visiting Manhattan. The sky line of NYC and NJ is spectacular at night and Lady Liberty never looked so beautiful! I will definitely do it again, but only on the Spirit line.
