What You Can Expect

New York Dinner Cruise

Admire the New York City skyline

Make your way to Pier 81 on the west side of Manhattan to board your sleek and stylish boat. Your yacht's stately decor and the music played by the DJ set a sophisticated tone for the evening as you cruise down the Hudson, around the tip of Manhattan, up the East River to midtown, and then back around to the west side. Gaze out the panoramic windows near your table, or head up to the top deck for a relaxing stroll and unobstructed views of New York landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge and United Nations.

During your cruise, indulge in a four-course dinner prepared onboard using fresh, locally sourced ingredients (see Itinerary for sample menu) and served by attentive waitstaff. For an added treat, opt to include access to an open bar of beers, wines and sodas.

After dinner, spend the rest of your evening dancing or just soaking up the dazzling vistas of Manhattan all lit up at night. The low-key, cozy atmosphere of your cruise makes it perfect for intimate conversations or a special milestone celebration. Your luxurious, 3-hour Manhattan cruise concludes back at Pier 81.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Where to begin, in all aspects I would rate everything a 5 star. The exciting part of the cruise was to come with in a 100 feet or so of the Statue of Liberty. The New York City skyline was beautiful. We were going to skip out on the dinner cruise after sight seeing in Nyc but we are so glad we didn't.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We did this on our last night in N.Y. Had a wonderful time. The meal was delicious as were the cocktails! Excellent mix of music to dance to, people celebrating events were made to feel special. The tour of the river by night was magical. All in all a fabulous experience.

It was awesome. The food was very good, the waiters were very attentive Clayton and Michael, the atmosphere was very romantic for my wife and I. The scenery was fantastic as well as the different places you could go to view the sights. Dancing on the way back in was fun and the DJ took a special request that was so memorable. We loved it!!!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish. We had a bottle of champagne waiting at our window table and then enjoyed a lovely meal with excellent service. Views above deck were mind blowing! As it was our 25th wedding anniversary we were also able to dance. A truly romantic, memorable evening.
