Your afternoon cruise begins at Chelsea Piers on the west side of Manhattan where you'll board the aptly named Manhattan, a 1920s-style yacht with teak decks and mahogany rails. Gather in the boat's enclosed observatory with its panoramic windows and skylights for your wine-tasting class.

Listen as a highly trained sommelier discusses the grapes, soils and styles for the wines from a specific world region, such as northern Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain or France. Practice your wine-tasting technique as you sample five different wines from the selected region. Enjoy an artisan or farmstead cheese pairing with each wine, as well as a selection of dried fruits, nuts and breads.

During your cruise, admire captivating views of the New York City skyline as you travel south along the Hudson River and into New York Harbor.

In addition to your included tastings, enjoy complimentary soda, juice and water throughout your cruise.
