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!

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!

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.
