Indulge in a classy evening out on this New York dinner cruise featuring a four-course gourmet meal, entertainment and sensational skyline views. Admire top New York City attractions including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge as you cruise around the lower part of Manhattan. Soak up the intimate atmosphere of your yacht, which unlike larger boats, offers spectacular vistas from virtually any table. Upgrade to augment your dining experience with an open bar.

Make your way to Pier 81 on the west side of Manhattan to board your sleek and stylish 70-passenger boat. Your yacht's stately decor and the music played by the DJ or live band 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.
