I chaperoned a trip with 47 teenagers and many of them said that this was the highlight of their trip to NYC! The food was delicious and the view was incredible. The music and dancing was fun for the kids. We will definitely make sure we do this again!

We arrived at the Chelsea Pier excited about our adventure on the Hudson river for our first day in the Big Apple. We arrived at the boat to be rudely told wait there we are certainly not ready for you. We then boarded to be sat down to dirty cutlery and cups, the unenthusatic waiter then told us we can... More

You have to do this! It was a wonderful time, the food was amazing, the views were amazing, the skyline, the statue of liberty, everything was breath taking! Inside the ship they have a dance floor and a DJ that got everybody in floor including an adorable elderly couple. Amazing tour! Must see! Check out the romance packages! So worth... More

You can't beat the view! In one 3 hours event- you get up close and personal to the Stature of Liberty, Ellis Island, Battery Park, Brooklyn Bridge, South Street Seaport. and on and on. The food is very good for the venue- a ship - and if you do the night cruise, they have dancing too. It really is a... More

The cruise was really good, staff really friendly, but they do take forever to do things as it is very busy (ie. provide you with your free drink, or menu, or just bring you drinks at all unless you keep hassling them) but that wasnt a big deal. However we did buy the drinks package, but by the time they... More

Went on a girl's trip to NYC in January. This is a perfect way to take in the beautiful NYC skyline at night and the Statue of Liberty. We upgraded to get a window table and the platinum bar package. We also purchased the picture. For a cold rainy night it was the perfect thing to do. The boat "New... More

In fact it is a little hard for me but my family and I are very disappointed. We spend over a thousand dollars a very simple dinner without anything in particular. The food was just a self service with a very simple food and completely bland. We paid for an open bar service and the second part of the dinner... More

From the outset of booking the trip to spending 3 hours cruising down the Hudson River, this trip was first class. Advice I can offer is, spend that extra bit more money on the extras, such as a window dinner table for 2. The views were amazing and unspoiled. The platinum bar package means drink what you want and when... More

Sailed on the cruise New Years Eve night for my husbands 40th birthday. Amazing views of the new York skyline which shouldn't be missed. Drinks not too expensive, no more than you would pay anywhere else in the City. Food was ok, nothing flash. Deserts was a let down, very little choice. You have the chance to pay for a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
