We did a small family reunion to celebrate birthdays,& anniversaries to bring family from CT,NJ & NY together. Good dynamics for everyone on a glorious memorial day weekend. However there are a lot of things one needs to be aware of . The parking is $55 for 3-4 hrs. The restrooms are all the way at the front and very... More

My husband booked the 'Romance Package' for us which included champagne (sort of) and flowers. Luckily this meant the table next to us was left empty for the cooler and flowers, otherwise you sit elbow to elbow with your neighbours. The buffet was a bit of a nightmare. They tried to get tables to come up in turns, but everyone... More

LOVE doing this in NYC. It really is worth it, for a full evening of music, fun and food. Our waiter (his name was Patrick) was just FANTASTIC! Seriously, he was better than full 5 start places midtown that we ate. He is a phenomenal server! Food is always great, dessert is good, and music. BEST views - love cruising... More

What an amazing night! We booked the cruise before we left for New York and my partner had arranged for flowers and champagne at our table. They were not there however and he had to ask for them. Our waitress was very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We were expecting a four course meal but it was buffet... More

I took my 4 year old son on a brunch cruise and was so pleased with the whole experience. We got lucky there was another toddler on board. The family was visiting from China and spoke no English, yet the kids had a marvelous time together. Kids seem to have their own language for communicating! We boarded quickly. The tables... More

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!

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

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.
