I used Spirit of New York for my Grandson's 16th Birthday Surprise. He was truly surprised. The staff, the DJ/Cruise Director/Host/Comedian was great lol. My person of contact was Margaret Stapleton, she is awesome! My family, friends, the birthday boy & I, had a wonderful experience. I wish it lasted a little longer.

I would like to take this time and thank Spirit Cruise for making my Mom's retirement party a huge success. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and kind. Our waitress went above and beyond making sure we were all okay and had everything we needed. The photographer staff was very sufficient in making sure our pictures came out great! Our... More

July 4th was my 40th Birthday, and my partner had decided she wanted to take me on the Fireworks Cruise. We live in the UK, so did some hunting online for options. We chose Spirit as it seemed a good size ship, and the package had plenty included. The Fireworks were brilliant, and viewing them on the East River from... More

I did this cruise many years ago, and did not remember that it was this good and so much fun! The food was great, and the cruise and music were wonderful. There are different packages that you can choose from, and add-on packages as well. We added the drink package which was nice and included a champagne toast, but then... More

Me and my team were lucky enough to be invited to this trip organised by my company who hired entire top deck for us. The ship was quite big, very clean and nicely decorated. The trip itself was only a few hours long but we got to see beautiful views of New York. The food was very good and the... More

Firstly, the fireworks, and our view of them from on the East River, were fantastic. God bless America ! Likewise, views of the Manhattan skyline, particularly after dark on the way back to Chelsea Piers, were beautiful. However, at 5 hours, the cruise was too long, the food and the organisation of serving it, was not good. Service was willing... More

We were a party of 4 celebrating my child's high school graduation on Thursday. We had an awsome time, the buffet menu was great, everything was well done and super delicious. The upstairs sitting area was truly relaxing with beautiful colorful couches. The DJ Lue was extra ordinary, he announced every location insight, he was really informative and interactive. The...

Beautiful boat. Loved the commentary pointing out the important sights!! The buffet was not good at all. Try to get the cruise that serves sandwiches.

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.
