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.

Lovely cruise, wonderful seeing the New York skyline by night, little disappointed that it was a buffet, I was under the impression it was table service :(

Last May we took this night dinner cruise tour in New York. The reservation was made trough www.travelzoo.com. At first we were supposed to take the Bateaux New York , but the site moved us to the Spirit Cruise for the same price . It was not a problem. All the emails that we received were very clear about how... More

Food, service, views superb. We had 75 guests for our 25th anniversary party and the staff treated each and everyone as though they were on a private cruise. The views of Manhattan were so very memorable and this is from a couple of New Yorkers! Our family and friends had an excellent time.

First things we saw was the dirty utensils. Service was awful. They didn't have enough staff and getting a drink took forever. For $362 dollars for two people and on top of that drinks were about $12 to $20 dollars a glass. The service you get is not worth the amount you spend. Food was ok. They had a buffet... More

My company had a dinner cruise on the Spirit of New York back in November. My husband and I were excited because we love cruising. The experience getting to this location was a nightmare!! It was on a Thursday night and there was terrible traffic all throughout the West Side Highway. There were also no signs indicating where to enter... More

I booked a pair of first class tickets for a Tuesday evening Dinner Cruise on a recent trip to New York for my Mums belated birthday present and was thrilled to have enjoyed such a special evening her. From the minute we stepped on to the moment we reluctantly had to leave everything was spot on. We were on the... More

My out of town guests and friend tremendously enjoyed the cruise. We had a window table for lunch and the views of the harbor and the Statue of Liberty are breathtaking. Our D.J. was one of the best; he played music for every age group and announced special events such as birthdays and anniversaries. There was fun on the dance... 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.
