My friend and I bought this ticket on Travel Zoo and then planned a N.Y.C. visit around it! The night of the cruise was clear, warm and beautiful, our waitress was very efficient and extremely pleasant, stopping to chat with us but not intrusive. Food was excellent and the scenery spectacular! It's been quite a few years since I've seen... More

A little pricey but we went shortly before the General Election so the pound took a bit of a downturn against the dollar which went part way towards it seeming high - but it must be said that it was worth every penny. Be advised that the boat loads around 1800 hours and the traffic at this time is diabolical,... More

We were looking forward to this dinner as being the highlight of our NY trip. Because of the good reviews we choose bateaux as our special trip of the new york skyline. We arrived on a fresh evening in May and it was hard to get warm onboard as the airconditioning was going full blast, anyway it might have been... More

The Spirit Cruise ship's Representative Erin Trinidad has been an excellent Customer Relation Representative. She really has worked very hard with the group from our church to accommodate us with not only the menu, but the issue of one of the buses missing the ship because of a traffic jam due to a fire on a bus ahead. She really... More

New York is a special place. But to see it from the water on a dinner cruise, was something even more magical. I have been to NY many times, but have never had such a treat! The 5-star three course dinner was as good as any in Manhattan, the table service attentive and friendly, and the views....WHEW! I can honestly... More

Admittedly this event was part of an organized trip, however it was the best part of the trip. The view of the NYC skyline was unbelievable, and when the boat stopped at the base of the Statue of Liberty while playing God Bless America - unforgettable. The food is very well done. Yes, service seems slow at first but that... More

I absolutely loved this trip. I had my reservations as I didn't think it would be my "thing" but I went along with my friends but it really was one of the highlights of our trip to New York. The staff were absolutely lovely. The food was really nice and fresh with a "home cooked" feeling to it. I thought... More

A great boat, offering excellent views of the city at night. The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful. The catch is that the food service is VERY SLOW! At least half an hour between courses. While this may not be a problem for most people, those of us who are insulin diabetic need to bring something to eat,... 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.
