ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TIME!! We had been looking forward to this excursion and we had been having a brilliant 21st birthday celebration for my partner and this was quite literally the icing on the 'gluten-free' cake. The staff were more than happy to assist us and we had brought on a birthday cake (from Tu-Lu's gluten free bakery -which we would... More

This was the fourth time we have taken a 4th of July cruise with World Yacht and, sadly, this cruise did not live up to the three prior ones. The ship (Princess) is nice and comfortable and the crew is friendly and tries hard to please. And of course the NYC views and fireworks never fail to awe. Hence the... More

We took this cruise in 2014. The yacht left the dock after we ate dinner. It was a windy, rainy day- so we don't know if this is the normal procedure. The food was excellent , but the tables are very small and close to each other. The staff was friendly and the ship was very clean. We found there... More

We booked a table for four people many months in advance for the evening of my 40th birthday. When we boarded we had a warm welcome but when we went to be seated were excitedly told 'we have been expecting you, we have pulled some strings and managed to secure you a window seat, so please remember this when it...

I would just like to let everyone know that our group trip on World Yacht featuring their private lounge area was incredible. It was fantastic!!!! Luis Compres, and his servers Margarita, Orlin, Thomy, and Panu went far beyond the call of duty. They were at the top of their game. They walked around with a smile and presented all of... More

This whole experience was amazing! I had gone with a group of friends after their wedding for the reception. As soon as we entered we were seated and our fantastic server Clayton introduced himself. It appeared each table was seen to promptly and it didn't wait until everyone had boarded before service started! The food was good and the drinks... More

A gift from our family for 50 years married and it was wonderful. A beautiful evening and plenty of scope for photographs. We were all inclusive which meant that any beers, wine and soft drinks were free and what a difference as the prices for drinks was quite pricy. The staff on hand were very friendly and attentive and can't... More

The dinner cruise was fantastic and worth the cost. Drinks are a bit pricy. And the staff is very concerned your enjoying your food and having a good time. It was a great night the Flat Iron was fantastic.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
