I have to say that the group thought this was probably the best thing we did while in New York City. From the ambience to the food, it was a wonderful experience.

Myself and my wife celebrated our engagement with world yacht in 2013, we found that the service was fantastic and the cruise was a must do for first time visits to see a different part of the city in a different light. After getting married we revisited nyc and felt that celebrating with world yacht would be nice! This night... More

What a night. Dressed up, great food, dancing, three decks, great staff .. Fun night. If you get the chance do this three hour cruise. Enjoy the skyline, the picturesque Statue of Liberty, travel under the Brooklyn 'n' Manhattan bridges. By day and the as it gets darker .. You won't be disappointed!

We had a party of 10 and we felt so welcomed, and service was excellent, our waiters Gabriel, Elizabeth and Ariel, are so efficient and they make you feel at home. Food was excellent and the music too.

On the 4th of July, my husband and I decided to splurge and take the World Yacht cruise to see the fireworks in the East River. We had done this cruise 5 years ago when it was on the Hudson and really enjoyed it. When we made the reservation, we requested a window table and were told they would not... More

Rondo Specialty Foods entertained approx. 30 people on Sunday June 28, 2015 on World Yacht at Pier 81 NYC while attending the New York Fancy Food show. We have done so with this venue for over 12 years. We rented the lounge this year for a more informal and casual get together which made perfect sense for visiting and moving... More

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

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.
