We took the lunch cruise out to see the Statue of Liberty. The service was extremely good, and the food was good as well. We had no trouble getting some nice pictures as we passed by the statue, and the DJ did a great job entertaining the passengers on the return journey after the meal was over.

I am very picky so with that being said, Spirit did an excellent job from start to finish. Great job from beginning to end. The staff was great! Once you board they take you to your assigned table, we were on the third floor overlooking the dance floor below. Our waiter was ok but his helper Phillip from Brooklyn (... More

Visited the spirit buffet cruise last night on Thanksgiving night. I thought it would be a lovely setting for the night that was in it. My husband & I paid €250 for this buffet dinner cruise, I was expecting at least 3 courses, instead we received what I would call microwave dinner & cheap desserts with no mineral/soda or alcohol....

We celebrated my Sister's 60th birthday at a Sunday Brunch on the Rivers on Marathon Sunday. The experience was an excellent one starting with booking the Group outing. Mariel was efficient, flexible and courteous during the entire transaction, Getting to the Pier was easy, we took public transportation to get there from all of the boros because we were sceptical...

Every moment of this experience was worth the ticket! Boarding was smooth and the transition to lunch was seamless! Great adult music. Not too loud! Not a party tour! The food is amazingly healthy but delicious!!!!! I'm greedy and a foodie! I had more of the salad than the regular food and I'm not a salad person. The views on... More

We had the most wonderful time cruising around New York and eating a grand buffet. We went at night, so the skyline and the Statue of Liberty were incredible. The food was amazing - the most delicious baked sesame chicken, pork tenderloin, beef with wine sauce, and the sole was good too, I'm sure. The many desserts included a wonderful... More

I booked this through Groupon on a whim. I've never taken a dinner cruise like this before. If you're ever going to do a dinner cruise, do it in NYC!!! Close to sunset , everyone boards the boat, orders drinks. Afterwards they announced that everyone could start the buffet service. The food was very tasty- many different options, vegs and... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
