On this occasion we were celebrating a friends birthday, there were four of us, two couples. The trip is amazing with the views of New York by night and the sunset on the other... More

It was delightful. I am not sure about the person who wrote a review about it not being 'formal' and that one could go wearing anything - but that was not the case. It is formal enough [no one wore jeans or shorts or slippers]. Dinner was great and the staff was very friendly and wonderful. Our server Julia was... More

We had a really nice time. The food was better than expected, servers were very friendly. Courses were spread out, it seemed like the earlier you boarded, the sooner you got served. The music was very good. Not really set up for dancing, we did, but it was very slightly awkward. Drinks did seem weak, but this is minor. The... More

The boat was wheelchair accessible but only because I brought my manual wheelchair. Not so sure a power chair could make it because the gangway ramp had steep ends. The boat left on time an although we did not have window seats the view was still very good. The quartet that provided the entertainment was very good. The service in... More

We celebrated our 10th anniversary on Bateaux. It was wonderful. Do not let the people who left bad reviews scare you. The ship was comfortable, the food was adequate, the bad was excellent and the service was outstanding. I mean outstanding. I am a very harsh critic when it comes to service and all I can say is that the... More

We go to NYC quite a bit since our son lives there and I've always wanted to take this river cruise. It was a wonderful experience. We were very lucky to have perfect weather and could go out on the deck to take pictures. Our waitress was wonderful, explaining that the courses would be served every 45 minutes so you... More

The food was very good and so was the quartet. Service good but not great. Views were spectacular. Not a bad price for food, entertainment, transportation and unique view of Manhattan and surrounding area.

Went to NYC for the 4th of July and decided to book the Bateaux dinner cruise. We weren't sure what to expect but the experience was fabulous. The boat left Chelsea Pier and cruised up the Hudson around the tip of the Island past the Statue of Liberty then down the East River under the Brooklyn Bridge and a bit... 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.
