My niece was married in NYC and she wanted to go on this dinner cruise that evening. I have been to NYC many times but never on a dinner cruise. She told me the price for my son and I. I had sticker shock, not going to lie! I was concerned about how the food would taste & prepared myself... More

Bottom line - we enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as the Bateaux in Paris on the Seine. The menu is limited, but our chicken and cod (and crab chowder appetizer) were excellent, as well as deserts of cheese and a lovely butter cake. Drinks very expensive, and wine only ok. Service is slow, but timed to stretch out... More

Recent evening dinner cruise was perfect in every way! Excellent attentive service which included our waiter frequently taking us out on deck for photos with the sights. Great food and entertainment, a really memorable, atmospheric evening.

This was an anniversary gift, and surpassed our expectations! The ambience was great, you see some fantastic sites, and the staff was waiting on you hand and foot!

I have visited New York three times and have gone on the Bateaux on each trip. I would go again should I visit New York again. 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

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.
