Itinerary

The tour starts from Chelsea Piers and you can board your Spirit of New York Dinner Cruise 30 minutes before your sailing time.

You’ll know you’re in for a special evening the moment you step aboard Spirit’s vibrant decks and are escorted to your candlelit table. Order drinks (payable direct), then feel free to explore the ship while the crew casts off for 3 fabulous hours on New York Harbor.

Your waiter will invite you to the Grande Dinner Buffet, where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare. Everything is freshly prepared in the shipboard galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet. Menus change but the following example will give you an idea of what is likely to be on offer:

Menu subject to change.

Savor your culinary selections over perfectly-paced dinner music and enjoy the views of the city lights through the vast windows. After the show, take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in the city while Manhattan’s magnificent skyline spreads before you in all directions. It’s the perfect pause before the pulsing beat of Spirit’s dance tunes entices you onto the dance floor.

Spirit’s dinner cruises spotlight some of the hottest DJs in the city. For nearly two hours, they will spin your favorite tunes and let you rock ‘til you dock - literally. The perfect end to the perfect night.

At the end of your 3-hour cruise, you will be dropped back at Chelsea Pier.
