Combine New York City sightseeing with dining aboard the Spirit of New York on a dinner cruise along the Hudson and East Rivers. Manhattan has to be seen from the water to be truly appreciated and this luxurious vessel affords unparalleled views of the world-famous skyline from its huge windows.

The Spirit of New York is spaciously designed with climate-controlled interior decks, outdoor strolling decks at the bow and stern, and the largest outdoor patio decks on New York Harbor. Amenities include full-service bars, dance floors, and guaranteed seating arrangements.

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.

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.
