Combine great sightseeing with elegant dining aboard the Spirit of New York on a lunch along 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.

Spirit 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 flexible seating arrangements.

Choose a lunch-time cruise option for a relaxing afternoon getaway.

While you enjoy the meal, you will be entertained with a fascinating narrated tour of Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, which can be clearly seen through the huge panoramic windows. Maybe you’ve seen the Statue of Liberty a thousand times. Maybe you’ve only seen it in a picture. No matter how you’ve seen her before, you’ve never seen her like this!

When lunch is over, why not stretch your legs? Head topside for the largest outdoor patio deck in New York and catch a breath of fresh air and an amazing view. Or hit the dance floor – from line dances to Top-40 hits, Spirit’s DJs know how to get everyone up and dancing, right to the end of your cruise.

Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

You need to call the local activity operator at least 72 hours before the organised activity to confirm your reservation. 

Menu is subject to change.

Dress Code: It’s a lot of fun to put on your glamorous best for a lunch cruise, but casual dress is perfectly acceptable. But avoid sleeveless shirts (men), cut-offs, torn clothing and clothing with offensive messaging. 

In the rare event the Coast Guard prohibits cruising because of weather, your activity operator will contact you to make other arrangements.
