We celebrated Mother's Day with a brunch cruise. The food was plentiful but nothing special - and cold. The waitress was ok, but had too many guests to attend to. The view was wonderful - making the trip worth while.

We visited NY to celebrate a family member's birthday and booked the Sunday Lunch/Brunch Cruise. It was fantastic. The staff was friendly. The food was absolutely amazing. There was a lot to keep us entertained, but the View of the Statue of Liberty was the highlight. Would certainly recommend this Cruise to others

There was not enough wait staff and they were definitely overwhelmed with a large last minute party. My daughter graduated college today and we thought it would be a fun... More

What a treat fun experience. The cruise took us around the statute of liberty while being entertained with music and commentary. Buffet style food was top quality and the drinks were reasonably priced. The staff on board and the extra mile to ensure everyone had a great time. Highly recommended!

We took the Spirit dinner cruise with three teenagers and we all had a great time. The views were amazing with opportunity for photos from the open top deck. The food and service were also high standard. Highly recommended.

I decided to go on this through a recommendation of a friend. Well it didn't disappoint one bit! When booking I put that this was for my wife's birthday. I didn't think much of it but every single employee we spoke too wished her a happy Birthday which was a really nice touch. Once we got our tickets we boarded... More

The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood 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.
