World Yacht brought the luxury dinner cruise business to New York City in 1984 and became the vanguard of experiential dining, hosting the sociocultural luminaries of the 20th and 21st century. Our vessels set the standard, both in terms of excellence and experience, for the ensuing three decades and created many enduring memories in the process. Today, both the market and our customer is evolving. At the same time, the neighborhood around us - the crossroads of Times Square, the High Line and Hudson Yards - is undergoing a massive transformation. As a result, the time has come for us to innovate once again, to reinvent experiential dining and, in so doing, make a new identity for World Yacht's home at Pier 81, as a social, culinary, and entertainment destination for New York City.

I remember the World Yacht cruises before they were owned by North River Fish Bar. They were more opulent, couples had their weddings on them, they came around with desert carts. This was nice just not what I remembered. That said, they now have "lounges"...More
