Spirit of New York City Buffet Lunch Cruise

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Head to Chelsea Piers on the westside of Manhattan to board the comfortable boat. Have a photo taken of yourself by the ship's photographer as you embark. You can later purchase the photos as a souvenir and memory of your trip. Then head to your table to grab a seat for the show that is New York City from the water. If you've opted for the upgrade, nurse a glass of Champagne from your souvenir Champagne glass and enjoy the view from your window-side table.

    As the boat pulls out from Chelsea Piers, drink in the ambient views of the Big Apple. Marvel at some of the world's most recognizable landmarks and sites, including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and One World Trade Center, the tallest skyscraper in North America. Then head up to the buffet and indulge in an all-you-can-eat feast that includes delights such as roast salmon, chicken and pasta, among many other delicious treats.

    Bob your head to the DJ'ed music and relax as the boat cruises around New York Harbor. If you've upgraded, enjoy the premium open bar. After 2 hours when the boat pulls back into Chelsea Piers, the cruise has concluded.

    A gun cruise, reasonably priced w a good buffet and some dancing too. But the highlights are the SOL, Brooklyn Bridge, WTC and downtown skyline. Go for it
