Sail the NY Harbor on one of the most exquisite things to do in New York: the Gourmet NYC Dinner Cruise!
The Gourmet New York Dinner Cruise is one of the most chic, cosmopolitan outings ever to hit the Manhattan waters. An evening of fine dining, live music, dazzling sights, and endless memories await you on the beautiful Bateaux.
Board this magnificent vessel at Chelsea Piers and prepare to experience sightseeing in New York like you never have before. The ship’s all-glass walls and debonair decks offer guests spectacular views, whether strolling outside or enjoying your meal in the dining room. Marvel at celebrated New York City attractions like the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower, Manhattan Bridge, Ellis Island, Battery Park, Brooklyn Bridge, and more.
As you enter the dining areas, you'll be greeted by a first-class wait staff and the elegant harmonies of an acoustic trio. Order a cocktail from the cash bar as you settle into your table, serenaded by jazz, blues, and bossa nova.
The Gourmet New York Dinner Cruise’s three-course meal is presented as an a la carte experience, with a mouthwatering array of options from which to choose. Start with an appetizer such as fresh salad, seafood tower, or duck pastrami. Then tuck into an enticing entree like crab cakes, glazed chicken breast or cod, braised beef short rib, and zucchini fritters. And finish with a rich dessert of cheese, cake or sorbet.
After dinner, unwind in your favorite way. Amble along the Bateaux’s decks for fresh air and breathtaking Manhattan views, sip a cocktail and relax to the sounds of the acoustic trio, or move your feet to the beat of dance favorites like Motown and current hits.
Board the Bateaux and delight in one of the most exquisite things to do in New York City!
