The weather was sunny and warm. I wore a nice dress, but brought a sweater and it was useful due to the cool wind blowing while I was outside on the deck.

More Information



Come aboard and enjoy the most entertaining lunchtime experience on either side of the Hudson River. This two-hour cruise on New York’s historic harbor is perfect for an afternoon getaway. And it’s the best way to see the New York City waterfalls!

Order a drink, explore the ship and partake in the lunch buffet (you can even go back for seconds and thirds as long as the buffet is open). While you dine, you’ll be entertained by a narrated tour about Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, easily seen from the huge panoramic windows. During coffee and dessert, talented performers will dazzle you with song and dance on the center stage. Then stretch your legs, catch a breath of fresh air and an amazing view before hitting the dance floor. From line dances to Top-40 hits, these DJs know how to get everyone up and dancing, right until the end of the cruise.
