Be sure to being a camera to capture breathtaking views of landmark attractions like One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge and more.
Mingle with friends, family or co-workers, and depending on the type of cruise experience chosen, enjoy a selection og beer and wine or an unlimited premium open bar. Listen to live music, dance to an award-winning DJ or simply sit on one of the outer decks, drink in hand, taking in the view of the city as it lights up for the evening.
This happy hour cruise is great for fun of all kinds, including the traditional end of the work day mixer (must be 21 or older with valid ID to consume alcohol). Climb on board as part of a group celebration, a birthday party, a team-building activity, a private event or just another excuse to get out and about.
