New York City has a lot going for it: a beautiful skyline, iconic sights like the Statue of Liberty, and some of the greatest cuisine in the world. The best way to experience all of these things at once is a dinner cruise down the Hudson River around New York Harbor, such as those offered by World Yacht, host to an idyllic setting for romantic dinners, dinner parties, Sunday brunches, and more. World Yacht offers a true New York experience that is unique, fun and engaging.
A night aboard World Yacht, on a route through the New York Harbor, is a social event with great food, exceptional service and stunning views of the city. It’s an opportunity to do something different. World Yacht is the perfect place for any special occasion, romantic date, a small dinner party or just an evening out.
For Dinner Cruises, available through advance reservations or walk-up ticket purchases on the pier, diners are welcomed aboard at 6pm, and the ship sets sail at 7pm (return at 10pm). During the 3-hour cruise a four-course meal is served and the patrons spread out to exterior decks to take in views of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Brunch Cruise includes a buffet, a private table, a live pianist for entertainment, and a complimentary drink. Boarding is at 11:30am with sailing from 12:30pm to 2:30pm.
World Yacht’s weekly Freedom Lunch Cruise to the 9/11 Memorial, which sails every Saturday through December, allows guests to combine a lunch buffet, music and dancing, with a visit to lower Manhattan and the 9/11 Memorial. Boarding begins at 10:30am, sailing from 11am-1pm.
The yachts are also available for private charters for corporate events, weddings and social gatherings. With a long history of catering to the most exacting standards and tastes, World Yacht’s boats can accommodate a wide range of group sizes and arrangements.
