Take A Short Vacation On The New York Dinner Cruise!

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

A New York dinner cruise is the perfect break for someone who is just too busy to take a holiday. Savoring scrumptious food while sipping fine wine and enjoying the soothing breeze and breathtaking view along the Hudson and East Rivers. What can be more heavenly?

A dinner cruise starts by being escorted onto a luxury cruise ship or yacht about an hour before the ship is set to leave port. You may take a leisurely walk around the deck, or visit the shops that are on the ship. Or simply laze around and sample the cocktails and exquisite appetizers served throughout the ship.

Different dinner cruise operators may take you on different routes. The one that I went on recently cruised the Hudson and East Rivers, offering a mesmerizing view of some of Manhattans most famous landmarks like the Empire State Building, Chelsea Piers, Brooklyn Bridge and the World Trade Center Site.

Dinner on the New York dinner cruise is sheer indulgence. Rest assured that you will never be disappointed with the wide array of gourmet tastes. Ranging from appetizers like field green salad, fresh salmon sashimi to roasted chicken and vegetable lasagna as main courses, there is something for everyone. And not forgetting mouth watering desserts such as vanilla creme brulee and warm chocolate cakes served with ice cream!

A dinner cruise includes an evening of dancing. To enhance the cruise experience, a band or DJ is usually invited onboard to provide you with what every type of music that you request. Serene notes of jazz, soul and classical favorites provide the perfect ambience for sipping fine wine and gourmet cuisine.

A New York dinner cruise typically takes about three hours. If you are thinking of enjoying the cruise with just family and friends or simply a longer cruise, consider the alternative of renting a private yacht instead. To complete the dinner cruise experience, just engage a food caterer to provide a sumptuous buffet spread on the cruise.

If you tend to have motion sickness, you may wish to bring along some medication. However, I can assure you that most of the time, you will not even realize that you are on water because a cruises speed is slow and steady.

All in all, a New York dinner cruise is an experience unparalleled by other activities. The extraordinary views, exquisite dinning and spectacular live entertainment all make the dinner cruise a perfect evening that will stay in your memory for a long time.
