NYC is famed for its plethora of restaurants, and diverse culinary options. Why not make your dinner experience that little bit more special, by enjoying a delicious meal on the river while enjoying the twinkling lights of the NYC’s cityscape.

The New York City Lights Dinner Cruise by Hornblower Cruises is a unique way to enjoy the city landmarks – all from the climate-controlled sun deck! Enjoy your sundowner while taking in the views of Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge and of course, New York’s iconic Manhattan skyline.

The cruise offers a three course a la carte meal with coffee, along with premium bar upgrades. Enjoy entrée options like filet mignon with truffled potatoes au gratin and pan-seared salmon with roasted vegetable couscous and saffron tomato fume.

After dinner, no need for a club when the experience is brought to you. Dance the rest of the cruise away to the live on-board DJ before you dock at the end of your journey.
