  • Happy Brit aboard Manhattan II
    I traveled from the UK to experience New Year’s in New York City, and the Brunch Cruise was the highlight of my trip. The yacht’s interior was beautifully decorated, and the brunch offerings were fab. I enjoyed meeting other travelers and locals alike, all while enjoying the stunning views of NYC. It was a unique and unforgettable experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting the city during the holidays.

    Our family of four had a fantastic time on the New Year’s Day Brunch Cruise. The kids loved the holiday-themed decor, and the brunch menu had something for everyone. The views from the back-deck observatory were stunning, and we had a great time exploring the yacht and taking in the sights of Manhattan. It was a memorable way to start the year as a family!

  • Amazing Views on NYC on NYD
    “My girlfriend and I did the cruise on New Year’s Day, so it was pretty cold, but the main cabin was fairly warm and there was plenty of hot cocoa, coffee and tea to go around. From bagels to quiche to a honey ham, they had it all. But of course, the views were the reason we went, and the cruise didn’t disappoint. The views of the financial district, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the Brooklyn Bridge just can’t be beat.”

The weather wasn’t ideal for taking pictures but that didn’t spoil it at all! The boat wasn’t too crowded so everyone could sit and relax and the crew made the journey a real pleasure! Thank you very much!”
