Onboard a yacht with spectacular views

The romantic evening starts with every couple receiving a red rose as a welcome gift before the yacht sets sail. Against the beautiful backdrop of NYC, sparkling with the lights that illuminate the skyline, this simple gesture sets the mood for a perfect evening. There is nothing more romantic than gliding over the Hudson and East Rivers on a luxurious yacht. During the three-hour cruise, you are then served a four-course meal at your private table.

The impressive boat features an upper deck (perfect for romantic strolls in the moonlight) and panoramic windows on the lower decks so that you can enjoy the view from the comfort of your table. The cruise goes around the southern tip of Manhattan, taking you up the East River, passing underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, and continuing North so that you can catch a glimpse of the United Nations Building. On the way back, you will be able to enjoy views of the Statue of Liberty as well as the Empire State and Chrysler buildings.

After dinner, you can dance through the night or simply relax and enjoy the view of the sparkling city reflecting in the water.
