A few weeks ago I was invited to come aboard the beautiful Bateaux New York, one of the best upscale cruises from Hornblower Cruises and Events. 

I arrived at Chelsea Piers where the Bateaux departs from and was immediately greeted by their wonderful staff and taken to our table located on the windows side. Our sightseeing cruise adventure started with a glass of champagne and an introduction as what we were about to experience throughout our 3 hours dining cruise. It was raining and very windy that night that unfortunately the open-air deck was close to public access but I was given a quick chance, before the second course was served, of the open-air deck and was able to go outside just as the boat was passing underneath the Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridges. The views of NYC landmarks (Empire State Building, One World, and the Statue of Liberty) at night even with the rain falling was absolutely breathtaking, I didn’t wanted to go back inside. Pair those views with the most amazing and delicious three-course dinner and drinks, I definitely couldn’t ask for more. I couldn’t stop thinking through the night that this will be a perfect dinner celebration for any of our couples who will be eloping to NYC and would like to experience a different dining option.

You can’t beat breathtaking views, delicious food, premium drinks, excellent musical entertainment and top-notch customer service aboard an state-of-the-art yacht.  Definitely something I can recommend to do while in NYC with your loves one.

It was a magical experience of a lifetime!
