Highlights / General details
A Lunch Cruise aboard Bateaux is among the most unique ways to see Manhattan. Great for New York City natives and visitors alike, the two-hour cruise is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city in a relaxed, yet sophisticated, setting. Enjoy an afternoon of dining, dancing and incredible views as you cruise along the Hudson River.
Bateaux cruises depart from Chelsea Piers in New York City, following a route that includes well-known landmarks like the Freedom Tower, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. See the majestic New York City skyline and get up-close views of the iconic Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Enjoy incredible views from inside the glass-enclosed ship or head out to the open-air observation area. Bateaux’s pianist will entertain you with interesting facts about New York’s notable sights as we cruise by.
Our pianist will also delight with a variety of tunes. You'll hear music ranging from a light selection of familiar favorites to a more up-tempo assortment featuring jazz, Broadway and blues. Piano melodies are the perfect complement to a leisurely three-course lunch, filled with flavorful selections prepared by our chef. Enjoy attentive and friendly service for your party while you savor creative appetizers, entrées and desserts.
