Gather the family, a group of friends, or business associates and head out on the water aboard the recently renovated Spirit of New York for an afternoon escape. Lunch Cruises are two hours in length and depart from Chelsea Piers in New York City.
Spirit’s delicious lunch buffet is open throughout the cruise. Sample a variety of dishes, including several vegetarian options, and save room for a decadent dessert assortment.
