Many private clubs and charity events regularly charter yachts to cruise New York harbor and see the sights from the comfort and relative quiet of a ships' deck. Instead of ignoring the noise and bustle of the city, you can sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy your cruise through New York. There are several options and themes if you are looking to doing one of the scenic cruises, so there is no reason not to pick a theme tailored to your liking.
One of the most popular ways to cruise New York is on the Spirit of New York dinner cruise. This cruise starts at Chelsea pier, the famous destination of the Titanic as it sailed from England. Now it is an an entertainment complex and houses several cruise charters of the harbor. You will cruise past the Empire State Building and the site of the World Trade Centers on your way down the harbor. You can expect to cruise under all three historic bridges on your cruise down New York harbor. You of course will see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, two of the most iconic figures of America. All in all, you get the major sights from the quiet deck of a ship, as you drink a glass of wine and listen to the surf.
The next time you plan a trip to New York, make sure you skip the hustle and the trouble of getting downtown for dinner in all the traffic. Instead, make the choice to cruise New York harbor at dinner time. It's a great experience for the family as well as providing great photo opportunities to some of the most famous sights in the world!
