We took the Spirit dinner cruise with three teenagers and we all had a great time. The views were amazing with opportunity for photos from the open top deck. The food and service were also high standard. Highly recommended.

I decided to go on this through a recommendation of a friend. Well it didn't disappoint one bit! When booking I put that this was for my wife's birthday. I didn't think much of it but every single employee we spoke too wished her a happy Birthday which was a really nice touch. Once we got our tickets we boarded... More

We booked this 3 hour cruise around NYC for our daughters 18th birthday party. I was disappointed because we had fewer than 20 people, so were not permitted to speak with an event planner. Wanted to perhaps hire a photographer & have a cake supplied by Spirit. Turns out we were fine without using one. We brought our own cake... More

We were there for a family birthday. The timing of everything from the dinner hour to pictures outside, to dessert and dancing was very well done. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to plan a party and have everything taken care of for you!

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
