We scheduled an evening dinner cruise for our business group of 25 people. We chose the Bateaux due to comments by past customers and from Internet research. The process to arrange our large group was very easy and Erin/Sara were great to work with. Although our group was on the boat with other customers, we felt like we had a... More

We booked the Bateaux on 24th March 2017, we were a party of 11 including 4 children for our wedding evening. The service from start to finish the service was just amazing. We were truly looked after by our server. He made a real fuss of the children and provided kids meals for them. The food itself was just delicious.... More

We went with 2 visitors from Italy who were visiting for the first time. We went on a Tuesday evening in March. This is a pricy trip, but I believe worth it. We parked at the pier (which cost $52 for 4 hours beware!) We were greeted on the boat and everything fell into place. The boat was only about... More

We had the open bar VIP Package and we were made to feel very special from start to finish. The food was extremely good and the drinks were well prepared. The jewel in the crown for Bateaux is its staff though, a great team who get the hospitality thing spot on. Views along the way were spot on and the... More

Having been on a Spirit Cruise last year we really wanted to do another buffet cruise and chose the Bateaux. Food was nice and the views were well worth it. However we selected a Brunch cruise and the theme appeared to be champagne, wine etc. I asked for a beer for my husband and a cider for myself and he... More

I just cannot explain how amazing this entire experience was. Yes, It is a little pricey - However it is well worth it! I booked this for a Christmas & Birthday present for my partner. We also recently got engaged so it was also to celebrate this. I decided to book the VIP package as it came with the drinks,... More

We reserved months in advance. We were excited for the trip and all was top shelf from the greeting to the boat (which was fabulously smooth) to the very attentive staff. We were offered upgraded options for our meals and decided on the filet and tail. We also splurged on an expensive Cabernet. As it happened there was a glitch... More

The food was really-really delicious, the Ship Captain joyfully greeted us and the overall service from everyone was incredible! The music was wonderful and the ship was beautiful, and very clean. Loved the views and the Statue of... More

We had our wedding party on the Bateaux in Oct 2014, but although the evening was perfect, it passed pretty much in a blur. So returning to New York, we decided to treat ourselves to the deluxe package, and boy!, was it worth it..... Champagne and canapés on arrival. We were greeted by Peter who attended to us all evening.... More

From start to finish this was a memorable occasion. We were greeted by the friendliest staff and instantly offered drinks to start off our evening. The entertainment was excellent and also provided us with some local knowledge of the sites we were passing at the time. The food was very impressive and timed perfectly throughout the night to make sure... More

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.
