"Amazing Views and Yummy Food!"
September, 2016
We boarded for the Dinner Cruise and it was a perfect way to see the skyline at dusk with night lights. They have assigned seating for you and a server takes your drink order. Alcoholic drinks are available for an additional cost, but they have fun signature drinks to choose from. The food is served buffet style and is a large selection, I really enjoyed everything on the menu. You can leave your seat at any point and venture throughout the levels of the boat. This is perfect for any occasion and I would certainly do it again!

Took our high school music group on an evening harbor cruise aboard the New Jersey. The kids had a great time, the skyline was amazing, and the crew was attentive, all piloted by the steady hand of Capt. Jack. Highly recommend!

Spirit and Bateaux is a great way to experience the New York and New Jersey skylines. You get the relaxation of a cruise on the Hudson along with drinks, food, and music.

"Cold night, the night skyline was good."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 23, 2019
It was very cold, check the weather and dress up according to the freezing temperature. The buffet was alright, nothing special, the skyline is not that impressive, I think Chicago is much better. But the bottom line is the experience and the view of status of liberty was outstanding, very tough to compare.

Frequently Asked Questions about Spirit Cruises of New York

What is "Boarding Time" and "Cruising Time?"
"Boarding Time" is the earliest our guests may board the ship. Typically we begin boarding 1/2 hour prior to the "Cruise Time." Tickets are picked up at our dockside kiosk up-to one hour prior to the cruise.

What is the recommended dress code?
For men, appropriate attire includes slacks and a polo or button-down shirt. For women, nice slacks, capri pants or a sundress is recommended. Although allowed, we strongly discourage collarless t-shirts, jeans, shorts or athletic shoes.

Are there any age requirements?
Children are welcome on almost all our cruises. Children under 3 are complimentary and a discount is offered for children between the ages of 3 and 12 on select Lunch Cruises. We DO NOT offer Children’s pricing on dinner cruises.

Is the ship handicap accessible?
Yes. The Spirit has a deck and restrooms that can accommodate most standard-sized wheelchairs. Our crew is happy to aide passengers that need assistance. You can call in advance to discuss any accessibility concerns and ensure that you are seated on an accessible deck.

Is the vessel Coast Guard certified?
Yes. All of our ships are Coast Guard certified and maintained regularly to adhere to strict safety regulations.

Will I get seasick?
It's unlikely. The ships operate in New York Harbor, on the Hudson River and the East River, which are all very calm bodies of water. What's more, our ships are large and very stable, so in most cases, you can hardly tell that they're moving.

How is seating arranged on board?
Both the Spirit of New York and the Spirit of New Jersey feature cruise style seating. While we do offer tables for two, the majority of our tables accommodate four to eight people, and guests are sometimes seated with other parties in the tradition of ocean-going cruises.

What is your smoking policy?
All interior areas of our ship are non-smoking areas. Passengers who smoke may do so on the outdoor observation decks.

Do you sail in inclement weather?
Absolutely. Our ships are fully enclosed and climate-controlled for your comfort. We sail rain or shine year round.
