About the Father's Day Brunch Cruise
Beer is one of the oldest beverages known to man (seriously, it dates back to at least the fifth millennium BC), and we like to imagine that dads of old liked to repose with a good brewsky just as much as they do today. It's with beer-loving dads in mind that Hornblower Cruises presents its Father’s Day Beer Brunch Cruise. Indeed, what better time to let dad do his best Homer Simpson than Father's Day?
The two-hour cruise pulls out all the stops with a bevy of bottomless beer options (Bud, Bud Light, Heineken, Stella, Brooklyn Lager, Corona), as well as unlimited mimosas and Champagne to celebrate the big day. Nondrinkers aren't forgotten with an unlimited soda and juice option, and there's a cash bar for all other beverages. The decadence continues with the brunch menu, which includes a spread fit for a king. With scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, Applewood smoked bacon, home-friend potatoes, French toast, muffins, danishes, bagels, roasted chicken, a carving station, a fish special of the day, and a dessert station filled with an assortment of seasonal sweets, no one will walk away from this feast hungry. As a bonus, dads and their families can enjoy their meal to the delightful sounds of a live jazz band.
Beyond the unlimited beverages and buffet and live entertainment, the New York Father’s Day Beer Brunch Cruise impresses with a two-hour trip along New York City’s waterways. Cruisers will have full views of the best sights Manhattan has to offer, including the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. It’s a perfect opportunity for dads to get out of the crowded city and onto a comfortable yacht.
California casual attire is recommended, such as khaki pants and collared shirts. Shorts, tank tops, flip-flops, and gym shoes are highly discouraged. The yacht sails rain or shine, but in the case of severe weather the ship may remain dockside while still providing all services. Boarding begins 30 minutes to one hour before cruising time; all ships leave on time, so make sure to arrive with plenty of time to spare.
Two hours; boarding begins at noon and the cruise runs from 12:30-2:30pm.
