There’s no shortage of opportunity for amorous interludes in New York. After all, some of the most memorable romantic film scenes in movie history were shot here. Think of Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal strolling through Central Park’s autumn leaves in When Harry Met Sally
, Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard embracing in the rain on a picturesque Upper East Side avenue in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
, or Woody Allen and Diane Keaton canoodling on a park bench under the Queensborough Bridge looking out over the East River in Manhattan
You and your valentine can soak up the cinematic scenery along the East River, too, on a relaxing dinner cruise along one of the world’s largest natural waterways. You’ll create some memorable romantic moments of your own when you climb aboard the luxurious climate-controlled ship courtesy of World Yacht’s Valentine’s Day dinner cruise, which sails across the Hudson and up the East River illuminated by the city lights. The nautical tour boasts full views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. Get cozy on one of the upper decks as the ship lingers at the Statue of Liberty, and dine and dance on the decks below while you’re surrounded by the majestic Manhattan skyline towering over the New York Harbor.
Valentine’s Day only comes only once a year, so spoil yourself and your companion. World Yacht has two packages per cruise -- the standard gold and gold premier. Each package includes complimentary champagne and a red rose.
For 2015, the World Yacht Valentine’s Day Cruises take place on February 13 and 14. Boarding starts at 6pm for a 7pm departure. The yacht returns to Pier 81 at 10pm. Advance reservations for this cruise are strongly recommended.
The World Yacht Valentine’s Day Cruise runs three hours.
