Where® IN New York Staff Takes to the High Seas

As I mentioned last week, spring is finally here, which means its time to enjoy the city’s many outdoor activities. My workers at Where® IN New York and I did just that a few weeks ago on a Hornblower Cruises & Events sail around NYC’s waterways.
The cruise company recently opened for the season and has two locations in NYC: Pier 40 in the West Village, specializing in dining sails and private event charters; and Pier 15 at the South Street Seaport, which focuses on happy hour sails, tours and nightlife cruises.

On a warm Thursday evening, we enjoyed the company’s two-hour Alive After Five Cruise, which sailed out of Pier 15. The fun-filled happy hour cruise featured an almost never-ending rotation of food—including an Italian sausage station, featuring everything needed to make the perfect sandwich; melt-in-your-mouth sliders and perfectly seasoned fries; a New York Deli Carving Counter, packed with plenty of items (think turkey, pastrami, mini potato knishes and pickles) that give a shout out to the city’s culinary roots; pizza and Coney Island-inspired hotdogs with all the fixins’. We soaked up the yummy fare with cocktails from the open bar and later used the liquid courage to head to the dance floor. The DJ played an eclectic mix of current hits and was more than accommodating when it came to requests.

Of course no cruise is complete without beautiful views, and we were all able to take in the sights, including Lady Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and the awe-inspiring Lower Manhattan cityscape from the decks on the front and rear of the ship.
If you’re looking for a cool way to bond with coworkers or just want an alternative to the conventional happy hour scene, check out the Alive After Five Cruise from Hornblower Cruises & Events. To learn more about the company’s offerings, click here.
