$35 for a Four-Hour Mother’s Day Cruise ($69 Value)
A cruise ship picks up passengers at Skyport Marina on Sunday, May 12, for a relaxing excursion that runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. While stealing glimpses of New York City's glimmering skyline and the Statue of Liberty, guests can savor one complimentary cocktail, beer, wine, or soda per person and torch calories on the dance floor as a live DJ spins Top 40 hits. Nibblers can also approach the cash bar to purchase additional drinks or finger food.
Above All Cruises
The advocates of ocean-based travel at Above All Cruises unveil awe-inspiring views of New York City's sprawling skyline during weekly and holiday cruises that set sail out of Skyport Marina or World's Fair Marina. Rather than engaging in terra firma's exhausting recreational activities, such as hiking or the Running of the Taxis, visitors can while away the evening on a luxury ship. Although each vessel flaunts its own personality and design, all sport dance floors, flat-screen TVs, and hunger-quelling dinner options. Experienced captains ensure that cruises always stay on course, and equally experienced DJs keep dance floors afloat with energetic songs.
