Partying outside of the house means you won’t have to articulate to the landlord why you decided to dye the carpet a deep shade of sangria. Paint the town red with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get one admission to a Thanksgiving Eve party cruise from Above All Cruises on Wednesday, November 23, from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (a $79 value). The cruise includes:
- A Thanksgiving dinner buffet
- Two alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks
- A live DJ all evening<p>
The entertainment pros at Above All Cruises launch partygoers into a whirlwind night of dinner and dancing with staggering views of the city’s skyline aboard its fleet of soiree vessels. This Turkey Day Eve, the Harbor Lights cutter, the classic Paddlewheel Queen, and the chic Rendezvous depart to fill the waters with harvest festivities. All ships sport multiple decks and dining rooms as handsome as a penguin in a tuxedo, where attendees can sip drinks such as apple cider, chardonnay, merlot, beer, and soda. The hot buffet powers up to three hours of shimmying with a display that includes traditional Thanksgiving fare such as roasted turkey with cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, mac ‘n’ cheese, cornbread, and string-beans almandine. All evening, shipspace echoes with the sounds of Top 40 jams freshly spun by a live DJ, who also accepts requests for vintage disco, simmering salsa, and classic crooners to ensure partiers ring in the holiday just like the Pilgrims did: wearing giant buckles and listening to Frank Sinatra. Since the ships have enclosed decks, passengers can don whatever eveningwear inspires the mood for revelry, from upscale club duds to sea-captain casual.
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 in one of three luxury ships: Lucille, Paddlewheel Queen, and Harbor Lights. Although each vessel flaunts its own personality and design, all three sport dance floors, flat-screen TVs, and hunger-quelling dinners. Experienced captains ensure that cruises always stay on course, and equally experienced DJs keep dance floors afloat with energetic songs.
