Because the date for Valentine's Day changes each year depending on the liturgical calendar, it can be easy to forget what day it falls on. Today's side deal will cover you in case you forgot this year's date, and especially if you forgot to procure a date for this year's date. For $15, singles can get a two-hour "Last Chance" Valentine's Day cruise with Statue Cruises (up to a $35 value). The cruise launches at 9 pm on February 13. New Jersey folks can board at 8 p.m. in Liberty State Park, and New Yorkers can climb aboard at 8:30 p.m. from Battery Park.
This decadent cruise will give the lovelorn ample chance to spend Valentine's Day with their special someone, whoever that ends up being. To facilitate this, Statue Cruises will provide hors d'ouvres, a cash bar ($3 shots and drink discounts), live entertainment, a dance floor, single people, and romantic vistas of New York's fabulous skyline. By 11 p.m., you and the pair of eyes you've been staring dreamily into will be back ashore to ring in Valentine's Day in whatever way you see fit.
Several times throughout the day, Statue Cruises ferries depart from Liberty State Park in New Jersey and Battery Park in New York, traveling towards an iconic symbol of freedom: the Statue of Liberty. So long as the statue isn't away on vacation, passengers can alight at Liberty Island and view the statue. Statue Cruises' vessels also dock at Ellis Island, where guests can explore the rich history of immigrants who came to start a new life in the United States. And the sightseeing doesn't stop once they've stepped back on board—the harbor cruises boast magnificent views of Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and more.
