Riding on a yacht is the only way to experience total luxury without bobbing for chunks of caviar in an aquarium filled with champagne. Live richly with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a three-hour yacht cruise for two (an $80 value) along the New York Harbor, and two drinks (up to a $30 value), from World Yacht (up to a $110 value). Boarding begins at 6 p.m. at Pier 81 on the Hudson River, and boats depart at 7 p.m. World Yacht abides by a standard yachting dress code, so men should sport jackets or dress coats, and women should favor business-casual attire. No T-shirts, shorts, sandals, or sneakers are allowed. This Groupon does not include dinner, though it can be purchased for an extra fee.
World Yacht's scenic cruise along the picturesque New York Harbor orchestrates an elegant night out for visitors and urbanites alike. After embarking on one of the fleet's three unique vessels Duchess, guests can stroll along indoor and outdoor decks, sip two drinks at the bar, and attempt to spot a wild foghorn across the open water. Enjoy views of the monumental Empire State Building, cruise beneath the historic Brooklyn Bridge, and critique Lady Liberty's latest hairstyle as the ship continues on its southward circuit. A rotating lineup of energetic DJs and live musicians soundtrack views of Manhattan's glittering skyline, allowing yachters' limbs to slide through their smoothest dance moves as their eyes soak up the cosmopolitan backdrop.
