Hudson's at Pier 81 : Brunch, Dinner or Just Drinks Cruise ...You Pick
Hudson’s is a 3-story cruise ship, restaurant & bar in NYC. The cruise takes you from Midtown to the Statue of Liberty and back, with amazing views and plenty of photo ops.
We spent a weekend afternoon playing tourists on Hudson's dinner cruise. I had heard about this experience from friends and since it combined my two favorites; food & the chance to take photos - we decided to try it out.
The cruise is roughly two hours long and takes you to the Statue of Liberty and back to Midtown at Pier 81.
Guests can opt for the dining experience or just book for drinks. If you are going with friends, I would probably stick to drinks. For a more intimate and romantic experience, the dining option is a good choice.
You can book the cruise for dinner or brunch (with unlimited Mimosas) and they have the ability to handle large groups. Dinner includes a "Champagne Hour" prior to sailing & a three course dinner.
Know Before You Go:
Hudson's requires reservations for dinner & brunch.
Check the setlist before you go. Music can range from romantic to house music.
You can cut down on cost by going with their Observation Deck/ Lounge cocktails only option. Just remember this doesn't no guarantee you a seat/table.
The Menu changes, so check their site prior to booking.
