Last weekend, I celebrated Halloween on a boat! Hornblower New York, a premier dinner cruise and private event charter company, hosted a fun Halloween edition cruise called Alive After Five. I was super thrilled to be able to enjoy this incredible experience where you’re on the water for two hours enjoying music, cocktails, bar bites, lounging, and great views. I loved seeing Downtown Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Jersey City waterfront, and the Brooklyn Bridge from the comfort of a luxurious boat! The weather was absolutely perfect with a light breeze, but I like that the boat sails rain or shine.
The atmosphere on the boat was just as great as the weather. A lot of guests dressed up and my favorite costumes included Beetle Juice, a witch, a ghost, a 70s disco dancer, and a race car driver. I also liked the Halloween decorations: pumpkin streamers, raven paper lanterns, “BOO!” signs, scary fake animals, and more. The DJ played a great selection of current hits that had the crowd dancing all night. For those who didn’t want to dance, the boat was certainly comfortable with ample chairs and couches. The food was also delicious and included pizza, tomato and mozzarella salad, fries, cheeseburgers, and a veggie spread.
This is just one of the many lively boat cruises that Hornblower New York hosts. Following Alive After Five, there was Rock the Yacht, a 3-hour cruise for those who liked a later night. There’s also a Champagne Brunch Cruise, a Lunch Cruise, and City Sightseeing Cruise among other boat experiences during the year. The experiences are entertaining, memorable, and unparalleled. I will definitely be back on a Hornblower New York cruise soon!
