NYC Wedding Reception


I am wondering if someone could help. My partner and I are travelling to NY from Scotland next April to get married in Central Park. All aspects of the wedding are organised except for the Wedding reception. We will have around 30 guests and are thinking about booking The Spirit of New York dinner cruise. I have read some mixed reviews for this cruise from holiday makers, but not many reviews from people who have had their reception onboard, or from guests who attended a Wedding reception. Is there anyone who would be able to give their views of this cruise?

I am aware there are more formal cruises available, but we are really looking for a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of drinks and dancing. We are more concerned about giving our guests a unique experience than a traditional run of the mill wedding meal. (Having said that, I do have concerns that it is a buffet style dinner and need reassurance that the food is of a good standard!)

Thanks in advance!

I think it's fairly pricey, but if you want a unique NYC experience for a small party, you could try renting 632 Hudson:

How about the Terrace Room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art? The Museum also has an outside terrace. For more information, see:

We are getting married in New York next year and was looking at the spirit/bateaux cruise dinners, so I too would be interested in peoples opinions of this.
