Dinner Cruise with Fish Bar at North River Landing

Earlier this month I was asked to go on a dinner cruise with Fish Bar at North River Landing. I’ve never done a dinner cruise before and had the best time. It was such a fun experience and a unique way to take in the NYC skyline.

We boarded the ship right as the sun started to set and then sat on the upper deck watching the sky until we pulled away from the dock. The atmosphere was seriously fun. I’ve always loved being on a boat; I’ve found them relaxing even since I was a baby. Sitting out on the deck watching the sky light up orange, then pink, and finally purple I could feel the day’s stress melting away!

Since this was my first ever dinner cruise, I wasn’t sure how the whole thing worked. It ended up being fancy and low-key in the best possible ways. We ordered everything, right down the dessert, at the beginning and then paced the dinner with our server so we could break and go outside every now and again.


Garrett and I are obsessed with calamari and order it pretty much every meal. Fish Bar‘s was delicious and the perfect way to kick off our dinner.


The NYC skyline always gets me; it’s even more spectacular at night!!

The Fish Bar would be great for a date night, tourists wanting to see the city in a unique way, dinner with coworkers, or a girls’ night out.

This looks like such a fun time!! I recently moved away from NYC and stuff like this makes me miss it so much. <3

I went on a more casual version of a dinner cruise with North River Lobster Co.! They had the BEST Lobster Rolls and the views of the city were amazing. I would love to try a night time dinner cruise like you went on – it looks divine!

What an awesome opportunity! My husband and I have always wanted to do a dinner cruise (we’ve been on many vacations where they’re offered) but I’ve always been hesitant…we may take the plunge on our next vacay!
