As the largest harbor cruise company in the United States, the Mother's Day Cruise (they offer various times throughout the day) is a great way to embrace NYC and enjoy a delicious brunch or lunch. This also includes a live DJ, dancing, stunning skyline views and the ability to enjoy a photo-opp before the cruise starts. There is also an incredible buffet with a salad station, entrees like tilapia, roasted chicken, and mac and cheese and sides like local veggies and garlic mashed potatoes. They also have pizza and chicken fingers for the kiddos. For Mother's Day, the cruises also include a complimentary Bloody Mary or Mimosa for Mom and free juice and soda for everyone.

In addition to the Mother's Day packages, you can also enjoy cruises with their standard brunch, lunch and dinner cruises throughout the spring season across its entire family of vessels. A longtime favorite for seasoned New Yorkers and visitors to the city, these cruises are the perfect way to welcome warmer weather. "As the warm weather approaches, the anticipation of spring can be felt all throughout New York City as people are anxious to get outside and embrace the sunshine," said Christine Metivier, vice president and general manager of Spirit Cruises.

"Whether it's a passenger's first time sailing with us or if they're a frequent guest of our fleet of vessels, we consistently deliver on first-rate service, delicious cuisine and provide one of the greatest viewing locations of the island of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty."

Entertainment Cruises of New York and New Jersey's vessels include Spirit of New York and Spirit of New Jersey, which feature vibrant dining, dancing, a live DJ, entertainment and breathtaking views.
