Mother’s Day Ideas: Brunch on the Hudson

Treat your mom this Mother’s Day to a special brunch cruise on the Hudson in New York City

Spirit Cruises will offer brunch and dinner cruises on the Hudson on-board an elegant glass-enclosed vessel.

If you’re looking to treat your mom to a special Mother’s Day out in New York City but want to skip the traditional restaurant brunch then try taking her on a brunch cruise instead. Spirit Cruises and Bateaux are offering special Mother’s Day cruises aboard the Bateaux, which will cruise down the Hudson offering spectacular views of the skyline while you dine in style.

Departing from Chelsea Pier and Lincoln Harbor on Spirit Cruises, the lunch (and dinner) cruises will serve up a decked-out buffet featuring new menu items designed by “Chopped” champion Chef Eric Levine along with DJ entertainment for a casual yet fun Mother’s Day celebration.

For an elegant experience the luxurious Bateaux will offer a Mother’s Day champagne brunch cruise starting at $74.90 per person, which comes with a free mimosa for moms along with menu items such as cinnamon French toast with bananas Foster's syrup or Amish roast chicken. Bateaux also offers a stylish dinner cruise (starting at $129.90 per person) where passengers can feast on braised short rib of beef, or ginger roasted Chatham cod.


And if the breathtaking views of New York City from the glass-enclosed vessel aren’t entertainment enough, there will also be live music to even the mood provided by the ship’s own talented jazz pianist. More information can be found on their website
