World Yacht cruises in New York City offers dinner or lunch cruises around Manhattan that serve traditional Thanksgiving meals.

Not for the easily seasick, World Yacht cruises is offering a new spin on classic Thanksgiving dining: enjoying the turkey aboard a cruise ship. The New York-based cruise ship tour company offers three different Thanksgiving meals aboard one of their yachts, taking guests on a scenic tour around Manhattan. During Thanksgiving Day, the meal options include lunch, buffet-style dinner, and a sit-down, plated dinner.

The Thanksgiving lunch is a two-hour-long cruise to the Statue of Liberty, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., during which a traditional Thanksgiving spread will be served. Dishes include slow-roasted breast of turkey, giblet gravy, cornbread stuffing, a cheese plate, pumpkin pie, and much more.

If you're interested in seeing the majestic view of New York City in the dark, one of the dinner cruises might be a better option. The seated and plated menu starts out with an amuse bouche (choice of the chef), followed by a choice of appetizer, entrée, and a dessert. Besides the most traditional dish of turkey, dishes also include lobster mac and cheese, pistachio-crusted salmon, and filet mignon au poivre. Pumpkin cheesecake with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and fresh berries is served for dessert.

During the buffet-style dinner cruise, diners can pick their favorite dishes among a wide selection of classic and modern Thanksgiving fixings, similar to the menu offered during lunch.

Both dinner cruises are three hours long, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
