When it comes to romantic evenings, it's hard to beat a dinner cruise — what with its breathtaking views, gourmet meals, and steely resolve to enjoy riding in the same vehicle together for two hours.
Get that amorous, and with gourmet eats by the chef from celebrated NYC restos Landmarc and Ditch Plains, during Benchmarc Events’ first-ever Summer Cruise Series, tickets on sale now.

Each Tuesday night in July, Chef Marc Murphy will be hosting a two-hour cruise of New York Harbor aboard a two-story NY Waterways ferry.
Tonight: a “Red White and Blue” celebration featuring Murphy’s signature Big Marc Burger and tri-colored cocktails. Upcoming wavy gravies include:
- 7/10 – A “Bastille Day” celebration of French-inflected eats
- 7/17 – “Beef, Bourbon & Beer,” with craft brews and rare bourbons
- 7/24 – A “Bluegrass & Bayou” evening of spicy Cajun dishes and live bluegrass
- 7/31 – “Swine and Sparkling Wine,” with pan-global bubbles and roast suckling pig
Cruises run 8-10pm, departing from the World Financial Pier and circling down for a view of the harbor, bridges, skyline, and Statue of Liberty.
Depending on how steely your resolve, you may ask the captain to take a second lap.
