Your waiter will invite you to our Grande Dinner Buffet, where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare. Everything is freshly prepared in our shipboard galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet.
Savor your culinary selections over perfectly-paced dinner music and a never-ending view of Manhattan's breathtaking skyline seen through our huge panoramic windows. Truly, a sight you won't soon forget!
While you relax over coffee and dessert, Broadway-quality performers will dazzle you with song and dance on the center stage.
After the show, take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in town while Manhattan's magnificent skyline spreads before you in all directions. It's a wonderful pause before the music entices you onto the dance floor.
