What to wear in NYC this spring break

layers resized 600

Spring has sprung here in New York City, but Mother Nature sure has been fickle recently. This can make wardrobe selection practically impossible for spring break. Especially if you've never been to NYC!  We've ditched the gloves and scarves, but the rest is still in closet limbo. With temperatures that can not only swing day-to-day, but also fluctuate dramatically in the same day; packing can be a big guessing game. So, if you're over stuffing your suitcase in a clothes-strewn frenzy, don't panic. We've got you covered. Here are your packing essentials:

Today, FEARnet - popular TV, video and web destination for horror programming - told our most famous ghost story to the web: the abandoned Circle Line V ship that washed up in the Ohio River. We just wanted to give a bit more background color on their spooky findings:

Reserved Ticketing Offers Guests More Flexibility at Circle Line

If you've ever taken a Circle Line cruise, or even seen Pier 83 in the summertime, you know we can get pretty busy! Our box office swarms with bustling travelers and view-hungry locals. This can lead to long lines at the box office. Currently, we offer our guests the ability to buy open vouchers online, which allows them to pick a cruise, but leave the time and date wide open. When they arrive, they must swap their voucher for a boarding pass. Starting today, we are proud to announce a whole new way to board - reserved ticketing. (Don't worry, we're still hanging on to the current method too - offering every kind of traveler the option to pick what best suits their suitcase. The only question you have to ask yourself is: what kind of traveler are you?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of the romantics out there! Speaking of which, we've been holding a love story contest for about a month now and chose our winners today! We had entries from far and wide and a lot of top contenders! The contest, Love at One Hundred & First Sight (or #Loveat101st) simply asked lovebirds around the world to send us a picture at any one of the 101 sights you can see from our Full Island Cruise. You did not have to be on a sightseeing cruise in order to participate. A cute shot at the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty worked just fine.

Lighting of the Ships and Boat Parade a Sparkling Success

This past Monday Circle Line Sightseeing, along with sister company World Yacht Dinner Cruises, launched our first annual Holidays on the Hudson: Lighting of the Ships and Boat Parade. We are beyond pleased at the way the first-ever event turned out. Kicked off by a one-of-a-kind Rudolph the Red Nose Tugboat, followed by a harmonious quartet of professional carolers, a special appearance by the man in red himself and a decadent display of lights - we'd say the event had everything needed for making spirits bright. Oh, and hot cocoa too!

It has come to our attention this week, that an unnamed (cough, Time Out, cough, cough) publication has called us the "T" word.

Wrapping up our ten week series of blogging on board our boats, we culminated #bloggeronboard with a night cruise.

5 Things to 'Bear' in Mind for a Bear Mountain Cruise


Our Bear Mountain Cruises are fully underway, and so is the autumn foliage. #BloggeronBoard hopped on our favorite fall cruise up the Hudson River on Sunday to check out the scenery, the hiking and of course, Oktoberfest. With several available dates left - some sold out and some remaining - we wanted to let our readers know some insider tips before they head up the mountain. This blog is all about preparedness so here are the ways we found for you to act like a boy scout before you take a hike with us to Bear Mountain State Park.

All aboard our Kids Cruise!

Our Kids Cruise is perhaps the best thing that ever happened to parents (and kids) on the weekend. Launched in 2012, we offer trips up the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty specifically for the little ones from 10am  to 11:15am from April through October. Here's a look at Saturday's cruise, which offered everything from face painters to magicians to the Anna Banana Band. There is also a narrator to offer fun facts about the Statue of Liberty. We only have one Kids Cruise left for the season, so be sure to buy your tickets now for October 26th. We will even have the Berenstain Bears aboard that one!
