July 4th: Louisa of The Seas Dinner Cruise

Join us aboard our luxury Yacht, Louisa, to celebrate our national independence with an unforgettable experience! Embark on a 4th of July fireworks cruise in New York Harbor, where you'll enjoy the best vantage point for witnessing NYC's spectacular display of fireworks. Bring your family and friends on board our elegant boats for an evening filled with excitement and enchantment.

With a capacity to comfortably accommodate up to 130 passengers, we prioritize ensuring ample space for each guest. By limiting reservations for large events to this number, we ensure that everyone can move freely about the ship, offering the best views and an enjoyable experience for all.

As you sail through the harbor, marvel at iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge illuminated against the night sky. Our cruise offers prime seating to witness the dazzling Macy’s fireworks show, ensuring you have an up-close and personal view of the festivities.

But that's not all! Delight your senses with live music, a DJ spinning tunes, and indulge in a July 4th themed six-course meal featuring elevated gourmet versions of BBQ classics, succulent chicken, and gourmet hotdogs. Our full bar will be serving up specially crafted Independence Day cocktails, and each guest will receive a complimentary beer or glass of wine to enhance the celebratory atmosphere.

Experience the magic of the fireworks display, featuring new effects to watch for, such as a mile-wide waving flag with red, white & blue palm & strobing shells, a sunflower ring with crackling pistil shells, and new Ghost pyro with four different alternating hues. With 30 different colors and patterns lighting up the sky, and thousands of shells dancing 1,000 feet high above the water, it's an extravaganza not to be missed!

Don't miss this opportunity to create lasting memories with your loved ones as you cruise along the sparkling waters of New York Harbor, surrounded by the beauty and excitement of the 4th of July festivities. Reserve your seats now for an unforgettable Independence Day celebration!
