Advice for Visitors


  • The winter cruise schedule is limited and some cruises are seasonal, so plan ahead. Check available cruises for your travel dates: or call (212) 563-3200 before you go.
  • Be sure to download the Circle Line Skyline Navigator App before your cruise. Available in seven languages, it narrates the famous sites of New York City from your seat on the boat. Available from both Apple and Google Play stores.
  • If you would like to sail on the Harbor Lights cruise, be sure to arrive early, as there is only one departure per day, and it can sell out.
  • Located close to midtown, Circle Line offers multiple cruise times each day, making it easy to find a time that works with your schedule.
  • Enjoy the onboard café and full bar with a freshly prepared menu and hot and cold beverages available for purchase.
  • While arriving 45-60 minutes prior to cruise departure is usually enough time to board your cruise, during busy times, some cruises fill quickly.
