  • What’s the craic, you ask? A Hornblower happy hour cruise on St. Patrick’s Day! Hornblower will be hosting a special St. Paddy’s day cruise aboard Alive After Five to celebrate all things green and Irish, and maybe a few things amber and bubbly… or should we say dark and stout?

    Vibe: Relax, mix, mingle, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

  • Right after the NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade finishes — or even if you didn’t make the parade — head over to Pier 15 and jump aboard Alive After Five for a happy hour to make the Irish happy.

    Forget the St Patrick’s Day bar crawl, make it a bar cruise, where you’ll have the luck of the Irish with amazing views of NYC and happy hour vibes. Get a group together and make it a celebration worthy of St. Patrick.

    Take in all the sites, from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, to Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge and amazing views of the NYC skyline. Meanwhile enjoy the company of good friends, good drinks and music courtesy of our onboard DJ.

    NYC’s most unique happy hour and party cruises!
