5 Things to remember when planning the perfect date for your Valentine in NYC

5 Things to remember when planning the perfect date for your Valentine!


  1. Crowds are NOT romantic.

Restaurants are packed to the max, all those date ideas you searched for on the internet, also crowded. This Valentine’s Day think of something that take you away from the normal hustle of New York City.  A get-away in NYC.  Atlantis Yacht Valentine’s Day cruise will be you and your Valentine’s romantic get-away from everyday life in the big city, while taking a step back and admiring the city! 

  1. Yes, Wine & Dine, but think MEMORIES

Honestly, how many dates do you actually remember?  You want your date to have a great time and remember this day because of the time you shared.  What makes a date memorable?  Do something out of the ordinary!  There are also a few things you may need to check off: Food – Drinks – Dessert.  But overall, it’s the experience.  When you experience something together for the first time, it’s something that you will not forget.  So, ditch the run-of-the-mill dinner.  A dinner cruise aboard Atlantis Yacht checks off all the boxes, but it also provides an experience.  You and your date will enjoy exquisite dishes, delectable cocktails, and breathtaking views, while aboard this distinctively styled yacht.

  1. Photo Opts are a must!

We’re living in the age of social media, so as they say, and “do it for the ‘gram’- Look for a location that will have great photo opportunities for you and your valentine.  They will cherish these moments and brag on social media about how wonderful their date was!  Dinner Cruises offer great views of the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn, and New Jersey.  Magnificent Backdrops = Perfect Photos = Fantastic Date

  1. Excellent Service, but intimate

Valentine’s Day is all about intimacy with your date.  You want the quiet conversation without the waitstaff rushing you through the meal to get the next table seated.  Resturants tend to hurry you through your meal so they can seat as many people as they could on this day.  Choose a location that has a limit on seating, not their capacity!  Also, look for a location that has one seating only, ensuring that you and your date will not be rushed through your Valentine’s Day meal.  Atlantis yacht does not seat at capacity for any events, guaranteeing a leisurely, laid back, romantic atmosphere.  There is only one seating, so you will not be rushed.  Eat, Drink, Dance, Enjoy the views, and most of all enjoy your company. 

  1. Romance includes Fun!

You may want to choose a location that offers more than one thing to do during your date.  For example, is there another room to chat with other couples (your date may want to socialize a little bit) or maybe take it to the dancefloor?  Atlantis yacht not only offers first floor dining with tables for your individual party, but it also has a second deck lounge with a DJ, large bar, and dancing.  Maybe you feel it’s too soon to be all romance and you want to let loose with your date, you can both escape to the lounge!


Make your Valentine’s Day a date to remember with an experience you’ll never forget!
