On Thursday, August 29th, my husband and I attended the social media event, Handles and Hashtags sponsored by Circle Line 42. It was a beautiful evening for a 2-hour cruise where all of us Social Media invitees were competing about making the best tweet of the evening with the Hashtag given when we entered the cruise and the handle we had chosen for ourselves.
It was fun to mix and mingle with other like-minded social media workers and especially a great way to meet people when talking about different fun tweets.
The cruise was beautiful, sailing around the skyline of Manhattan and under the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge. I have never sailed so close to the Statue of Liberty without actually sailing to the island.
Thursday evening is their Thirsty Thursday DJ Cruise; A special cruise for the party crowd. The DJ made sure we had enough great music to create sporadic and spontaneous dance floors. The bartenders were friendly and very helpful; I had never seen such a ordered line for booze. Downstairs there was food as it was dinner time and it is always good to have something to eat before drinking a lot of booze.
For only $26, you get a cruise around the city with a DJ and the possibility of buying cocktails and food. Other cruises, such as the full island cruise or the semi island cruise, are between $35 and $39.
It is a great way to start a party and move on after the cruise to keep partying. But the cruise can also just be a romantic place for you and your special someone. Or if you are a tourist who wants to have a great view of Manhattan and the beautiful islands surround the tip of Manhattan this is a great cruise trip around the island.
