Hornblower Cruises docks at the piers for the time being

Dear Editor:

Having proudly served the cities of New York and New Jersey for over three decades, the health and safety of our guests and team members continues to be our top priority. To aid the country’s efforts to lessen the impact of Coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to pause our operation until further notice.

Like many in this uncertain time, we are taking each day as it comes. The situation is constantly changing, as are the needs of the community. We are prepared to move quickly, reevaluate, and resume operations when it’s safe and legal to do so. We are currently accepting bookings from May onwards.

We are honored to provide dining, excursion and private charter experiences on the Hudson River to guests from around the country and the world. These visits fuel the local economy and jobs. Our broader industry has called on Washington to establish a fund to keep workers employed and provide emergency liquidity to help keep travel businesses open. Congress must act now to ensure New York’s tourism industry can sustain itself through this painful economic period.

All of us at Hornblower Cruises and Events would like to thank the people of the New York metropolitan area for their tremendous support.
Yours,

Nilda Bracero
