OMG! Best, VERY BEST experience during our recent trip to NYC during Christmas!!! Loved every single thing about this activity. We took the 1.5hr Holiday Jazz Cruise. The views (and pics) of the city lights and of course the Statue of Liberty, were absolutely breathtaking! This BTW was a great first night activity followed by a wonderful elegant dinner, just to be able to relax and sit (and have a nice toddy- highly recommend the hot chocolate spiked with Bailey's!). Staff was amazing, friendly, fun! Musicians and music was amazing and so relaxing/special! The boat was absolutely BEAUTIFUL AND WARM! LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED this activity and HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Thank yall for a FABULOUS TIME!

Booked this when most of Broadway shut down and our one big night of theatre was canceled…and while it wasn’t ‘Music Man’, it was AWESOME! We knew nothing about it, but took a chance and it ended up being our favorite thing to do on our quick little jaunt to NYC (a surprise 48 hour trip for me because apparently my husband loves me more than he fears flying, and we finally decided to start living life even though we’ll run out of money soon lol). Fun, warm, inviting atmosphere with a first-rate jazz trio (and my husband and I are both music educators so we know what we’re talking about). The first drink is free, and my Manhattan had enough liquor in it to last the entire cruise, which made this jaunt even more fun. Although it was a very overcast evening, the lights of the city against the dark water made us feel like we were part of a beautiful painting, and lady liberty was simply glowing. All of this paired with a very friendly and welcoming crew made it a perfect evening.

You must do this tour

Excellent tour, we did it at night, the beautiful view, the hot chocolate, the best we had, and the best, a jazz band playing live. The staff atiey very well. It is a luxury yacht cruise for up to 60 people, all comfortably seated at a table. From my perspective it fulfills the three B's, well, nice, cheap. Very good relation cost quality.
