The boat was cozy and warm with holiday decorations. The live band was a surprise as we didn't expect live music. They were very good and our college age musicians thought the saxophone player was especially good! Drinks and snacks available throughout the cruise and cookies were served after the sing-a-long. You could go out on deck to view scenery and take photos. Lots of fun!

Special, romantic - good old fashioned Christmas celebration

This was our fist time to New York City and this was our last event of our trip. It was so special. We loved it! The staff on the boat were all so friendly and the jazz band was excellent. The views of the City at night were breathtaking and seeing the statue of liberty from the water with the lights and the fog was inspirational and made us realize how blessed we are to be an American. Singing Christmas carols was something we haven't done in years --- we loved everything about the event and highly recommend it for a couple or a family. -- Awesome!
