My wife and I loved this jazzy getaway from the city. It was our first time in the city, and we were looking for something romantic to do. Couldn't have asked for anything better. This jazz cruise was the first time we felt like we got that "Manhattan experience".
Statue of Liberty is amazing

Sunset cruise are the best and the jazz band accompanying the sun setting was absolutely beautiful! It was great enjoying being a tourist in our own city! We will go again!
We’ll worth it
Dottie_B, July 2021
It was a beautiful day and the cruise was lovely. Hard to hear the music unless you were sitting close but we spent most of the time outside the cabin anyway. I was disappointing we didn’t go up the East River though.
Dan_and_Bonniesue, July 2021
Getting to the boat on time! Almost missed it! Crew was great, music wonderful and Hudson River was magical.
So special.
Amy_A, May 2021
The views and ambiance is unmatched. Thrilled with how intimate and cozy it was. The only thing I have to say is the jazz music was hard to hear from where we were sitting, which was a bummer, would have loved to hear it playing!
Not impressed
TraceySue_H, May 2021
Very disappointed. Paid over $100 per person for an hour and a half boat ride. The jazz was ok. The mixed drinks were nasty and the wine selection poor. You could not see the band from where most people sat. Just as the lights started coming on we docked. On a positive note we got an amazing picture of the statue of liberty with the sunset. Not the romantic evening I was hoping for at all.
For a birthday Queen
