Our family loved the cruise! The jazz band was great. The cruise staff members were excellent. We very much enjoyed the nighttime views of New York (it also helped that we had a clear night with no rain or snow). The boat was decorated nicely for the holidays, which added to the atmosphere. What a fun time! Overall, we highly recommend this activity.


Oh we enjoyed this river trip so much! As a family with 2 young adult kids it’s not always easy to find something that everyone is impressed with, but we all loved this. The jazz band was great and really created a lovely atmosphere, crew were so friendly and helpful and of course the amazing views of NYC by night are unbeatable. You can go outside to take pics but it is freezing on the water in December, however the windows slide open so you can open them up for a moment to take a few snaps and then close again to keep warm. The boat itself was lovely, all varnished wood which looked so pretty decorated for Christmas. Shame the covid panels were still up separating the table into 2 halves but it wasn’t busy on our trip so we were able to spread out. Toilets on board if you need them but none at the Pier after 8pm (although we nipped into the bowling alley a couple of piers down to use the restrooms)


So glad we took this cruise. Great way to end a week in the Big . The hosts , boat and jazz band were all amazing. Was so lucky was a clear night also and hence amazing views of NYC and surrounding areas. Highly recommend.


Unfortunately when we arrived to board we were told the time had been changed to later that evening which we could not make work. The ticket office said that an email had been sent a month earlier with the change of departure time but I had not received this. They did offer a full refund and currently awaiting Viator to process this. Disappointed because we missed our chance to see NYC from the river


This. Was. Amazing. We were excited enough to go on a jazz cruise down the Hudson during the Christmas season, but this surpassed all expectations. The jazz band, for starters, was brilliant - three extremely talented musicians providing energetic and melodic Christmas tunes, with great charisma. And the cruise staff were gracious, helpful, good-humoured, and the drinks and holiday cookies a real treat. On top of all this, to cruise so close to the Lady Liberty at night was a mesmerising experience. Highly recommended for a fantastic night excursion!


We loved this cruise! The jazz trio was amazing! The staff was attentive and super friendly. Highly recommend!


This was a wonderful way to see the NYC city lights from a different perspective. Great staff. Good food and drink. The jazz trio and vocalist were terrific. Great American songbook jazz and Christmas tunes. I worried this might be a bit “cheesy”, but it was really lovely and fun.


One of the highlights of our visit to New York! Fabulous staff. Great Christmassy Jazz. The best views ! I am so glad we had this experience. The city lights were spectacular and the close up of the Statue of Liberty was amazing! I can’t rate this trip highly enough. Worth every penny.


Every part of this experience was top notch. The boat is clean and accommodating, the holiday decorations added to the spirit, the staff was delightful, the sights were beautiful and then there was the music …the jazz was SUPERB!! There was a great selection of drinks and the cookies were tasty!! I chose this experience based on the amazing reviews so I wanted to add another so you would not wait to book this delightful holiday experience! Book it with friends for a lovely evening out!!


Great team, super christmassy, lovely evening would highly recommend. We were out at night it was beautiful to see the skyline at night
