The Music was excellent....
, Dec 2021
The Music was excellent. The sights were amazing. The boat was very clean and the service was very good.
Would have been good without the unfortunate event
, Dec 2021
This would have been a lovely trip but we paid for cocoa and carols but due to someone vomiting all over the bar we were not able to have any drinks for our trip as advertised. Obviously not the companies fault but not ideal and no compensation for it. The views were amazing and the boat was lovely with all the decorations. The small band started well but there werent many carols or christmas songs and some were repeated so lacking in the atmosphere. The team did seem apologetic and there wasnt much to be done but the smell of throw up was not a favourable end to a great trip to new york
The crew/band works hard to make it a special occasion.

Perfect cruise to bring on the Christmas Spirit

Saw this tour advertised on TikTok and decided to give it a try. Did not disappoint. It was everything I had hoped for and more. This is actually the second reservation through Viator this year and both were amazing. If you’re doing a quick trip to New York and you love Christmas, this is a must!
Wonderful experience!

The band was awesome, singer has such a beautiful voice and they were fun to watch. Seeing the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline was amazing.
Fun Flirty Festive
, Dec 2021
We loved it! We took the evening cruise, highly recommend, the city skyline and Statue of Liberty were GORGEOUS at night. The band was superb, keeping everything festive and entertaining. Dress snuggly, it’s chilly out on the deck of the boat, but you have to step Out to get great pics! Get the spiked hot chocolate. **Would be a great spot to propose.

What a great way to celebrate the Christmas season! We had a blast. The views were amazing and the staff was super friendly and attentive. So glad we did this cruise!
Put this at the top of your list!
, Dec 2021
This is my absolute favorite thing to do for the holidays in NYC. It’s so festive and the views are incredible, especially when cruising past the Statue of Liberty.
Just Perfect
, Jan 2020
The talent of the musicians was amazing!!! I loved how they got the crowd involved in singing!!! My favorite part was how close the captain got us to the Statue of Liberty. He gave us plenty of time to admire her beauty and get pictures. The yacht was also very gorgeous!! This was the perfect to do to get us in the Christmas spirt when we arrived in NYC. I would most defiantly do this again and recommend for all ages.
, Dec 2019
Had such a fantastic time on the Cocoa and Carols cruise. Would definitely do it again but this time in the evening to see all the lights. Very festive.
