Full description
Bring out the romance and while away an evening under the stars as you slowly sail around New York harbour listening to the cool, smooth sounds of jazz aboard the tall ship, Clipper City. Let the hustle and bustle of the city fade away as you sip on your drink to the music of acclaimed musicians such as jazz guitarist, Joe Cohn, saxophonist, Avram Fefer, as well as a variety of other well-known guest musicians booked by Jazz Standard founder, James Polsky.

The boat trip was a really fantastic experience !!! Unfortunately, I had mixed up the date for the boat trip by one day, which means that the trip was already over. But I was able to use the tickets for the next day without any problems. However, without a jazz band, since it only occurs on Wednesdays (music was played from the band, which was also great). Nevertheless it was an amazing experience !!! The team on board was super nice and the ship itself was wonderful. I can recommend this trip, with or without a jazz band, to everyone !!!!

We went there. No boat.

I contacted the company ahead of time to ask if the cruise was taking place considering the weather forecast was pretty bad. Never got a response. We paid for a taxi ride and showed up on time. We were told the boat was actually under maintenance and won't show up. We didn't get any notice. We haven't received a refund. Terrible.
