What a way to see the famous skyline at night ! Crew and musicians were brilliant and very attentive. Only downside was they had cancelled our time (due to not enough passengers I presume) and we hadn’t been informed , the lady did say she’d tried calling and mailed but we never received anything. They compensated us with a drinks package. We stopped right outside the Statue of Liberty and had great photo opportunities and didn’t feel rushed. Highly recommended and was certainly a highlight on our trip.

This was a highlight of our trip to NYC. The atmosphere was wonderful, and the band was fantastic! Loved every single thing about this. The sights, the decorations, the crew, the music, the spiked cocoa... it really was like a holiday dream. Highly recommended!

It was a wonderful experience, great music, wonderful staff and unforgettable sights to see of the Manhattan skyline

A great experience with a friendly crew and carolers. We would go again!

What a fun ride! Beautiful sites, great fun caroling!
