NYC Holiday Programming

New York, NY (October 20, 2017) Classic Harbor Line (CHL) to kick off seasonal NYC holiday cruises beginning Friday, November 17 through December 31. Tickets are available to book now. CHL is located at Pier 62 of the Chelsea Piers Complex where all tours depart.   

NYC is monumental during the holiday season with department store window displays, ice skating at Rockefeller Center and outdoor holiday markets. One of the top ten ways to see the city in November and December is on a Classic Harbor Line holiday cruise in New York Harbor.

The first Holiday Wine Tasting Cruise will be offered on November 17. Guests enjoy a selection of five wines paired with artisan cheese, chocolate or chutney and presented by wine expert Wendy Crispell. As 1920s style commuter Yacht Manhattan cruises along the Hudson River for an up-close view of the Statue of Liberty and other iconic sights along Manhattan’s waterfront, Crispell teaches about how to build the perfect holiday spread fit for any holiday gathering.

Beginning on November 18, CHL offers a four-course Holiday Brunch Cruise on the weekends through January 1. This is a great cruise to kick off the weekend with friends visiting from out of town, or before hitting the streets for some holiday shopping. Enjoy a gluten-free waffle with all the toppings, vegetarian quiche, or kale salad – to name a few freshly made buffet items offered on this 2.75-hour leisurely cruise circumnavigating Manhattan.

Back for a third season, the Cocoa & Carols Holiday Cruise is a favorite among New Yorkers and visitors alike. This cruise is a great fit for families and is sure to get everyone into the holiday spirit. During the 1.75-hour cruise, guests are able to sit back and relax from within the glassed-in, heated observation cabin on Yacht Manhattan or Manhattan II, while the host and live jazz band perform. Sing-a-long or hum to the toons and enjoy a complimentary spiked hot cocoa and homemade sweet treats.   

CHL’s Holiday Jazz Cruise is another popular tour not to be missed during the holiday season. Step into a holiday snow globe aboard either the Yacht Manhattan or Yacht Manhattan II decked out in twinkling holiday garland and poinsettias and enjoy a spiked hot cocoa or champagne on the house. This cruise is perfect for a date night or gathering with friends and family. Sit back and enjoy the music as The Boat Band perform all the holidays classics.   

For sightseers visiting the city, a cruise around New York’s waterways on one of CHL’s classic yachts will be regarded as a trip highlight. Every CHL Holiday Cruise passes by the Statue of Liberty, the financial district and One World Trade, Ellis Island and under the Brooklyn Bridge. Gift Cards are available for purchase online to give a unique and memorable gift. 

So step aboard and enjoy some NYC Holiday Programming with Classic Harbor Line.
