Although we don’t like to skip any holidays (we truly love them all), we also understand the need to plan before the hustle and bustle of the season is in full swing. Our NYC holiday cruises are now available to book! Surprise your special someone for date night, or bring your friends and family visiting from out of town and start celebrating the holidays! Our tours below will make your day feel merry and bright.
Back by popular demand, the Cocoa & Carols Cruise is the perfect way to kick off the season. Classic Harbor Line’s courteous crew will welcome you into the beautifully decorated and heated main cabin of Yacht Manhattan II with large observation windows. As you settle into a seat with a couple of pillows, you’ll enjoy the cozy atmosphere, a hot beverage, sweet treats, and the cheerful sound of a caroler serenading with a Jazz Band into the night under the glow of the city’s lights.
The Holiday Jazz Cruise is a favorite year after year and one not to be missed. Bring a date or a few friends, and sit back with a glass of wine or a steaming beverage as The Sound Waves play all the holiday classics. We promise you’ll leave whistling some tunes with a joyful heart.
For all you foodies, or for anyone into NYC brunching, the Around Manhattan Holiday Brunch Cruise is the ideal combination of our favorite brunch cuisine, sightseeing, and relaxation. It’s the perfect start to a shopping day in Manhattan! Mimosas and mistletoe included.
The Champagne and City Lights Cruise is one of our most romantic and regularly offered trips year-round, which is an added bonus to our holiday cruises. We especially enjoy it during the holiday season when the main cabin is decked-out with holly, garland and mistletoe, and the festive holiday lights along Manhattan’s shoreline are extra bright. Add this to your holiday to-do list and invite a few friends or your closest co-workers for a mini holiday party.
If you’re a New Yorker with friends and family visiting this holiday season, we highly recommend one of these trips. There’s no doubt your visitors will love the unobstructed views of Manhattan’s skyline and the Statue of Liberty. As you cruise around New York Harbor on a beautiful 1920s inspired yacht, you’ll remember why you love the holidays and New York.
For sightseers visiting the city or locals alike, a cruise around New York’s waterways on one of our classic yachts is destined to be the highlight of your day. Bring your Smartphone and snap a selfie with your friends and family. We’ll cruise by Manhattan’s Financial District, the One World Trade building, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and so much more.
For all the company party planners out there, here’s a Hint: Our boats are available to charter for private holiday parties.
A Note about the Author:
Meg Yeiter: Meg grew up and went to college in Michigan. After graduation, she did what any 21-year-old with a degree and no job would do – move to a mountain town to spend all day skiing fresh powder and afternoons clinking glasses at chic après ski lodges. Just kidding, she moved to Park City, Utah, where she got her first journalism job as a reporter at the local newspaper and borrowed her friends ski’s to hit the slopes a few times a month. Meg has always had a passion for traveling and the outdoors. She moved to New York City in early 2015. During her first year here, Meg found herself consistently running to Classic Harbor Line to catch an evening sunset sail. She officially joined the Classic Harbor Line team in April 2016 and now no longer needs to run anywhere. In her free time, Meg enjoys exploring New England, repurposing furniture, and sailing of course.
