General FAQs about all our excursions.


  • Holiday Jazz Cruise
    My husband and I treated ourselves to an evening cruise on the Manhattan. As always on the Classic Harbor cruises, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Viewing Manhattan’s city lights is just beautiful and what could be better than listening to a jazz ensemble while doing so! The staff was friendly and informative as were the guests. This was our first time on the Manhattan II, but we have been on the Adirondack a number of times and look forward to a trip on the America next summer.

  • Amazing holiday experience!
    I got an email about the holiday jazz cruise when my parents were visiting from out of town. I’m so happy we decided on this impromptu activity! This was by far their favorite thing we did in NYC while they were here. The crew couldn’t have been more friendly and it was the perfect way to show them the sites and get into the holiday spirit all at the same time. The jazz band was awesome and they served champagne and hot chocolate on board. I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I could!

  • Holiday Jazz?! SO Much Fun!
    This was the first activity that our group had planned for our vacation in NYC. What a wonderful surprise! The Holiday Jazz Cruise was perfect! From the wonderful music and the Christmas carol sing a long to seeing the city skyline and the Statue of Liberty at night, we couldn’t have enjoyed it more!

  • Nothing short of wonderful
    My mother and I take a “girl trip” to NYC every year. I discovered this excursion via TripAdvisor and signed up enthusiastically once I saw the pictures and read the reviews. I can tell you it lives up to expectations. The Manhattan II just shines. It is clean, beautifully decorated, a smooth sail. The team managing the trip are engaging and friendly. We took the Holiday Jazz Cruise and would do it all over again. The musicians were talented and played fantastic music throughout the entire sailing with just one brief break. We purchased the cheese plate, which was better quality than anticipated and very enjoyable as we sipped our wine. I highly recommend this.

  • Christmas Jazz and a nice boat ride
    As my husband and I LOVE Christmas, this was a nice way to get into the holiday spirit. The Holiday Jazz cruise was great, we got to drink hot cocoa, were treated to Christmas cookies, saw Manhattan and Brooklyn from the harbor at night and listened to fun Christmas jazz music. Would definitely do this again if we come back for Christmas in New York.

  • Annual Holiday Fun
    This was our 2nd yr taking the Holiday Jazz Cruise. There were 16 of us and we were a mix of ages from 25-80. Everyone equally enjoyed it. The boat is beautiful with nice bathrooms. The band was great and the staff was friendly and the drinks were good. We all loved the 12 Days of Christmas sing along. The views of NYC were spectacular and we all got amazing pics in front of Lady Liberty. We would highly recommend! Can’t wait til next yr!

  • Great Time cruising with Live Jazz
    The Holiday Jazz cruise was excellent in every way: the boat, the crew and their attitude, the music, the scenery – even at night!

  • Love the Holiday Jazz Cruise
    We have done this cruise twice and it was just as much fun the second time as the first. The boat is beautiful inside, seating is comfortable, and seeing the City from the water is spectacular. Having live jazz music on board is the icing on the cake. Wonderful experience and a great photo op!
