This was an amazing experience. Will be a bit cold outside while waiting, as you start boarding 5 min before departure. Still recommend getting there 15 minutes early if you plan on parking and checking in for your tickets. Luckily there is a facility right next door to get away from the wind. Once they started calling groups, we were all on board within 5-10 minutes. The captain explains the rules and then the real fun begins. There is a live band, which was a nice treat. Fresh hot chocolate… spiked option for the adults, with cookies that were so good. Nice your around the bridges and Statue of Liberty. You can move freely throughout the boat, with clean bathrooms for those who have to go. Outside was great… offering benches and lots of room to move around. The staff took good care of us and explained as much as they knew when we had questions. Would highly recommend, as this will not be our last time doing this.

Came here it’s a work group and we all loved it! We were pleasantly surprised we had a table reserved for our group of 9, and the musicians were fabulous. We went on a very rainy day but it was a smooth ride for the most part. Happy to have also discovered very clean bathrooms just down a few steps on the cruise. Alcoholic drinks were available for purchase and they passed out chocolates and rice krispie treats.

The Holiday Yacht cruise was a perfect way to spend part of our family NYC visit. Weather was perfect, and the holiday motif was very festive. Was surprised at the huge platter of cookies etc we received for our table of 6. There was something for everyone. My family thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, especially how close they brought us to the Statue of Liberty. We got some amazing pictures. I would recommend this cruise to all!
