I’ve done several of the boat tours myself, because for me, there’s hardly a better combination of sailing, jazz and New York City. Maybe you feel the same way I do: whenever I hear jazz, I feel like I’m in New York City – just wonderful!
My tip: Especially the Jazz Cruises at Christmas are very popular and the tickets are booked up quickly. Therefore, you should decide quickly if there are still available tickets.

This Holiday Jazz Cruise aboard a 1920’s style luxury yacht is one of my absolute favorite tours in New York. The ship has a wonderful charm and cannot be compared to the big sightseeing ships.

Why not spending time on a Christmas Holiday Cruise during Christmas in New York? Both locals and NYC visitors love the amazing Christmas Cruises New York City has to offer.
My favorite holiday cruise is the New York City Cocoa and Carols Holiday Cruise. The Jazz Band on board is fun and so talented which makes the New York City Cocoa and Carols Holiday Cruise even more entertaining. Relax in the heated main observation cabin, join in the caroling, and admire the city through the glassed-in observatory on the 1920s style yacht.

Forget trying to snag a hard-to-get reservation at New York’s hottest restaurants du jour.

Bateaux New York Luxury Brunch CruiseCruise in ChelseaOur HighlightAdd to myNY added
The boat tours with Bateaux New York are super-popular, especially the Dinner Cruise (which is also one of our favorites). In addition, there’s a Brunch Cruise that takes you from the Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty in two hours. Along the way, you’ll see many of New York’s famous landmarks; I always find the skyline impressive and beautiful. And because the Bateaux New York is made of a lot of glass, the view from everywhere is really good.
If you are looking for an elegant and luxurious brunch cruise, there is no way around the Bateaux Brunch Cruise: you can expect a brunch menu with a huge selection, there is live music, service on board and all non-alcoholic drinks are included in the price.
