Love these evening dance cruises. Music, people and dancing. Had so much fun before you know it your back at the dock. Didn't want the music to end

View was gorgeous. Food available could be improved. Soveniers selection could also be better. Crew was friendly and helpful . Clean bathrooms too, that’s always a plus.

Sorry...just saw this now! Well worth the trip up the Hudson to visit Kingston as British troops did in 1776 when they burned the city to the ground! First capital of NY State with many colonial houses (scorched but... More

This particular cruise is in Kingston NY, about an hour from Manhattan. Not sure how you would get up there, but you may be able to find one closer out of Manhattan. Enjoy your trip
