Just Perfect
, Jan 2020
The talent of the musicians was amazing!!! I loved how they got the crowd involved in singing!!! My favorite part was how close the captain got us to the Statue of Liberty. He gave us plenty of time to admire her beauty and get pictures. The yacht was also very gorgeous!! This was the perfect to do to get us in the Christmas spirt when we arrived in NYC. I would most defiantly do this again and recommend for all ages.

Had such a fantastic time on the Cocoa and Carols cruise. Would definitely do it again but this time in the evening to see all the lights. Very festive.
Perfect even in the rain

What a lovely way to spend 90 minutes of your trip to NYC. The boat was a lovely surprise, beautiful varnished deck, glass canopy with edge to edge view of the skyline. Great band and lead singer and a good old christmas sing along. Good bunch of guests who really joined in. Terrific start to the night, then into the city for drinks!!
Great festive cruise

Fun but Disappointed
, Dec 2019
We were on the water for approx. 90 minutes. The musicians sang a few Carol's then only 3 or 4 songs with audience participation. After that they took a 30 minute was a bit disappointing. I have done this cruise before and it was a lot of fun

The cruise was great and very festive! My family and I loved loved loved the sing along...the cookies that were advertised were disappointing as they looked more fall like versus holiday as advertised, so a quick fix that could make a BIG difference!
