Keep Calm and Sail On Classic Harbor Line First Class NYC Sightseeing Cruise

Got Stress? Life can sometimes get the best of us, taking away the inner peace and harmony that we all need for balance. Raising a teen, a tween and a toddler certainly comes with its challenges. Recently, I decided that we should just put everything aside for the day and spend the day reconnecting with one another and reconnecting with nature. Aside from the teen and toddler taking off without a phone along Manhattan's Chelsea Pier for half an hour, we had a wonderful day enjoying smiles, sunshine and smooth sailing.

Thank you to Classic Harbor Line for complimentary boarding passes as a US Family Guide Moms Connect Ambassador.

We arrived at the pier long before the Yacht Manhattan for our Statue and Skyline Sightseeing Cruise, that was our plan. We were not going to rush or fall behind schedule while performing 1,001 random tasks. Enjoying quality time and a rocking carousel ride along the Chelsea Pier waterfront park was nothing but refreshing. We enjoyed a small snack, which we prepared the night before, picnic-style along the Hudson River before preparing to board the Yacht Manhattan.

The Yacht Manhattan is a pristine commuter yacht with a vintage 1920s style that cruises with less passengers than typical sightseeing tour boats. Her 1.5 hour Statue and Skyline Sightseeing Cruise departs in the late afternoon viewing the main waterfront sites of the New York Harbor.

The 1 1/2 hour Classic Harbor Line Statue and Skyline Sightseeing Cruise includes a narrated tour with scenic views of-
   Battery Park
   South Street Seaport 
   The Financial District
   Governor's Island

   The Statue of Liberty 
   Ellis Island 
   New York City Skyline
   The Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges

   The Hudson and East Rivers 
   New Jersey Waterfront Areas

The Yacht Manhattan is just the right size for an intimate, breathtaking cruise around New York City. Seated along the panoramic observatory windows on the rear deck, we comfortably lounged on the cushioned seating encircling low, stationary coffee tables. The enclosed solarium is climate-controlled with heating and air-conditioning as necessary. 

In our quest for restoration, we embarked on a relaxing journey away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Classic Harbor Line Statue and Skyline Sightseeing Cruise was a well-deserved staycation for our family and maybe even a future date night destination. Sometimes, the need to indulge and treat yourself well preceeds the need to accomplish everything. Yeah, that was special. Now, back to business.
