Hudson River Vacations

Few vacations are able to offer such intimacy as Hudson River cruises. A Hudson River cruise is a truly unique vacation experience. A major advantage of taking a Hudson River cruise is that the river cruise ships are able to go deep into the heart of the U.S. East Coast, where larger cruise ships simply cannot reach. Take part in the one-of-a-kind, intimate atmosphere on board these ships, as you visit the river towns and locations that would be impossible to enjoy as much any other way. Plus, the cruise lines that offer river cruises have fabulous, regionally-inspired cuisine, matched perfectly by an attentive and well-trained staff.

There are many destinations to which a Hudson River cruise can take you. You can experience places like New York City, the Catskills, West Point, and Sleepy Hollow as you’ve never dreamed you could! The Hudson River is one of the main waterways of North America, making it easier than ever to take in the exciting culture and landscape of the U.S. East Coast. As you navigate to Hudson’s beautiful and historic river banks, you’ll discover historic architecture, famous landmarks, and picturesque beauty from all angles. A Hudson River cruise is an incredible way to experience all that upstate New York has to offer.

Highlighted Hudson River Cruise Attractions

The following are just a few of the many things to do while sailing the Hudson River:

New York, NY

Hudson River cruises typically depart from New York City as that is where the Hudson River region begins. New York City is one of the most famous cities in America, known as the “city that doesn’t sleep.” Before you board your ship, you can explore this legendary metropolis and take in its exciting energy. Some popular points of interest in New York City include Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Hyde Park

This historic town is located in upstate New York and is best known as the birthplace of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In addition to this area’s natural beauty (especially in the fall when the foliage turns colors), you can enjoy a variety of interesting things to do. The Walkway Over the Hudson, a former railroad turned into the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge, is located here, as is the historic home of FDR, which includes a museum and a library.

West Point

West Point is the United State’s famous Military Academy that has stood since the 1800s. You’ll be able to walk the same grounds that many legendary military leaders once attended, such as George Custer, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee. Visits to West Point usually include tours of the West Point Museum, Cadet Chapel, and Trophy Point. You will also be able to joy even more breathtaking vies of the Hudson River Valley from campus!

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Specialty Cruise Lines

These cruise lines offer a truly unique vacation experience, with a wide range of possible amenities and itineraries. Some are expedition cruise lines, others have sailing yachts or are coastal ships.

On these types of cruise lines, there's usually a focus on a specific destination or theme. Itineraries are usually very destination intensive, aided by the fact that they're able to reach many ports of call that larger ships can't.

Expedition cruise lines are a great fit for adventure-seeking travelers, featuring exciting destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and the Norwegian coast. During the cruise, there will usually be plenty of interesting lectures given by experts on the destination being visited. Often, shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise. In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).

Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience. Accommodations and cuisine on these intimate vessels can be anywhere from good to fantastic, depending on the cruise line. Destinations offered by these cruise lines may include the Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica.
