Manhattan by Sail has teamed with Dances of Vice, a New York City nightlife sensation specializing in themed entertainment, for a night of Burlesque entertainment on board the Clipper City. Let your inhibitions flow as freely as the wind in your hair as this two-hour cruise sails around the picturesque New York Harbor.

As you sail past the beautiful Manhattan skyline at night and by such iconic landmarks as the State of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge, a fascinating burlesque and variety show unfolds on the ship. Only for adults 21 years of age or older, guests can join in on the fun by dressing in their best 1960s/70s glamour and playing along with the entertainers. A full bar is open, and bar service is also available throughout the 158-foot schooner.

While the burlesque fun is happening, don’t forget to take in the sensational views of the skyline at night on board the Clipper City. Modeled after a pre-Civil War era schooner with plans bought from the Smithsonian, Clipper City was originally built to transfer lumber but was remodeled to accommodate up to 134 passengers. Spacious decks, ample seating and the aforementioned full bar complete the transformation, making for a comfortable sailing experience for everyone on board.
