American Cruise Lines has introduced a new itinerary for 2025, the eight-day Hudson River Summer Classic.

Departing roundtrip from New York City, this itinerary explores the Hudson River Valley, with stops in Catskill, Albany, Kingston, Hyde Park, West Point, and Sleepy Hollow. Guests will also enjoy shore excursions in New York City.

Local guides will take guests to notable sites such as the West Point Military Academy, FDR’s Presidential Library & Museum in Hyde Park, the Vanderbilt Mansion, and Lyndhurst. In New York City, guided tours include a special experience at the World Trade Center, and there's an opportunity to explore Sleepy Hollow, famously depicted in Washington Irving’s "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

American Cruise Lines has already completed the initial sailings of the Hudson River Summer Classic itinerary, with the last 2024 cruise concluding on Tuesday, June 25. For 2025, the company has significantly increased the number of departures, offering cruises in June, July, August, and extending into late September and October.
