It was definitely a relaxing ride. At first it seemed a little slow until the sails were hoisted, but all in all I enjoyed it.

It was freezing cold. I wish I had chosen a different day.

It was relaxing and good views of the bottom of Manhattan and Statue of Liberty. The twilight cruise is nice cause you see the views in daylight, then at sunset, and then at nighttime too. Lots of good photos ops! The bathroom was actually pretty...continued

It was very pleasant. Perfect weather, great sunset behind the statue. They rose sails and let you help do so if you wanted. Nice bar aboard and drinks were priced as expected ($7 wine or Brooklyn Lager). I kinda wish they hand actually used...continued

It's quite a different experience to sail in this harbor on a sailboat vs a ferry boat. It was so peaceful. We got to help raise the sails if we wanted...hard work! Note this is not a tour boat, so there is no commentary on what islands or bridges...continued

Loved the cruise but will never buy tickets through Goldstar again, because I had to pay TWICE.

Maybe I picked a wrong day, but the experience was nothing like described in the summary. First of all, the ship goes to the Statue of Liberty, around Governor's Island and back. It was a beautiful day. Nice and warm, cool breeze, cloudless sky....continued

My boarding was for 430pm on a Sunday and it was beautiful weather. The line to board was quite long (I showed up at 415 to board and already a wait) but once on the boat, was easy to find a seat. I didnt take advantage of the bar to order a...continued

My friends and I went on the sunset cruise to start off a bachelorette party. We liked the cruise and the staff so much, we purchased tickets for the night cruise immediately after and spent the majority of our party on the boat!

My husband and I had a great time aboard the Clipper City sailboat. We were on the boat on Friday, 10/4 and the weather was perfect - 80s and sunny. The views aboard the sailboat were wonderful, seeing all of downtown Manhattan, getting up close...continued

My two daughters, ages 11 and 14, along with a friend who's a native New Yorker, and I took this cruise and loved it. Plenty of room, places for shade, and breathtaking scenery...what more could you want? I took a bottle of water but bought...continued
