The cruise was perfect for a hot summer day. Remember, this is a cruise past the statue of liberty - it's not a guided tour with the "host" pointing everything out. It's more of a relaxed atmosphere and just take it all in.

Very relaxing sunset cruise. We both got a little wet, but that was fine. Be aware, if the weather is severe they will cancel.

wonderful way to end a day of walking around the city. plenty of space to sit, no annoying commentary from the guide, just beautiful vistas, sunset and wind playing with the sail.

Although this ship leaves from New York's most touristy venue (well maybe second most touristy, next to Times Square!) once you're on the boat, it's another world. If... continued

The staff was great, the weather was great. Depending on the time of day, you may need a jacket. Drinks were reasonable. Just had an overall good time.

Beautiful day sailing the harbor. Great up-close view of the Statue of Liberty. Crew friendly. Passengers sit on the deck - no comfortable seating, if that's an issue for you.

Relaxing, scenic, fun. Laid back atmosphere. Seating is catch-as-catch-can around the decks, no formal benches or seats. But you spend a lot of time moving around the... continued

The weather cooperated to make this a wonderful way to end the work week and start the holiday.

The schooner sailed smoothly through the water and had a very calming effect. I was sorry it had to end.

This is a nice way to spend an hour and a half. The boat goes by the Statue of Liberty but not many other landmarks. There is a full bar and specialty drinks offered. It was just an enjoyable, relaxing ride.

This ship was very nice.The staff was very nice . It really would have been nice to have a commentator letting guest know what they were looking at. Maybe a little music would have been nice too.

This was a wonderful experience. The crew was friendly and answered questions about the ship and sailing procedures. Our trip was somewhat marred by rain but the views around the harbor were grand nevertheless.

Took the 2 hour sunset cruise. Staff was excellent. A few people were dancing to the recorded music on one of the decks, which was cute. Watching the sails get hoisted is amazing. Do it !!
