I liked it but there was no commentary done by the staff and most of the work was done by the motor and not the sails. So I feel I was mislead. However, it was lovely way to start a Sunday on a beautiful day.

Our evening on the 7:00pm Clipper City sailing began pleasantly with the young woman in the ticket booth who accepted our Goldstar vouchers and issued our boarding passes with grace and humor. Boarding was a very simple and speedy process and we...continued

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.

Misrepresentation of where the cruise travels. Only went to the statue of liberty and back for two hours.

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 you're looking for hoopla and commentary, this isn't for you. But if you just...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.

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.

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 ship, so it doesn't matter. Plenty of photo ops.
Friendly, helpful crew.Bar...continued
