The positives: The crew is great, friendly and fun. They had music and open bar.

The negative: It's not really a sailing trip. They still use the engine during the trip to keep the drinks cool...... ?!

The staff was courteous and friendly; there was no annoying contantnrration' the boat was great, the route was great, and the weather turned just as we got on the boat. Great time!

There was a birthday party aboard that delayed departure and prevented all the sales from being raised. Weather was wonderful, view of Statue of Liberty equally wonderful, Captain was pleasant and that made the cruise a delight.

There were a few too many people: as it was rainy there was not enough places for people to sit. Plus it too about 25 minutes to dock - I think we had unusually strong... continued

This was an absolute great sail!!! The crew was accomodating and friendly. And the view! The view of the Lady (the Statue of Liberty) was fabulous! I would recommend taking the 90 minutes to experience this Sailing Cruise.

This was a nice cruise - quiet - no loud screeching music. Enjoyed just sailing the harbor, taking in the sights on a beautiful summer night. Dress warmly for chilly... continued

Very pleasant ride. Needed a sweater which i did not bring. The boat ride was very smooth sailing and the boat was a large and comfortable ride with its wood floor and wide boat.

Even though it rained part of the time,we had a very good time-the views were beautiful,the cruise was peaceful and the crew was friendly. The drinks didn't hurt either.

For the discounted price, I think this was a really nice way to spend 90 minutes, but I would have felt it was over-priced at the regular price. Just being out on the... continued

Great Ride on the water. Got to see the Statue of Liberty pretty up close and a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. Great photo ops and overall a nice day when I went. Would recommend taking the 7pm sailing in order to see the amazing sunset.
