I wish I could tell you that I had a great experience with Clipper City, but they canceled the trip on us at the last minute because they didn't have enough passengers.

Goldstar was great and gave me a refund before I could even ask for it,...continued

It was perfect. The ship is beautiful and the crew are friendly and informative. It was a real treat all around. One suggestion would be to have it in the information somewhere that tips are recommended for the crew. I would have made sure to...continued

Lovely idea -- a sunset sail, even though the sun sneaked down without a blaze this evening, to see the lights of lower Manhattan (and the new Liberty Tower) was satisfying. The boat was big enough that we could distance ourselves from the...continued

My wife and I had a wonderful time sailing around New York Harbor on Monday afternoon. The crew on the boat couldn't have been more helpful.

Thc Clipper is a nice looking boat. The crew was cordial and the boat left pretty much on time. Was a really hot day and no place for shade.

The day was beautiful, the ship very nice, and put it all together, it was a wonderful way to spend 90 minutes cruising lower Manhattan. Would definitely do this again.

The day was lovely, the ride smooth and enjoyable. The traffic in getting to the pier was horrendous. The ship waited for us and we were very grateful. You should tell people to plan for a two hour window to get to the site.
this was a group...continued

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 sail around the city was an absolutely wonderful time! I highly recommend this event for everybody that wants to just relax and take in some must needed fresh air! The boat sails to the Lady and back. For those that help pull the sail a...continued

The ship was beautiful, the crew was very friendly, and they had a reasonably priced full bar. There was no guide or explanation of the sights we passed, but I honestly prefered it that way, since i was there to enjoy the cruise and the sights...continued

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 currents because of the rain. Otherwise everything was perfect, the staff very...continued

This is a very nice and relaxing scenic NY opportunity. It is a slow boat that takes you from South Street Seaport to the area around the Statue of Liberty. It is definitely a nice trip to do during sunset as it is a very pretty scenic view. ...continued

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 evenings. Only drinks on board - no food - so plan ahead for that. The boat was...continued

Very different experience than the usual Manhattan cruises. Captain and crew very friendly. Everyone on board helped hoist the sales. No music - no food - just a bar, which was fine with us. If you're a tourist looking for someone to point out...continued
