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 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 an absolute fantastic way to spend a romantic evening. My husband and I visited New York for a week and we both think this was a wonderful highlight of the week. You should take this cruise if you want to spend a relaxing enjoyable night...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

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.

Very relaxing cruise on a beautiful evening. Would not have enjoyed it in the rain though (sails rain or shine). Great crew, nice bar. Seating a little sparse as quite a few had to sit on the floor. Would highly recommend.

When I read about GoldStar deals for NY events, I decided to try them out by booking this sunset sail on May 7, 2011 as a wrap up pre-mother’s day event for my out of town guests. We arrived promptly at 6:45 p.m. and informed the ticket counter...continued

Beautiful day, friendly crew. Someone or someones were smoking on board which bothered me during a good part of the trip.
I wish the ship traveled more(perhaps to west side or closer to Verrazano) rather than be stationary around the Statue of...continued

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 water was really pleasant, but I would have liked a little "tour guide"...continued
