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.

Was really very nice and the weather was excellent for a cruise. The only suggestion I have is that they allow Smoking on board and I would suggest they rethink that policy especially as the boat is wood and a lot of people are on it. Otherwise...continued

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

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.

Great trip. There was no tour guide, so it's more of a relaxing, enjoy the view type of trip. There was no music on my sunset sail. Only one staff member spoke to us, he was very nice. The boat is gorgeous, and easy on the body, didn't need...continued

I preferred other sail trips taken with out of town guests. Reason? Sails included historical info etc. This is sail only. We attempted to converse with the captain re: facts about the boat, river etc. He was totally non conversational. Weather...continued

I took the 2:00 and it was beautiful, very peaceful out there but I was glad I brought my fleece top. We got a chance to help hoist the sail which made me feel part of the awesomeness of that ginormous boat. It was mind blowing to just look at...continued

I was disappointed with this experience. I should have heeded the advice of the other reviews. Unless you really love sail boats this is not a good trip to take out of town visitors on. First of all it took almost 45 minutes to get anywhere near...continued

It was a very special experience for my brother and his family as well as me, a local resident. The ship crew were friendly, anxious to please and very interactive.

It was absolutely the most perfect summer day for sailing. The boat was large enough for everyone to find a seat at their preferences, and it moved just at the right pace to fend off the humidity and to showcase the scenic landscape of lower...continued

My mom went on this trip with her husband. they loved it. Very relaxing. They asked a crew member to tell them about the sites, otherwise there is no guide. They have a full bar, and plenty of seating. Roughly about 50 people per trip.
