Crew is friendly but quiet. Why don't they tell something about what can be seen along the coast? Fun facts about the boat? Could be more entertaining. Worth the goldstar price, but not more.

Everything was absolutely perfect! The weather was awesome, the vessel incredible and the crew was professional, friendly and well skilled. Thanks to Goldstar and Manhattan By Sail for a first rate experience.
