Went on Memorial Day - was a bit crowded, but everyone was very agreeable. A very relaxing sail up around Governor's island, over to the Statue of Liberty and back.

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

While it was a very clear day, for some reason I expected more...don't know why, but I did. The ride was smooth, but there was nothing exceptional. I expected to hear more about the boat, things we were passing, some kind of "general," info at...continued

Cruise was well done. People are not kidding when they say no matter how hot it is, you should bring a sweater or jacket. It was almost 90 and mid sail we hit a cold pocket of sea air and I was freezing!

Also interesting, while others mention...continued

It was great fun, and so cheap it's a steal. Although our boat was full of out-of-towners, we thoroughly enjoyed the ride as much as they did.

Very Nice! The views are spectacular. The crew was friendly. We brought a soft cooler filled with refreshments which worked out great on a sunny 86 degree day. The only thing that was sorely missed was some narration. Narration would have...continued

A lovely ship on a beautiful day, all at a reasonable price. A full cruise but even full, plenty of room for everyone and not overly crowded. Great full bar. Crew was delightful and scenery was spectacular.

I liked it but there was no commentary done by the staff and most of the work was done by the motor and not the sails. So I feel I was mislead. However, it was lovely way to start a Sunday on a beautiful day.

It was a lot of time just drifting and we never went full sail. I was pretty disappointed.

Although this ship leaves from New York's most touristy venue (well maybe second most touristy, next to Times Square!) once you're on the boat, it's another world. If you're looking for hoopla and commentary, this isn't for you. But if you just...continued

Boat was a good size. Crew was friendly and helped to make the trip enjoyable. Would have liked it to be a little longer. Complimentary drink would have been nice.

Misrepresentation of where the cruise travels. Only went to the statue of liberty and back for two hours.
