Review from Tricia

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.

Review from Jersey Gal1

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.

Review from Michael Olesen

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

Review from Leslie

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.

Our evening on the 7:00pm Clipper City sailing began pleasantly with the young woman in the ticket booth who accepted our Goldstar vouchers and issued our boarding passes with grace and humor. Boarding was a very simple and speedy process and we...continued

Review from RobofNYC

The cruise was perfect for a hot summer day. Remember, this is a cruise past the statue of liberty - it's not a guided tour with the "host" pointing everything out. It's more of a relaxed atmosphere and just take it all in.

Very relaxing sunset cruise. We both got a little wet, but that was fine. Be aware, if the weather is severe they will cancel.

Review from Ellen Terry

Relaxing, scenic, fun. Laid back atmosphere. Seating is catch-as-catch-can around the decks, no formal benches or seats. But you spend a lot of time moving around the ship, so it doesn't matter. Plenty of photo ops.
Friendly, helpful crew.Bar...continued

The staff was great, the weather was great. Depending on the time of day, you may need a jacket. Drinks were reasonable. Just had an overall good time.
