Review from Tiffany

The brunch cruise was good. Plenty of food and great for friends from out of town and tourist. Only set back was that seating upstairs was limited and there was a 1 mimosa limit per person. There were plenty of beer and wine as an alternative.

The sail was wonderful, eventhough there was not much wind. The deck seemed crowded at times with people moving around, but not too overwhelming. The food was excellent, especially the bagels with lox and cream chesse and the drinks were in...continued

The only item that keeps this cruise from being 5 star is the lack of some commentary about what we were viewing. Other than that - the food was plentiful and very good, and the champagne flowed. Also seems like other drinks - wine and beer -...continued

Everything promised and more! Gorgeous 80-foot sailing vessel. Generous and delicious brunch. Champagne flowing for those who wished--also beer, sodas and juices. Crew very helpful and pleasant. Nice ride through the lower harbor. Highly recommend.

I feel like a lot of people were judging this event harshly. I went with 3 of my girlfriends and we brought a cushy blanket and sat on the deck right next to the "bar"/cooler. the food was a good selection and the trip was really enjoyable. worth...continued

I took my girlfriend on the brunch cruise as the end of her birthday weekend -- great experience. It's always special to be on the water, particularly on a nice day with the great views of NY and the Statue of Liberty. The staff's attitude and...continued

Review from Gilligan

If you are expecting a nice relaxing sail, don't bother. It was 50 people on a boat that comfortably fits 20. Food was subpar. No where to sit or move around. Much better Hudson river options out there, don't waste your money. The crew was good at...continued

It was a little crowded for our liking, but overall a great event. It was a beautiful day for a sail. Views of the city and Statue of Liberty were gorgeous. Crew were very nice. Nice finger foods.

Review from Mark S.

the ride, crew, and food were great. the only thing to make it better would be to make the trip around manhattan, some pleasant music, and lots of sun block.

Beautiful Ship, Great crew and food.
The only fault I found with the trip was laying dead in the water for almost 1/2 hour waiting for the Wind to pick up.

I surprised my hubbie with this sailing event while spending a weekend in NYC. He is an avid sailor and he loved it! We had a good wind and were able to sail all the way to Statin Island. The food and drinks were good, the Shearwater was nice...continued

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time.. They were very accommodating even though we had to reschedule. The only thing that would've been nice is if they ship was wiped down after the rain. It was wet on the boat in many places so seating was...continued

Once on board, the champagne brunch was very nice. The crew was friendly and the boat ride was nice. Although I thought we would have done more sailing around than we did. We only went out to the Statue of Liberty, sat out there for awhile,...continued

The captian and the crew are very nice. The food was good. It is a very nice way to spend 2 hours on a Sunday morning.
