This was wonderful! We had some great view of the city and plenty of mimosas. I would recommend this to anyone wanted a different experience over and above a ferry.

Waste of Money!
Karin_L, May 2023
This experience was NOT as advertised. Way overpriced for what it actually is. It was far from a the “full buffet” with “homemade muffins, breads and bagels, plus meats, cheese and more” as advertised. All you’ll get it is two small skewers of fruit (4 small pieces each), and two 1x1 inch sandwiches (egg salad and lox/cream cheese). THAT’S IT. It’s laughable that they call this a buffet. Make sure to eat before you go or you’ll be starving by the time it’s over. As for the “unlimited Prosecco and mimosas,” you’ll be lucky to get more than two refills in your tiny plastic cup. Also, there were NO mimosas. Save your money and skip this attraction.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Karin, Very sorry for your disappointment and any misunderstanding. —we haven’t offered a brunch buffet since COVID began. Clearly there is an outdated listing on our partner’s website. We are now offering freely flowing bubbles, lite bites (passed by our crew) in the form of English tea sandwiches and sweets. We will be sure to ask that it be updated. Please contact us if you would like to give us a second chance.
More sailing less spinning.

Crew was great. Boat was Yar. But we barely moved. Except in a clockwise circle. Great view of the statue of maritime law. Lol.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Caroline, thank you for the positivity on our crew and 96 year old classic yacht! —the wind is the one thing we cannot control…. Sorry that we didn’t have a stiff breeze to make it more exciting. Please come back again when there is a bit more wind.

All staff and crew were welcoming. Great time and fitting weather. Tons of food and drink, pleasant trip.
Great experience
Christine_H, Aug 2019
Crew and servers were amazing. Little bit of confusion and some delays checking in which didn’t start things off well. However, once we were onboard the crew more than made up for it. The experience was great and there was plenty of food. There weren’t enough seats for everyone to sit so we sat on the deck, but had an even better experience while sitting on deck than some of the others who sat on benches. Loved it and would happily do this sail again.
Relaxed Way to see the city

It was nearly impossible to find the meeting point -- the directions we were given were totally wrong! Fortunately, the boat waited for us while we walked from the designated point to the actual boat after our taxi dropped us off. It was extremely crowded on the boat they packed the deck with people -- and we didn't sail because it was too windy. Nevertheless, the food was quite good and our group enjoyed it.

Great experience with exceptional photo ops of the Statue of Liberty. Food was plentiful and high quality. Staff friendly and helpful. At first I was concerned about the unconventional seating options, but we sat near the front and got great pictures! So glad we took this tour!
