    “We had a wonderful time. Thank you.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi there Gwen,  With a wonderful review that followed! Thank you so much for letting us know!  Best, Sophia
    “1st: Get there early. Lines form quick, so some of the best looking/picture taking spots get taken. Other than that the crew is awesome. They answer questions, chat and because they are having a good time you are. Lastly you get some great shots of the city. Between the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn, and the Manhattan skyline was a fantastic date night.”
    “We had a wonderful experience. The weather was delightful, the views were breathtaking, and the crew was totally professional. We will certainly re-book another cruise next summer! It was such a great date night.”
    “We sat for 40 minutes (this is not an approximation or exaggeration -- I clocked it) off the shore not moving, with no explanation as why we were there, and then as soon as it was almost at the 2 hour mark we went back and docked. It was listed as a 2 hour tour. And yes, we were on the water/boat for 2 hours -- but otherwise very misleading and frustrating. Book with another tour operator. This was terrible. (Terrible for a paid tour; we were still on the water looking back at NY so the experience itself still had some merit.)”
    “It is helpful to see the availability before purchasing an experience. The bartender on the boat was a little rude and not friendly.”
    “I bought this for my husband's 32 birthday and we both loved the experience. We live here in the city but never get to get out on the water and see the city from the view this boat was able to provide. Though we have both seen the Statue of Liberty, we were in awe of the beauty with the sun setting as its backdrop. We also thought the boat was not to crowded which was nice to be able to sit some and stand/walk around. Towards the end of the ride it got chilly and the boat staff handed out blankets. This was greatly appreciated since it was late June and no one was expecting it to be as cool as it was. Overall the experience was great and highly recommended. ”
    “Wonderful !!!”
    “This is not a narrated tour so if you want to learn about the sites you are seeing this is not the tour for you. For a great, relaxing evening and picturesque views at sunset and dusk, this is a fabulous trip. Limited seating so come early to secure a spot if you are unable to stand for 2 hours.”
    “It was a picture perfect day and we enjoyed our sail very much!”
    “We truly enjoyed our 2 hour sail on the Clipper City Tall Ship from 7-9pm. The evening started out with a huge thunder storm while we were waiting to board the vessel, and it seemed like the sail would be called off.But because of the expert experience and good judgement of Captain Robert Griffith, we all waited out the storm on the dock, the skies soon cleared, and off we sailed to enjoy a beautiful evening aboard this magnificent vessel. Capt. Griffith and the crew were outstanding and made everyone on board feel relaxed and comfortable. We had a great time, and I have recommended the evening sail to many of our family and friends. Thank you for a most enjoyable experience! Jim & Carol Westervelt”
