"We have been to NYC before and never had experienced it from the water. It was an an amazing sunset trip to the Statue of Liberty and back that we will never forget. The Morimoto sushi was also second to none and paired perfectly with the sake. Fantastic experience."
"My husband and I were beyond satisfied with the entire experience, more that we actually expected. The crew on the sailboat was amazing, great to see an all-girl crew of sailors so friendly and knowledgeable. The sushi was outstanding and the sake the best we have ever had. We will definitely recommend this experience to our friends along with Cloud 9 Living. Thank you for helping me celebrate my husband's Christmas gift, a memory we will cherish forever. Plus, my husband's birthday is next week so it was a bonus experience, Christmas in July. :-)"
"The boat crew was very friendly, fun, and treated the guests like treasured visitors. That part was noticeably awesome. The woman who gave us our boat passes at the dock was a little curt with people for not having everything ready (there was no sign saying exactly what she would need), but she was trying to make sure that people got onto a rushed boat that was about to leave, so it's understandable. Still, perhaps one person managing 15-minute intervals of boats leaving, for guests who may or may not be on that boat, is putting too much strain on one person."
