"Great crew. Really worked hard to be sure we were safe and had an enjoyable time. The woman who poured the wines took her time with each small group on the ship to explain the region, winery and expected flavors. We had a very nice time."
"Loved this cruise. It was the perfect day and the entire crew is lovely. I was not expecting that much wine! It was well worth the money and I do recommend. My only dislike was that the snacks were on one side of the boat and sometimes it was a little difficult to get to. Next time maybe they should be on both sides."
"We were only under motor, not sails as gusts were 40 to 50 MPH. We did have a great view of the Statue of Liberty, and then went up the East River under the bridges which was a smart move by the Captain. The wine server was knowledgeable about the wines being served, and there were ample tastings. The quality of the wines could have been a little bit better. The cheese was especially good and went well with the wines.Two hours went fast. We had a fun time and met other friendly passengers as well. Overall, a good value for the price."
