What You Can Expect
All was good, but the wine was for tasting....portions a little on the stingy side. However, the boat trip even without the wine was worth the fare and beers were available for those who were thirsty for one! Not much wind for us so we motored out and got an up close view of the Statue of Liberty. Good views of manhattan skyline, New hersy, Ellis Island and Governors Island
Beautiful day, lovely welcoming hosts, gorgeous old sailing vessel, fantastic cruising and getting up close to the Lady.
The experience was wonderful but just a couple of disappointing facets; they didn't stop me enjoying the sail though. Wines we tasted were from Spain? Coming to America from a wine producing nation like OZ it was disappointing that such a perfect sailing experience was not supported by US wines. I was looking for every opportunity to experience the best of the US.
Identification of Marina on trip information was good but no locals in the area could confirm we were at the right jetty- maybe some signage at the dock would be helpful. And just a tip: it would have been preferable that we were emailed/contacted once the issue with the amenities was confirmed as a problem.
Don't take these criticisms as a reason not to do this cruise; it was a wonderful way to spend Sunday afternoon. Call it constructive criticism.
