It’s always been a dream to go aboard a tall ship! This fabulous cruise did not disappoint! Glorious!
Beautiful sail through the harbor.

Beautiful sailing experience and the crew was amazing. Loved seeing the city from the water. We sat near the captain and had wonderful views of the sails.
Very Nice Harbor Sunset Cruise

Excellent staff, non narrative cruise that stays in harbor. It is between 1.5 and 1.75 hrs long. Not much formal bench seating, more leaning against objects so keep that in mind. Sunset cruise is busiest. If looking for less crowded pick different time. This review was on there larger tall ship of the two.
Awesome time on the boat!

The views and the crew were fantastic! It was a lovely way to spend our last night of our visit to Boston!
Fun time

It rained most of the time on our cruise, but that was out of their control. The staff was very friendly and it was a nice time. I would've enjoyed learning some history of what we were looking at on the cruise. Also, there weren't places to sit really and mostly standing room, which isn't easy to do for 2 hours. Hoisting the sails was fun though and overall it was a good experience. Maybe sell ponchos! : ) We were soaked by the end.
Worthwhile and memorable sail!

Very Nice

We had a lovely boat ride into the harbor and the crew was real friendly. I do think it would have been nice if there was either some narration on what you are seeing or some background music as it was quiet at times. Overall, it was a great experience and my family enjoyed the trip.

Thank you for letting us know about your experience onboard the Sunset Sail. A narrated cruise is available on Sundays at noon in collaboration with Boston By Foot with a docent onboard. On our regular cruises we encourage guests to ask the crew if you'd like to know a bit more about the harbor. We appreciate your choosing Liberty Fleet!
