    It was ok - we sat on the water vs actually sailing and we didn’t even get to stay on the water for the sunset. We went back before the sun set. Would not recommend for the high cost. Staff were very nice though and it’s a cool sailboat.

    There are no chairs on the ship. You may end up sitting on the floor. Crew was awesome. Beautiful sunset.
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    Hello and thank you for sailing with Liberty Fleet. Your review is useful for future guests to let them know about the sitting situation. Since our ships are genuine working girls/schooners chairs are not a part of the set up. Deck boxes and other seating options serve that purpose We ARE glad to hear that you had a good time onboard and got a beautiful sunset as well.

    Weather was poor. I purchased cancellation tickets and I could not reschedule so I did not take the cruise and lost $$ Wish I could reschedule but team said no. Call if still possible 770-570-7065
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    The weather cancellation insurance offers a refund for when the captain cancels a cruise. It does not offer the option to reschedule based on a guest's preferences/decisions. Sailing is an all weather event and if the weather cooperates the ships still sail. We are sorry to hear that you did not join us for your sail but we usually recommend that guests dress for the weather and enjoy sailing whether it is cloudy or sunny.

    We had a great time aboard the Liberty Star. The crew was excellent and even let people help with the sail by raising the three sails including my daughter. I would highly recommend the sunset cruise in Boston Harbor to anyone.

    Overpriced
    Deema_M
    , Jun 2022
    This was a nice boat but incredibly overpriced. $59 with tax is ridiculous for something like this considering there was no music and hardly enough seating for everyone. I wish I could get my money back. We were supposed to leave at 4:30 but didn’t leave until around 4:45 and they still had us coming back at 6. I paid $50 for a boat cruise with a DJ group that lasted for 2.5 hours so this was a ripoff.

    Day or evening, this is a must-do tour of Boston.

    This was by far my favorite tour in Boston and we did many. Kevin, Eric, and Niko were a blast. This is a real sailboat, if we would have had wind, it would heel to the side, so if you're not comfortable on boast, this might not be your tour, as it was I wish there would have been the option for a more advanced day sail. I could have spent hours on the liberty sail enjoying the water and sun. Highly highly recommend this tour and its crew, they had the perfect mix of safety and fun.

    Magnificent way to see Boston. We took a sunset tour, and even though the skies were overcast, being out on the water on a sailing ship as sunset thickened into night was gorgeous. The tour was full, but did not seem overcrowded. The captain and crew were hilarious as well as masterful at their business. I think everyone was enchanted. Our family (parents and 13 year old) certainly was.

    Captain and crew were great, you could tell they knew what they were doing. We felt they were too many people on the boat. Most of the time was spent trying to find a suitable place to relax. Other than that, would recommend

    Such a nice way to see the city! A relaxing perspective on a busy city, seeing it from the water gives a totally different look and feel to Boston. The crew was very fun and courteous, and shared lots of fun information about the harbor. Highly recommend this!

    Captain looks cool! But I like sailing farther away from the harbour, so that we can see different scenery instead of just watching the night scene of the city around the harbour.
