    address is incorrect

    This cruise was really hard to find - the address provided was not where the cruise was and showing up to this location caused us to miss the boat. We were not able to refund or rebook either....
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
    Hello Paige - Liberty Fleet was contacted by another member in your party after you missed your cruise and we would like to point out that the person who booked the reservation received detailed directions for checking in and for finding the ship. As a matter of fact the confirmation email emphasizes that guests DO NOT go to the office address. Please see parts of the email exchange below. We encourage our guests to read their confirmation emails which contains all information needed . "Good evening Robin and Paige - We are sorry to hear that the Bachelorette Party missed the boat. It is always sad when we have to leave passengers behind. However, the ships need to leave on time and are unable to wait which is why we recommend an earlier arrival time (to leave time for parking, traffic, and finding the booth & ship). As stated by the office to your party, Liberty Fleet is unable to refund your tickets purchased for a Sunset Sail. Liberty Fleet held seven spots for your party which then were not filled. I also checked the phone records and we did not receive any phone calls from the number listed in the booking. The office could have easily pointed the Bachelorette Party in the right direction. Liberty Fleet makes sure that we provide good directions and are accessible via phone and email when guests need assistance. You could not be rebooked as this was the last cruise of the day and the next day's cruises were sold out. I have copied the information you received via TripAdvisor/Viator which describes the ships as being by the New England Aquarium and where the ticket booth is located. We give directions to the ticket booth on CENTRAL WHARF, not to our office. As a courtesy we can offer a credit for up to seven tickets to be used during a daytime sail before our season ends on 10/10/2022. An arrival of time of 6pm is too late, as indicated in the confirmation email you received when you booked the ticket. Time needs to be allowed for boarding. The ship departs at 6pm. It is in no way the fault of the captain as it is clearly stated that passengers should allow time before the cruise. The ship must leave at the appointed time due to the boat traffic in that harbor." We hope that this clarifies the situation and that future guests will hereby know that the confirmation email contains important information for the cruise.

    Beautiful night. The only negative was captain Shakespeare. I understand that he has a responsibility for passenger and crew safety. But his negative attitude was a little over the top

    The perfect weather was secondary to the experience we had with the captain and his crew. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with any who had questions or concerns. The libations were delightful and the captain’s tales and stories made for a wonderful memory from our visit to Boston.

    Our captain was a blast and his crew were fun. We met lots of interesting people and learned about our very interesting vessel. I thought we'd pick up a little more steam on this light-winded day so that was my only disappointment. But I'd go again in a heartbeat.

    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.
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback about your experience onboard. It is true that one cannot see the sunset from Boston Harbor as the city skyline lies to the we of the water, The attraction of this cruise is not just the actual sunset but the lighting up of the skyline and the colors in the sky. We hope that you were able to see that part of the surroundings. Depending on the time of year the experience changes as the sunset changes daily. We appreciate that you chose to sail with Liberty Fleet!
