There wasn't anything particularly wrong with the trip it just wasn't even close to what was advertised. To call this a sip & Sail is hilarious to me. Not only were there no wine offered, we didn't even get water or snacks. Some folks on the boat brought their own which I guess is what you need to do but this was not made clear in the slightest. I was also told there was going to be a stop at a Winery and there was not. We just went out on the water for 2 hours and returned. The staff were fine but they weren't very engaging. Did not learn really anything about sailing or Newport.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Jack, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback! I sincerely apologize for the confusion on the expectations of the experience. This experience has a great twist as it is a two for one deal. I hope that the provider reached out to give you details on the sip portion of the experience. Nonetheless, I am sorry to here that this great experience did not live up to the hype. I truly hope the next adventure you choose to embark on exceeds all expectations! Regards, Kayleen
Great crew! Beautiful Sail
