Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Travel independently to the departure point at New York City’s Pier 83. Aim to arrive in good time for your cruise to secure the best seats—they're available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Relax and soak up the panoramic views as your boat sets sail along the Hudson Riverand into New York Harbor. Admire Manhattan’s skyline and its landmarks such as One World Trade Center, the United Nations Headquarters, South Street Seaport, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and more.

Then, take in the views of the Brooklyn Bridge and cruise by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, all as an on-board guide shares snippets on their background and the Big Apple's history. As an alternative to the live narration in English, you can also listen to recorded narration in your choice of seven languages—French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Mandarin, or English—simply by downloading a free cruise app.

During your sightseeing, head for the on-board concession areas to buy drinks and snacks (both own expense), and snap up mementoes from the souvenir store.

Your cruise comes to an end when your boat arrives back at Pier 83.

I called to change my Reservation because my flight didn’t make it in time and nobody got back to me when contacting to do so. They told me they will email back with approval to move my tour to Friday. Haven’t heard anything.
