Detailed Tour Itinerary
Drive By Empire State Building
The dramatic Manhattan skyline looks even more majestic from the water, and on a clear day, passengers can see the Empire State Building and get a peek at some of the different eras of architecture found in the city. From art deco to neo-Gothic to sleek modern skyscrapers crafted of glass and iron, the city has them all.
Drive By 9/11 Memorial
Knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides provide commentary as the ship cruises down the Hudson, past the 9/11 Memorial site. The memorial was built as a way to remember those who lost their lives in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center site, Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.
Drive By Ellis Island
Then the ship slips into the Harbor and cruises by Ellis Island, the complex where so many of our ancestors entered this country. Over 12 million immigrants came to America via the island between 1892 and 1954, and since then, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum has become one of the most visited tour spots in the nation, welcoming nearly two million visitors annually.
Drive By Statue of Liberty
After that, it's a look at the most famous resident of New York, the Statue of Liberty. Given to the people of New York by the French in 1886, Lady Liberty measures 111 feet and one inch, from head to toes. Her nose is 4.5 feet long, and her waist is 36 feet in circumference. After allowing passengers to get a good look at the Lady from several different angles, the ship turns around and heads back to its starting point.
