Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
The fame of New York is not bound to one particular structure or monument. Apart from the Lady of Liberty, New York is well known for its elegantly constructed bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is a shining example of New York’s 19th century engineering marvels.
You will also get a chance to visit the relatively newer but equally popular Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Soccer has long been a part of American culture. Made from 11,000 pieces of Indiana limestone, granite, and concrete, this stadium captures the culture and glory of American football. It has maintained many of the old stadium’s features and never strayed too far from its roots.
There are few cruises which cover New York’s most beautiful sites as comprehensively as the Complete Manhattan Island Cruise. The chance to see all the boroughs of New York in a single cruise is an exciting opportunity you cannot miss. From getting one of the best views of the statue of liberty to drifting under legendary bridges like the Brooklyn Bridge and the George Washington Bridge, this trip gives you a truly unique New York experience.
When you begin your cruise at Pier 83 on the Hudson River, you will instantly notice the exquisite quality of your cruise boat. This will be nothing short of your home for the next two-and-a-half hours. It is loaded with space on the outer deck, an air-conditioned lobby, enormous windows that will serve perfectly for sightseeing, and much more. Gently cruise through some of New York’s most iconic attractions; the things that define the city itself. The Statue of Liberty is always a glorious symbol of freedom to behold and admire. Your guide will tell you more about it on the trip.
Punctuate your tour with freshly made sandwiches, salads, and snacks. A full bar that serves both hot and cold beverages is also available. As the cruise takes you through Upper Manhattan. It is hard not to soak in the greenery and overall serenity of this place. A visit to the three rivers that run through New York City, the five boroughs, and more than 20 of the city’s finest bridges, this tour is sure to leave you with a deep satisfaction and a longing to just keep floating around the Manhattan Island.
