Cruising From New York

Cruising from New York

Welcome to "Skyscraper National Park," as Kurt Vonnegut dubbed this amazing city.

New York is so much a part of the world's imagination, you may think you've got the city pegged even if you've never been there! New York still holds a myriad of additional surprises - there's always something exciting around the next corner. It's a captivating, awesome, varied and glamorous empire.New York remains the city by which all other cities are judged. You have to see it to believe it and even then you might find it difficult to believe your eyes!

The city comprises the central island of Manhattan along with four other boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. To many, Manhattan is New York. The 22-square-mile island is divided into the three districts of Downtown, Midtown and Upper Manhattan. There are countless museums, theaters, restaurants, parks and towering skyscrapers.

The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Carnegie Hall, Wall Street, Broadway, New York Harbor are just some of the sights. Many residents never get to see it all in a lifetime, so don’t expect to take it all in during one visit.The central location of New York makes it a wonderful alternative for cruise lines to call home port. For you, the traveler, it also makes sense.
Cruises from New York to see the most popular Caribbean and Mexican destinations, Europe, Canada and New England. Take a transatlantic cruise on the Queen Mary.
