New York Cruises

New York is one of the most popular destinations in the world when it comes to a cruise holiday, with the ‘Big Apple’ being visited by all of the major cruise lines.

It’s also a city where you’ll find no shortage of things to see and do during your time ashore either, with the city that never sleeps being packed with attractions that are simply waiting to be explored.

For a start, you might fancy getting up close to the Statue of Liberty, which has long welcomed people heading into New York by sea and is one of the most iconic structures anywhere in the USA.

Located on Liberty Island near to the harbour entrance, the statue was a gift of friendship from the people of France and a trip to the viewing platform at the top gives top class views across the New York city skyline.

It’s far from the only place to head if you want to explore the view either, with the possibility of taking a trip up another iconic structure; the Empire State Building. Found in the heart of Manhattan, the building is home to various shops and restaurants as well as two observation decks – with the chance to see up to 80 miles on a clear day.

The Top of the Rock observation deck located on the top of the famous Rockefeller Centre also offers panoramic views across the city.

Whilst in the heart of New York, you might also like to see the bright lights of Times Square, sample shopping in famous department stores such as Bloomingdales and Macy’s, or escape the hustle and bustle of the city streets with a stroll through the iconic surroundings of Central Park; the most visited urban park to be found anywhere in the USA.

The park in itself is packed with attractions, which include a zoo, the Belvedere Castle, a seasonal amusement park, the Burnett Memorial Fountain and an open air theatre.

New York is also home to a countless museums and galleries that you might want to visit, with the Natural History Museum, the National Jazz Museum and the New York Transit Museum being just three to consider.

During a visit to the city, you might also want to spend some time at the National September 11 Memorial, which remembers the 2,977 people who were killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon back in 2001.

The memorial opened on the site of the Twin Towers in 2011 and is where you’ll find the special panels that list the names of each victim, as well as the six people who died in the 1993 bombing.
