Take in Lower Manhattan, one of the Big Apple’s most fascinating areas, boasting many of the city’s famous landmarks. A panoramic sightseeing drive will take you past Times Square, famous for America’s New Year celebrations, lively Chinatown, the tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village and the oh-so-fashionable SoHo district, whose name derives from its location south of Houston Street. From Battery Park, you will enjoy the view of the Statue of Liberty in the distance. Heading back uptown you’ll pass the austere United Nations Plaza (time permitting), Rockefeller Center with its famous flags and statue, and the instantly recognizable Empire State Building. A drive by beautiful Central Park, New York’s in-city oasis, completes your tour before you continue to the airport.
This tour is only available to guests with domestic flights departing after 3pm or international flights departing after 4pm. It is critical that the tour guests disembark the ship in the first group to ensure that the guests have ample time to collect their luggage and embark the tour coach and that the tour leaves the pier on time (no later than 9am). If there is a delay, the duration of the tour will be reduced to ensure that the guests arrive to the airport at the designated time.
