Her name is Liberty. Long may she stand.
The Circleline Sightseeing Cruise from Pier 83 in New York City is very popular and it's easy to see why. Big ship with plenty of room inside and out. Two decks so you can find a spot for photos and their are plenty. The New York City skyline, The Statue of Liberty, The Brooklyn Bridge and more on this narrated adventure. They even pointed out Ground Zero from the ship. (Yes, you could take the Staten Island Ferry for free but it's not like this.) Treat yourself and hop aboard Circleline.
I loved the roomy outdoor decks and a snack shop is available onboard. The ride is stable. Two hours fly by and I got to meet folks from all over the world as we "ooohed and aaahed" over the Statue of Liberty. Really good.
