Videos of the Cruise
We last took this cruise in October 2014 and loved every minute of it. We made some videos to show you the different views and sights you get to see during the cruise. This was definitely a new and interesting way to explore NYC giving us some unique views of the most popular attractions, and also making sure we saw some that we would have otherwise never visited. From the nature and beaches up to the main sights, like the Brooklyn Bridge or the George Washington Bridge and the Palisades Park, the cruise was an amazing and informative experience. Check out our videos of our experience below!
