Speed straight to the feet of Lady Liberty on a Statue of Liberty Express Cruise!
Short on time during your New York vacation? No problem! This one-hour cruise around downtown Manhattan and out to the Statue of Liberty will help you save time and still see everything you want. Download the Circle Line Skyline Navigator Companion App and enjoy a narrated tour in your mother tongue. Pick up a tasty snack from our onboard café, sit back, and enjoy spectacular views of the New York skyline from the waters of New York Harbor!
Then, try to take the perfect selfies as you cruise by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Gifted to the U.S. by France, the Statue of Liberty employs significant symbolism, from the broken chains at the lady’s feet to the tablet containing the date of America’s independence. Standing tall at 305 feet and 6 inches, she is quite a sight to behold. You will also cruise by Ellis Island, where roughly 40% of today’s Americans can trace an ancestor who passed through the immigrations. These two iconic American landmarks give you a combined sense of what newcomers must have felt like when coming into the New York Harbor after a days-long, sea-tossed journey.
Finally, sail back to the pier and catch one last glimpse of the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center, and many other New York attractions. If you want to get to Liberty Island as quickly as possible, then the Statue of Liberty Express Cruise is what to do in New York!
