Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Fri 28 Sep 2012 New York, USA 4.00pm
Quick Getaway Cruise New York is situated on a large natural harbour on the Atlantic coast of northeastern United States. With its world-class museums, big statues, even bigger buildings - certainly the Manhattan's skyline with its many skyscrapers is universally recognised, a whole lot of ‘whooo-wheee’ - and being the most linguistically diverse city in the world, the Big Apple’s hyperactive rush keeps drawing more and more people to it. The City of New York is a densely packed mass of humanity and all this living on top of one another makes the New Yorker a special kind of person.

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable icons of the United States and a practical, and free, way to absorb its attraction is to take the Staten Island Ferry’s one hour round trip. Other major destinations include Ellis Island, Washington Square Park, Rockefeller Centre, Times Square, and museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. For families, Central Park, the Bronx Zoo, South Street Seaport, and the New York Botanical Garden are very popular. Those who love shopping will be sure to visit Fifth and Madison Avenues, while all appreciate the free performances in Central Park. Here one also finds the work of local artists on display.

The famous Empire State Building and the Top of the Rock Observation Decks, both offer delightful views of the city. Try the diverse haute cuisine restaurants as well as the contrasting street fare of hot dogs and pretzels. Food tours allow visitors to try a wide variety of these foods economically and learn about the city's culture. New York City has a rich musical culture and history. Then there are numerous jazz, gospel music, rock and roll, rhythm and blues and hip hop tours available. Popular locations for music tours include Harlem and the East Village.

Norwegian Gem sails from New York. Around September each year 7-night cruises visit the magnificent New England coast and the Canadian Maritime Provinces. For other months she sails to the Caribbean. Until April 2016 Norwegian Gem runs 10-night cruises to four island-ports in the Eastern Caribbean (with five sea days). From October to December 2016 Norwegian Gem is based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and over 7 nights calls at five ports in the Leeward Islands (with only one sea day). These cruises show off the culture and beauty of the Caribbean.
