It's a smaller vessel than most of the other boat/cruise trips available, which makes it a more intimate experience that we thoroughly enjoyed, but the downside is that if you are prone to seasickness, then beware, because you will feel a lot more of the waves, especially from the wakes of others.

The captain was superb in maneuvering the vessel so as to obtain great views of both Queens. The boat staff was friendly and considerate.

More Information


Step aboard the teak decks of the 1920’s style luxury yacht Manhattan for the best seat in the house to bid farewell to Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 as she departs New York Harbor for her final Atlantic crossing.

The Queen Mary 2 will join her for this historic moment and the two ships will sail together from the Statue of Liberty out through the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

Guests on this historic voyage will be treated to elegant passed hors d’ oeuvres and a standard open bar.

Highlights of this 3-hour cruise include:

  • Up close views of two Cunard’s ‘Queens’ – The Queen Elizabeth 2 and the Queen Mary 2 – against the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City Skyline
  • Battery Park, South Street Seaport, and the Financial District
  • Governor’s Island and Ellis Island
  • Parts of Brooklyn and Queens and the New York City skyline
  • The Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges of the East River

Sit back and enjoy the gorgeous 360-degree view of these magnificent cruising vessels from the climate-controlled and enclosed back-deck observatory of the elegant 1920’s-style luxury yacht.
