Overview

There are actually two cruise departure ports in New York. One of the ports is located in New York City (also called Manhattan), while the other port is in nearby Brooklyn, NY.

New York City is one of the most populous and famous cities in the world. Known as "the city that never sleeps," New York City truly offers something for everyone. There is Times Square, Broadway, Rockefeller Center, the American Museum of Natural History and so much more.

Brooklyn is one of New York's five boroughs. Brooklyn offers nice dining options, but does not offer nearly as much for tourists as New York City does.

Cruises leaving from New York are very popular, especially for those that live in the nearby areas (as they are able to avoid flying). Such cruises are also very popular with people from far away areas, as they are able to stay in a hotel in NYC for a few days and combine that with a cruise, creating a wonderful vacation experience.



Destinations
The following destinations can be visited on a cruise leaving from New York:
Bahamas
Bermuda
Canada & New England
Caribbean (Eastern, Southern & Western)

Language
The official language is English. However, in perhaps the most diverse city in the world you're going to find a lot of people that speak a wide range of languages. For example, in Chinatown you're going to find many people that speak Chinese, many of which do not even speak English.


Tourist Attractions
New York City is filled with a seemingly endless list of famous tourist attractions, museums, restaurants, night clubs and more.

Times Square is perhaps the most famous area in New York City. This is an area with many famous attractions, such as the MTV studio, the ESPN Zone, the NBA Store, Madame Tussauds (wax museum), Planet Hollywood and much, much more.

The 102-story Empire State Building is a famous skyscraper that is available for tours. It is currently the tallest building in New York City.

The world-famous Statue of Liberty is located off the cost of New York City. The statue was a gift from France and is the US' symbol of freedom. Ellis Island, located near the statue, is where (until 1954) immigrants coming to the US would register prior to being allowed entry into the US (it no longer is in operation, as it's a museum now).

Central Park is also very well known, as it is one of the most famous parks in the US. It is the location of many concerts, a zoo, a popular running area and is a very popular relaxation spot. Greenwich Village and SoHo are both very popular cultural areas.

As far as nightlife goes, there are many night clubs, bars, lounges and (of course) Broadway. Broadway is where you can see some of the finest live theatrical performances in the world. Besides Broadway, there is also Radio City Music Hall (where muscials and concerts are performed) and Madison Square Garden (where various professional sports teams play and concerts can be seen). In the nearby Bronx, the Yankees can be seen playing baseball during their season.

Since there are so many cultures thriving in New York City there are certain regions that have developed. For example, there is Chinatown and Little Italy. Each area features excellent dining options.
