The Statue of Liberty Cruise is narrated by a professional tour guide. Food and snacks are available for purchase onboard.
The Statue of Liberty, a National Monument protected by the United States National Park Service, was first given to the United States as a token of goodwill from France in 1886. Statue of Liberty now stands as an international symbol of freedom and democracy, giving particular comfort to Americans and pride to New Yorkers in the post-September 11th era.
You will also see Ellis Island on a Statue of Liberty Cruise. Ellis Island was once the immigration hub of the nation. Half of the present-day population of the United States traces its roots back to ancestors who arrived in America by ship. These weary travelers often waited with the masses at Ellis Island through periods of quarantine and hardship before gaining entry to the Land of Opportunity.
