We continue to one of America’s most exciting and vibrant cities, New York. You’ll spend the next three nights just moments away from glittering New York, “the city that never sleeps.” Feel the pulse of this magnificent city.
Day Five — Ellis Island and The National September 11 Memorial and Museum
We sail across New York Harbor to visit Ellis Island and see the Statue of Liberty. This precious American monument symbolizes the ideals established by the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Ellis Island, once a major entry point for millions during the 19th and 20th centuries, now houses a museum honoring the ethnic diversity of our immigrant forefathers. Fascinating exhibits, including the Registry Room, and Through America’s Gate, all illustrate the path followed by the more than 16 million immigrants. This afternoon we pay a stirring visit to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center. Here, tribute is paid to those who were killed and to those whose heroics brought the nation together. For dinner, we head to Rockefeller Center.
