Question

Lady Liberty/Verrazano?

Hi- Which cabin side of the ship will you see the Statue of Liberty and Verazano Bridge from your room on the Cruise to Nowhere Gem Jan 10 2014? Thank you!

Good morning, I just literally dragged in from the 1 night, marathon of activity for those who don't get out as much as we use to, cruise to nowhere and for the bridge you can see it from either side because you are going under it. Assuming you are facing the front of the boat, rooms to the left side will see the Brooklyn, Queens, Coney Island and Long Island view. Rooms to the right will see New Jersey and Staten Island. The best views are from inside in Spinnaker Lounge at the front of ship or on Deck, just take your coat and hat if it's winter but it is worth it. It looks like I might be to late for you but hopefully me answer is good for others with similar questions.

The Statue of Liberty is on the starboard (hight hand)side of the ship. You pass under the bridge, so any balcony cabin would work. From what I have read the best view is not from your balcony but from the upper decks where you may see NYC in all of its grandeur.

The Starboard side (right side facing forward) will have the view of the Statue of Liberty and New Jersey when leaving New York. The bridge can be viewed from either side as the ship passes under it.

To view the statue of liberty you want to be on the starboard side of the ship or the right side; for the Verranzano bridge, in my opinion you want to be toward the front of the ship facing forward, but either side of the ship you will also get a terrific view.

The Chef's table dinner occurs just once per cruise and is limited to 12 guests per cruise. I would suggest making the reservation on the first day of your cruise.

We ate at Chef's Table on the Star. They had one seating, for 12 people. We literally were asked 30 minutes after we boarded if we were interested in seats, and we got the last two.

So take that for what you will....good luck!

You can only bring wine on board but you will have to pay a corkage fee per bottle. Beer or alcohol will be confiscated and returned to you at the end of the cruise. Refer to the following link for details and fees.

http://www.ncl.com/faq#alcohol-consumption

Beer can be purchased by the bucket (buy 5, get 6) at any time on the ship. 6 bottles of wine can be purchased at a discount (20% off I think) the first day only.
