ShipParade - exclusive cruise ship photos reviews and stories about ports of call and cruise experiences

September 13, 2011 - Sailing from New York on a cruise ship was always high on my wish list and here we are. On this beautiful afternoon in September we are standing on the upper decks of the beautiful Crystal Symphony at the start of cruise to Montreal. At precisely 6:00 PM, the lines are cast and our ship backs out from the Manhattan Cruise Terminal on 48th Street. The cruise down the Hudson is as spectacular as you would expect. Crew and guests line the decks of Crystal Symphony as she sails by Chelsea, the Meatpacking District and Lower Manhattan. The sun starts to set as we reach the Statue of Liberty and by the time we sail underneath the Verrazano Narrows Bridge the light is fading. It is absolutely unforgettable. A perfect start to what turned out to be an unforgettable cruise!
