New York Cruises and Cruise Ships


Bill Miller reports from New York that "1,000,000 passengers, most of them on cruise ships, departed from NY in 2012. Fall is the busiest period. Recently, on a Saturday afternoon earlier this month, 6 cruise liners departed. 
 Four of them were in Manhattan - AIDACARA, CARNIVALGLORY, NORWEGIAN GEM and CARNIVAL SPLENDOR."

The date of this meeting was 14 September 2013...
In September 1997 I spent a Saturday afternoon with Bill Miller photographing the departure of the cruise ships from the same spot those have now been taken, in New Jersey. By then ships were quite different and included former liners - SOUTHERN CROSS and OLYMPIA as well as second generation cruise ships like SONG OF AMERICA.
