Which is the best side of the ship when leaving New York?



When departing Brooklyn Cruise terminal the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island will be on the starboard side (right) and if you look aft (back) you will see the Manhattan skyline. 

When arriving into Brooklyn Cruise terminal the port side (left) of the ship will afford you views of the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island. 

An unmissable viewing opportunity would be to be on the top deck to watch the ship's funnel pass under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge with 10m clearance. 

Also, by being on the top deck, you will be able to take advantage of the panoramic views and therefore be able to see the scenery on both sides.
