Saturday A Quiet Port - Sunday Things Pick Up
|Manhattan Cruise Terminal on a busy day. - NY Economic Development Organization|
New York Harbor looked sad this Saturday. The temperature in New York City peaked out at 53 degrees and Sunny on Saturday 2/22/2020. People were outside enjoying the warmer weather and as I walked along the river - no cruise ships were in port. None of the busy port traffic was chris-crossing the Hudson River. Only the occasional ferry was sailing between New Jersey and New York. Missing were the excursion boats, tug traffic, yachts, pleasure craft and most of all - the cruise ships. The marine traffic was noticeably missing as the cruise ship piers remained empty.
Sunday saw the arrival of the Norwegian Bliss and Anthem of the Seas. The Norwegian Bliss docked alongside pier 88 in Manhattan. The Anthem of the Seas docked in Cape Liberty, Bayonne, NJ. Both ships - surprisingly sailed on time which has been infrequent for the Norwegian Bliss.
The Norwegian Bliss and Anthem of the Seas were sailing on itineraries to Cape Canaveral Florida, Nassau, Bahamas and their respective Private Islands (Royal Caribbean - Coco Cay, Bahamas; Norwegian Cruise Line - Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas). Both private islands are so close together that both ships can see each other from their dock / anchorage while enjoying the day at the island retreat.
