Spend some time uncovering the delights of NYC, the most exciting city in the world. You’ll never be bored as there is so much to do here – a few of our favourite attractions include wandering past the flowers and art exhibits of the elevated High Line, soaking up the views from the top of the Empire State Building and re-enacting Breakfast at Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue. Once you’ve taken in the sights, watch the New York skyline come alive after dark on your sunset Harbor Lights Cruise.
