Does Anthem sail by Statue of Liberty/Manhattan?

Recommended Posts

I am reading a live blog that mentions the Captain took them by the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan and then turned around to head out to sea. I thought this was one of the neat experiences of sailing out of Bayonne but others mentioned that they couldn't believe the Captain did that- that it's not usually the case. Veteran Anthem travelers - what was your experience?

When we left last Friday we actually left an hour behind schedule. There was no time to detour. I think @twangster had a special experience that time. 

We had a port side balcony and we could see the manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty, but not up close.

The NY/NJ harbor is pretty busy and most times a harbor tour isn't authorized by the port authority.  It isn't that Royal wouldn't love to make this a standard part of the cruise, but it's out of their hands and in the hands of local officials.  Of 3 Anthem cruises It happened once for me.  I documented it in this live blog:
