Independence Day in New York
You will sail through the New York Harbor and be able to see why the call New York the city that never sleeps. Especially on Independence Day, everyone on board will be in a festive mood celebrating the day that the Americans declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. There is historical dispute regarding the actual day of independence. The United States (then only thirteen colonies) was legally separated on the 2nd of July, but the Declaration of Independence was only signed by all members of congress on the 2nd of August. John Adams did predict the impact the day would have on future generations, saying: “It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Join in the celebration of the 4th of July too and marvel at the Manhattan skyline at night on the fireworks boat tour!
