Yes, you will be able to see the Statue of Liberty in the distance on the port side when you sail out - she is between you and the Manhattan skyline. She is also very small! And if you check the RCI shore excursion web site it does not appear that there are any tours via NY en route back to the airport.
Having cruised the caribean from new york ican confirm that you do sail past the statue of liberty both in and out.the best way to see new york are on the tour buses. they leave aprox every 30 minutes. enjoy ur trip.

My husband and I did a cruise from New York with NCL three years ago from New York and returning to New York It was around the same time of the year as you. We sailed past the statue of Liberty in and out and it was a fantatic sight to see it at night all lite up. I would recoomend you do a pre cruise package for around 3 nts and see the wonder sights new york has to offer. If you are doing this then your Hotel will be able to help you or check out one of the websites. I do recommend you buy a gude book on New York otherwise you will miss allot. Take some winter clothes as it could be cold, we alos had a 10 hours wait before or flight back to UK but we decided just to have a room at the airport as the weather turned nasty snow like you have never seen before and New York cut off from other states.Check with Royal Caribbean direct re city tour the have a UK office and are very helpful.
Yes you will pass the statue of liberty in and out. As for the trips there are plenty availaible in New York itself. You can buy tickets virtually on every street for bus or river or combination of both.
We returned in May 07 from the Explorer of the seas, not sure if this will help as you may be on a different route but we didn't pass the statue of liberty, you can see it from a distance but not close up and nor returning. Regarding the return we were taken off the ship first call at 10o/c am and was taken to newark airport where we spent 10 hours with nothing to do, unfortunately you can not check in your bags until 3o.c pm if you are flying with british airways this unfortunately spoilt our holiday so hope this information may help for you to perhaps arrange something before you leave and arrange for your luggage to go in storage somewhere.

The Statue of Liberty is on an island just off Manhatten Island. All shipping has to pass by Liberty Island on its way into and out of New York. As a matter of intrest the island next to Liberty Island is Ellis Island where all imigrants landed up to the 1950,s. If you get chance it is well worth a visit.
Try this web site for tours we have just got back and it was well worth the money.
it was a small mini bus, the tour guides knew their subject and they get off with you and do guided tours off the bus, went to all the places you want and finish at the empire state building if you wish to go up there as well. You also go past the statue of liberty on a ferry with this trip so if you don't sail past on your cruise it doesn't matter. the trip0 was 5 1/2 hours long.
Hi, we went on carribean cruise last xmas from new york, with norwegian, you sail right past the statue of liberty both ways. fantastic sight especially if sailing late afternoon and it is going dark and it is all lit up. i am not sure with whether you can get a trip to fill in your time before going to the airport with the cruise line you are going with, but i have cruised a few times and each cruise has offered a trip to the airport and in between (whether it be everglades in florida or new york cruise and dine)((it often depends on the time gap between disembarking and the time you fly) you will be able to book this on the cruise. i am pretty sure they will offer this service, all cruises appear to offer similar. have great time .
