Deck/Bar Statue of Liberty

Just off the Escape last week.  Spice H2O was the best.  Can walk from side to side and the bar was open! 

We then went up to the top most sundeck (deck 20) for sailing under the Verazzano Bridge. It's  a smaller space, no bar, but wasn't too crowded. Enjoy!

Saling out of new york on the Escape, what's is the best deck with a bar nearby that will have great view of nyc skyline and the statue of liberty

Deck 19 all the way forward. No bar there. If you want to get a good spot, go there immediately after muster without delay. Walk up quickly if you can. Don’t stop for a drink. After you secure a spot near the center metal divider, send someone to the pool for a beverage. Have fun!

Is spice open to everyone for this part of the cruise?

If you're asking this because of the Adult only policy before 7pm, I can't remember if they allowed kids in Spice H2O for the sailaway.  I don't think it would be a big deal though since everyone is near the sides looking at the NYC skyline or the Statue of Liberty and you'll pass those 2 areas in about 10-15 minutes. There is a smoking area near the bar which is on the Statue of Liberty side if that bothers you.

Unless you really want to be up high to go under the bridge, I don't see the appeal of Deck 19; it is crowded and not the best view.  Spice H20 you to move from side to side to see both the Manhattan Skyline and Statue of Liberty, and then look aft to see both together after the ship has passed them.  I'm not a fan of the design of the railings/windblocks on Spice, but those are more of an issue for photos than watching scenery while enjoying a drink.

 

Deck 8 is also great; many bars to grab a drink and the aft section has a similar view to Spice, only a bit lower and with fewer obstructions.  As mentioned Spice has a smoking area and may impose restrictions on kids, so if those are issues for you Deck 8 may be a better alternative.

 Muster drill will take place BEFORE you sail. 

45-50 minutes from Pier 88 to the VZ Bridge once you are underway. 

Listen to the Captain’s announcements.

 

Have a great cruise!

 

P.S. Best place for sailaway views either side is your BALCONY. 

Return trip will see what you missed.
