This morning we were scheduled to attend the Circle Line Radio Disney Kids Cruise. As our luck would have it, on the way to our to the 10:00am cruise, we were in a taxi and got stuck in traffic on 42nd Street behind a giant tow truck. I kept willing the truck to move faster in my mind, but it didn’t listen to me.
We got the dock of The Circle Line at 10:07am and found that the Kids Cruise had already left. I didn’t want to let my kids down, so I went into the Circle Line office and asked if they would let us attend a different cruise instead. They graciously allowed us to hop on board the Liberty Cruise at 10:45am. The kids were psyched.**
The Liberty Cruise is 75 minutes long. I was nervous that the kids would melt down and it would be too long for them. It turned out it was the complete opposite. They were fascinated with all the scenery.
Ari took this picture!
They especially loved looking out at the water.
There’s something about being around water that is therapeutic to kids and adults.
Ari had fun exploring the ship.
As a native New Yorker, I still appreciate being a tourist in my own city. It’s fun to check out historical landmarks like Ellis Island…
