To get views of both Manhattan Skyline and the Statue, you'll need to be up on deck.

You'll pass the statue on your starboard side. I suggest aft, and out on deck if the weather cooperates.

We sailed out of New York in early February two years ago and I have to say the experience has left me with grand memories. Dress warm and get up on the deck early. The lights coming on in Manhatten, The statue of Liberty, it was all wonderful. The deck got crowded early so bundle up and enjoy.

As high up as you can get, and as far forward or aft. Liberty Island, and Ellis Island as well, are to starboard. Also, stick around for the "sail-under" of the Verazzano Narrows Bridge. From the top of the ship, you can see the rivets holding it together.
All in all, Manhattan is the best sailaway experience!
