After fishing on a party boat off Brooklyn’s south shore, you become acquainted with the way bridges appear – and sound – from underneath.
One thing I’ve never had the chance to do is glimpse the Verrazano from a cruise ship, and I don’t mean Circleline. I’m talking about seeing the Verrazano from the upper deck of a colossal ocean liner as it sails from New York Bay to a sunny Caribbean locale, or maybe on the first leg of some trans-Atlantic adventure.
In the above video, passengers aboard the Caribbean Princess cruise ship pass beneath the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on August 4, 2009.
According to the video’s description, the cruise’s ports of call were West End, Bermuda; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USA Virgin Islands; and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. The cruise began and ended at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook.
