Easy to find. We got lucky by getting a parking spot in the garage near by. The ship was decorated for Christmas, it was adorable & cozy. Everyone was very friendly. They even offered to take pictures of us in front of the Statue of Liberty. Drinks were delicious, I had the Dark & Stormy. Plus they served a little tray of cookies to each table towards the end. That was cute & unexpected. I will say though that I (along with those around me that complained out lout) could hardly understand a word the captain was saying when he used the microphone. It was very muffled, like the teacher from Charlie Brown. I would have loved to hear what he was saying about the different sights.
