Quantum of the Seas

The PONY Branch provides its members and guests with monthly illustrated programs in midtown Manhattan, activities such as ship visits, harbor trips, ocean-going cruises at group rates and the annual ocean liner bazaar.

Our website aims to be the premier resource regarding Port of New York passenger shipping, current port news, events that celebrate its history, what to see along the waterfront and how to explore our great harbor.

A special feature is the annual schedule of the port's cruise ship arrivals and departures at the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bayonne terminals.

Royal Caribbean's QUANTUM OF THE SEAS is seen here in Upper New York Bay departing for the southern Caribbean on April 12, 2015, with One World Trade Center off her bow and the Statue of Liberty to stern. After spending her inaugural 2014-2015 season sailing from the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, New Jersey, the 4,180-passenger QUANTUM OF THE SEAS, will be repositioning to China in May. Royal Caribbean's LIBERTY OF THE SEAS will then serve Cape Liberty until the arrival of the next QUANTUM-class ship, the new ANTHEM OF THE SEAS, in November 2015. Photo by Stuart Gewirtzman.
