By late afternoon on the second day, the skies had turned cloudy and a New York summer downpour appeared likely. With the re-fueling finished and her passengers back abaord, it was time to leave.
Therefore, Sea Princess backed out of her berth into the Hudson River (called the North River at this point).
Once out in the middle of the river, Sea Princess had to turn 90 degrees in order to exit the harbor.
Sea Princess then headed down the river past the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty and on out to sea.
