FLEET BAR: One of the nicest rooms afloat, the Fleet Bar is the highest up (11 Deck) and furthest forward of any of the public rooms aboard the Zenith. The Port, Starboard and forward walls are lined with windows for an incomparable set of views, and the color scheme is restricted to white and royal blue, with a few brass highlights. Zenith and Horizon were built before the zealous misuse of color became 'the norm' and so most of the rooms are considerably quieter than one now expects aboard ship.

The best feature of the Fleet Bar is the collection of Chandris Line memorabilia which was left on board when Chandris sold out to Royal Caribbean. Shown is a model of the Meridian.

A pre-departure view of NYC's latest tourist attraction. A grounded Concorde has been added to the Intrepid complex.

Downriver a bit we come to the preserved arch from one of the old piers. Not sure if this was Cunard or White Star back in the day.

A closer view. The Atrium in the foreground is perhaps the most visible reminder of 9/11 on the site. In the days following the murder, several news photos were sent out showing it partially smashed and encased in the debris from one of the fallen towers. I, for one, am glad to see that it was saved. Beyond it stood the towers, and in the background the cadaverous US Steel Building aka 1 Liberty Plaza which replaced the Singer tower back in 1968-70. One of the least loved buildings in the city prior to 9/11, it was badly damaged and for a few days afterwards was rumored to be about to fall. It survived, and survives, although only time will tell if it will gain 'beloved' status after 30+ years of being the neighborhood architectural pariah.

One of the more unforgettable moments on a NYC departure, is passing under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, which stands about where Quarantine used to be.

Jim. That pier with the preserved arch is Pier 54 which used to be the old Cunard Line pier.That is the same pier that back in 1912 the Cunard Ship Carpathia docked with the survivors of the Titanic tragedy aboard.The Lusitania sailed from this same pier in 1915 on that voyage when she was sunk by the German submarine.
