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.

PRINSENDAM and VIKING STAR - Elegance, Comfort and Style at Sea

Few modern-day passenger ships have earned as loyal a clientele as Holland America Line’s 30‑year old PRINSENDAM. Following in her wake in the small ship market is Viking Ocean Cruises’ three-year old VIKING STAR. Both ships were conceived as upscale, premium cruise ships with modern Scandinavian décor. On Thursday, March 22, 2018, PONY Branch Vice Chairman David Hume will present a program comparing the stylistic differences and amenities of these two popular cruise ships. See Meetings & Activities for details. (Photos: David G. Hume)
