Cruises from Bayonne
 

Cruise from Bayonne, New Jersey

Status of LibertyA newer cruise departure point, Cape Liberty Port, in Bayonne, NJ, is located directly across from Manhattan. The New Jersey location, while giving a great view of this majestic city and its well-known landmarks, features far less traffic, is convenient to the Newark Liberty International Airport, and serves as the origin point for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruise ships.

Royal Caribbean cruises from Bayonne include the Explorer of the Seas and the brand new Quantum of the Seas. These cruise ships offer a wide range of Bermuda, Bahamas, Canada and Caribbean cruises from Bayonne, NJ.  In addition to Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises provides 7-night Bermuda cruises from New Jersey on the Celebrity Summit.

While owned by Royal Caribbean, the Cape Liberty Port is part of a multi-billion dollar redevelopment project for The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. Opened in 2004, the Bayonne cruise port inhabits the former Bayonne Navy Base/MOTBY facility and now has the second largest passenger volume among Northeast and Mid-Atlantic terminals. In the future, The Peninsula is expected to hold new residences, businesses, a marina, and park. Convenient for those driving in from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, Cape Liberty Port offers long-term parking for cruise travelers.

Cruises from New JerseyThis Bayonne cruise terminal, aside from being adjacent to New York City, is in a perfect location for commuters. Rather than dealing with the hectic and unpredictable traffic of New York, travelers coming into Cape Liberty Port already begin their trip on a relaxed note. Just seven miles from New York City and three from Newark Liberty International Airport, the cruise port is convenient for drivers and not too far away from the New Jersey Turnpike. If you don’t want to worry about parking, taking the New Jersey Transit Hudson-Bergen Light Rail directly to the port is another convenient option.

Closeness to a major airport offers another advantage for travelers – hotels. Near the airport, and consequently just miles from the Bayonne cruise port, are a large range of lodging options. Budget to high-end hotels, fitting into your travel plans, are a convenient place to spend the night before embarking on your trip.

ManhattanConsidering the port’s location, why restrict your trip to the airport, the New Jersey Turnpike, or a hotel? Spend a day experiencing Manhattan before setting sail for Canada or the Caribbean. Close to the port are notable landmarks Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Liberty Science Center. Other attractions, such as shopping on Fifth Avenue or experiencing Times Square, are a short drive or transit ride away.
