About Cruising from New York
When you choose a cruise departing from NYC, you can enjoy the same amenities of a typical Florida cruise, but departing from the convenience of New York terminals. If you’re traveling from other cities in the US, you can enjoy attractions such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square or Carnegie Hall in addition to your cruise vacation.
Cruises that depart from New York are popular among native New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. Natives enjoy taking a cruise that doesn’t involve a flight to Miami, and tourists love adding New York’s best attractions to a cruise vacation.
Used as a ship departure location since the 1930s, the Manhattan Cruise Terminal went through significant modernization improvements over the past decade. Starting in 2004, $200 million went into the terminals, allowing Pier 88 and Pier 90 to accommodate larger cruise ships. An additional $4 million in Passenger Boarding Bridges went toward accommodations for newer and larger ships. The result is one of the more modern cruise facilities in the U.S., with adjustable gangways, expanded pier aprons, and separate arrival and departure points for decreasing congestion and improving efficiency.
