Wonderful cruise even though the weather was not the best we've ever seen.
For any of you cruisers who live within a bus trip of New York, this port is easy to take a trip from. We took a bus right into Port Authority and then walked to the Pier. We saved a lot on parking, skipped the hassle of driving in New York and got a great rate on Megabus.
Embarkation was super quick and easy. Our room was ready when we had eaten lunch. We dumped off our stuff and made our way to the hot tub out front. An awesome place to watch the trip down the Hudson from.
