Industrial disgusting looking of a port with broken up roads to and from, poor traffic control, congestion and inefficient travel. Need to give more time getting to and from this mess of a port relative to the quality ports out there. I do not give it terrible because once you get inside things were fine - just the mess outside / poor roads / poor road management makes this port terrible to me. Read Less

Getting on and off the ship was very organized. Cruise port was conveniently located and spacious.$20 a day to park your car was a bit excessive.

Nice clean operation, the parking structure looks like a good deal, I had a ride in and out this trip. Security screening was smooth and the cruise people kept things moving along. Squeezing almost 6000 people on to a big boat, after they had just unloaded another 6000 people that morning, everyone was polite and efficient. Read Less

We really didn't spend any time in Bayonne, but embarkation was quick and very easy. We did spend 2 days in New York City pre-cruise and had a wonderful time.

Leave for the ship early. Traffic is very slow due to an inefficient drop off area. Two lane road that may be backed up for miles.

This is where we boarded the ship, it was a nice place to leave from because they had a parking garage you could park in. It was very large so we didn't have a hard time finding a spot, plus it was a safe place to leave the car while we were gone and it wasn't expensive to park. We didn't have the worry about the car at all and we weren't far away so it was a nice feature that we could just drive to where we were boarding the ship, rather than needing to get a ride.

We flew in the day before and stayed in Elizabeth, NJ where we ate dinner out but then stayed the rest of the night in our hotel room. We Ubered to the port the next day.

Very slick..... Dropped off luggage at the curb... No line in the terminal. An easy fast check in then straight onto the ship.

Since we lived in the area in the past we know the area, and there is really nothing to do unless you go to NYC to do a tour or board a ferry to the Statue of Liberty.

The staff was nasty and short with us... not a great start to a family vacation! In addition, it took 2+ hours to get to the drop-off point due to massive backups on the single access road to the boat. We were told that the baggage ... Read More
The staff was nasty and short with us... not a great start to a family vacation! In addition, it took 2+ hours to get to the drop-off point due to massive backups on the single access road to the boat. We were told that the baggage handlers were over 60 employees short due to loadin other commercial freighters on that pier. Read Less

Bayonne was a nightmare for embarkation, very long wait to get into the terminal. We arrived at about 12:45 to about a mile out of the terminal and it took about an hour just to get to the terminal on the single access road. Horrible experience. Once at the terminal the process was fine. Read Less

Parking in Cape Liberty was easy. 7 days for $140 and only 100 steps to the ship

Terrible area, not safe to walk around, the only option for pre/post cruise activities is to go into NYC.
