Bayonne is an ugly port, however, it's very convenient if you're driving. It's much better than New York City. The lines move much faster.

The port at Cape Liberty was easily accessible from the NJ turnpike, however construction in the area made the printed and GPS directions a challenge. Baggage drop off and parking were very convenient. Boarding was surprisingly quick for 4,000+ cruisers! Read Less

2 hour drive from our house, it was chilly and rainy leaving from here, but the weather improved for the rest of the cruise.

The parking garage was safe, easy to get in and out of. Reasonable price $100 for a 5 day cruise. The building was easy to get to and board the ship

Its a challenge getting to the cruise terminal, but that's just northern NJ traffic and roads. The new parking garage is great. $20 per day but worth it.

The drive to the Port Liberty Cruise Terminal from anywhere in northern New Jersey is quick and straight forward on I-78 East. Be advised that for 2017 there is considerable, ongoing construction on the overpass immediately after the Exit 14A toll booth, so travelers are encouraged to leave some extra travel time. Although the area might look a little seedy, we have taken several cruises from here and so far have not encountered any problems with personal safety or leaving the car for a week. You will surrounded by 1000s of your fellow passengers, and police presence is noticeable. The new parking garage immediately adjacent to the Cruise Ship Terminal is now open and is extremely convenient. To give you an idea of capacity, we arrived at the pier about 11AM and parked on Level 4. There was an entire Level 5 above us that was still empty. Much of the volume on the lower levels was probably used by guests of the Anthem of the Seas, which shares this port. If the garage becomes full, there is an outside lot as well, directly across the road from both the Parking Garage and the Terminal. Parking in the garage at the pier is $20/day, payable when you exit at the end of your cruise. (Note, this is a change since the parking garage was built. Prior to this, you had to pay in advance.) If you search the internet you will find slightly cheaper parking lots in the area which offer free shuttle service to/from the pier. For the extra few dollars, however, my recommendation is to park at the pier. The convenience is well worth it, especially when you return from your voyage, as the walk from the Terminal to either the parking garage or the parking lot is less than 100 yards… no waiting for a shuttle. Payment is accepted in cash or credit card. The payment machines are located outside of the garage, on the terminal side of the building. You pay and get a ticket stub and a receipt. The ticket stub is then inserted into a second device as you drive out of the garage, to raise the gate and permit you to exit. The longest delay we experienced at the terminal was the TSA screening. I do not think this was the norm, but there was a group in front of us who were travelling and none of them had a US Passport, so there was a considerable delay in clearing them. Read Less

Easy embarcation and disembarcation. Strongly advise getting a porter for disembarcation of you have some luggage, they take you to a shorter line for customs.

Our car dropped us off, luggage went one way, we went into their new building for a seamless transition on board. Completing the paperwork beforehand, online, saves a ton of time.
