New York is a great city with helpful people. Yes, it's crowded and can be expensive, but there's plenty to do on a budget and the people are always ready to help with directions or good advice on the best places to eat.

Embarkation was congested yet semi-organized, which took about ~1hr from the entering the marina to getting on the ship. Many hurdles to jump through, and towing luggage while doing it isn’t too fun and I can’t imagine doing this regularly/monthly. Disembarkation was initially a disaster since the ship docked many hours earlier than expected, and some rocket scientist in charge thought it was a good idea to call our tag color 1hr before it should have. You should have seen the madness that was the buffet and elevators by then (8AM). Absolutely NUTS. And the staff was no longer as pleasant, but go figure special thanks to rocket scientist. Then once we managed to squeeze into an elevator, it was ~20min total time off the ship and passing customs. Read Less

The NYC Cruise Terminal is the most difficult of the 3 terminals serving NY/NJ to use. It is always congested. Driving yourself is not recommended unless you are use to handling Manhattan traffic. Parking is expensive and limited. Personnel are not the most pleasant to deal with. And on our most recent cruise, the embarkation process was painfully long. Read Less

Out of date for getting people checked in. Even though they ask you when you will arrive to make it better it doesn’t work. Even with my 80 year old Mother using a cane and going near the front of this huge line we still waited 20 ... Read More
Out of date for getting people checked in. Even though they ask you when you will arrive to make it better it doesn’t work.

I was a through passenger so got to spend the day doing what I wanted to in New York and was able to get back on at 3:00 after all of the other passengers had boarded so I didn't have a common experience at the embarkation.

Did not take an excursion. Took the free ferry provided by NCL to St. George. It was great.

It was fine. Things were a bit crazy when we first got to the port, but that happens at any port.

New York is fabulous! We had a chance to finally visit the 9/11 Memorial. Absolutely breath-taking and so well done. A place to truly reflect on these events. We took a tour with Family in New York. I would highly recommend them as they personalize the tour to exactly what you want to see. Our guide met us at our hotel, escorted us throughout the day, and then brought us back to our hotel. All day he shared insights and information with us and even changed plans on a dime when we changed our minds. You get to see the city in different way when you walk and ride the subway - so much fun! Read Less

Nassau was great! Was first time there. Walked around and enjoyed local spots. Port canavral was terrible. Got off the ship and right back on. Nothing at the port itself not even local shops.

We walked from pier 88 down to the just-opened Hudson Yards and the Vessel. This part of Manhattan is a *lot* more tourist friendly than just 10 years ago, much less 30!
