The Taxis are expensive in the City as well as Jersey. I'm sure getting from Newark airport to the City by taxi will cost alot more then $50.

What time are you flying in on Friday? will you have the whole day to explore? Sat. you will have the whole day then Sun. morning it's to the ship.

Staying in the Times Square area is not cheap however very convenient. Hotels range $275.00 to $450.+ per night. Newark airport area has some good hotels too at half the price...Hampton Inn, Hilton and Springfield Inn come to mind.

Getting into the city from a Newark airport hotel the cheapest way would be going to Newark Penn Station and taking the NJ Transit train. You can also get into the City by Bus or Train right from Newark Airport and takes you right into NY Port Authority bus terminal or NY Penn Station. I hear it's about $15.00 pp each way.

Many people also visiting NY stay at a Jersey hotel and bus it into the city...for example a hotel in Secaucus, NJ will cost double less then the City and it's only a 10 minute bus ride into the city and cost a couple of dollars.

You may also want to look into Shuttles from the airport going into the City and also to Port of Bayonne for your cruise on Sunday. Remember though many times shuttles wait and wait until the van fills up before it leaves and can make other stops.

Have a great pre cruise stay in the Big Apple (the City that never sleeps)
