We've sailed from Bayonne twice, Brooklyn once and Manhattan once.
Bayonne is safe, easy and convenient to drive to.
Brooklyn is safe, super easy to park and just has a little more traffic to deal with, but it is a really nice set up.
Manhatten, take public transportation or car service.
The benefit of driving is it is so worth the expense of being able to hop off the ship, pull your car around and pile all your luggage, booze and souvenirs in the trunk! No hauling stuff here, there and everywhere!
We are sailing from Bayonne on 12 night Holiday cruise 12/23/07 to Southern Caribbean. RCL finally decided to sail year round, and we jumped on their 1st Holiday cruise. This 12 nighter covers both holidays, Christmas and New Year's (not Hannukah that year, but possibly the following year 2008)
We've got a group going, so if you'd like to join us or find out more info about this cruise or itinerary, visit
