This may be a stupid question for all of you veterans, but how do you find the port in NYC?
I've looked on the Carnival website, I've tried Google and I can't find anything. I live in upstate NY, but have no idea how to find my way around the city. We're taking the train the Grand Central, but other than that I'm lost.
Also, our ship departs at 4 PM. How early should we arrive at the port? (if we ever find it)
