Default QM2&Legend leaving 5/7-traffic problem?

We are leaving on Carnival Legend the same day as Queen Mary 2 which is 5/7. Carnival will leave port at 4pm and QM2 at 5:45. Just wondering what kind of traffic delay we will encounter getting to the pier?

We are leaving that day too on the Legend. Staying the night before at a hotel so we can get there early.

New York newspaper did a story on this Sunday. They are actually recommending a later arrival to avoid being caught up in still disembarking passengers.
Let me suggest from practical experience last year. Stay off the south bound West Side highway, stay off the west bound side streets in the 50's.
I would actually suggest walking the last block or two if you can. I truly wished I did not have my car with me as I was stuck fighting the traffic for 2 and a half hours while folks in cabs and car services simply got out and walked.
Consider approaching from the north bound side of West Street (as if you were coming from Lincoln or Holland tunnels.
Once on the ship it will be all behind you so relax and enjoy.
