New York - Red Hook to Manhattan transportation?
Will be arriving at new Red Hook Terminal in Brooklyn and staying a few days post cruise in Manhattan. So far no info on transportation options unless you book cruise package. Taxi? shuttle? hotel bus? car service?
Would appreciate any info.

We arrived at Grand Central and took a taxi to the port. It took about 10 minutes (on a Sunday about 1:00 PM); cost $12 including tip. Enjoy!

thanks for your response, but I think you mis-read my post. Am looking for transportation options FROM the port in Brooklyn to Mid-Town Manhattan. I belive you are referring to the Manhattan port.

Hi Darcy,

Anne Campbell (Cruisemates editor in chief) posted this about Red Hook transportation to Manhattan:

If you are sailing Cunard, there should be a ground transportation request form in your information packet. (Pre cruise document information). I am not sure about Princess but I would think they would have something similar since Princess and Cunard recently merged back office operations.

When is your cruise? Mine is July 3rd. If you are sailing after me, I will be happy to provide more detailed information.

I hope this helps.
