Default Cape Liberty into Manhattan for the day

Easiest way to get into town from Cape Liberty for a one day stay between B2B cruises? Approximate cost of taxi/car service.and any recommendations.. Train service worth the effort involved ?

A car service will run you as much as $80 each way! The best thing to do is yo find the closest PATH train (Grove Street) which is a subway that will take you right into Manhattan. There are other PATH trainsm but some only take you to the Wall Street Area while others will take you more uptown.

Here is a great link to help: Royal Caribbean International Cruise Information - bayonne cruise - cruise in bayonne - cruise information - bayonne port

Question Cape Liberty - Bayonne, NJ from Manhattan

The official line from Royal/Celebrity for getting to the port via public transit is:

By Train:
Take the PATH train from Manhattan to Jersey City or Hoboken. Outside the PATH Station, take the NJ Hudson-Bergen Light Rail train to Bayonne. Get off at the 34th Street Station in Bayonne. You are now directly across Route 440 from the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, which includes the Cape Liberty Cruise Port.

Call one of the three Bayonne cab companies to drive you to the cruise port, which is about two miles east of the Light Rail line.
Two trains and a cab on top of whatever it takes to get to Penn Station seems like a lot of work to me (lazy). Is there a better option? I was thinking maybe NJT to EWR and then take a cab from there. How workable is this?

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
