Flying into Newark airport for a cruise starting at Cape Liberty cruise port. I am staying one night prior and after the cruise. Hotel suggestions please. Would like to have hotel including airport shuttle and / or hotel to cruise shuttle. Also, would like to walk/run from hotel to cruise port.
I had the same question, I am on the Explorer next Feb 3,2008 and wanted to spend two days before the cruise. At first I was going to go through the cruise line but the hotels they use are about one hour away from the port and we are taking the train down and would have had to take a one hour taxi ride just to get to the hotel! What I did is book the Hilton at Penn station which is attatched directly to the Amtrack station in Bayonn,NJ. Also, this hotel is only about 2-3 miles from the airport which is convenient and only a couple of miles away from the cape liberty port! That was my solution. I paid 139 a night for the hotel which isnt bad considering how close it is to NYC-only a few miles. Hope this info helps
