we are coming in from Albany NY and didn't want to drive our car down. We looked into rentals, but the only way you can get a one way rental is to take it to the airport which (I've heard) is know where near the pier. Limo's are way too expensive($600 each way). does anyone know of any shuttle services that go to Albany?
Do you have a bus service (i.e. Bonanza, Peter Pan, etc.) that heads into Manhattan?! If so, it will take you to Port Authority which is a 15-20 minute walk from the pier or you can jump in a cab which will be about $3-4.
I was also thinking of bus or train to nyc, that helps me out too.
any downside to to bus/train? besides seat time
i,ll spend a couple of days before cruise there.
also looking for hotel info near bus/train/pier.
ty all for all the info on this site.
thanks for the good info. The ncl bus services doesn't go anywhere in NY state which I found very odd....The train is $140 round trip pp and we have 7 ppl ....plus we would have to take a cab (or 2) to get to the pier from grand central......We decided to rent a mini-van for the week, we got a pretty good deal. The guy says 7 ppl plus luggage will fit, can't wait to see that. I hope I don't end up having to take my suv also.... but if I have too ...oh well...
What about a Hertz or Alamo rental? Maybe you could rent one drive it down here and then drop it off at a return station if there is one near the pier and go home the same way? Its just a thought, hope it is helpful.
