Default Need Insight on Bayonne NJ port

Can anyone give me some info on what to expect from the Bayonne port?

I am hiring a van to pick us up at the port and take us into NYC for a post-cruise few days.

Just wondering if the port is chaotic like NY. I wouldn't think so since there is only RCL and Celebrity.

Any info would be appreciated.

I haven;t been there but I hear it is not chaotic at all. Only one ship in at a time. They say the process is very smooth.

The Bayonne port is in the midst of the old abandoned Military Ocean Transport terminal. Many of the low old style (WWII) buildings are empty and decaying. Some are used for warehousing. It's a little hectic right in front of the terminal building while loading and unloading, but other than that, it's pretty wide open and empty.

At some point in the future, a cruise terminal will be built and the area will experience a rejuvenation. But, it is far less of a hassle than coming into New York itself. From Bayonne to mid-town is about a 15 to 20 minute ride. In typical NY rush hour - add another 2 hours for traffic.
