Manhattan Cruise Terminal New York Reviews
Sailing from New York City Sep 05, 2010
The Manhattan Cruise Terminal is the passenger embarkation and disembarkation point for cruise ships docking in New York City. The terminal consists of three Piers--Piers 88, 90, and 92--with six berths. The piers were built in the 1930s as the New York City Passenger Ship Terminal to serve as a centralized facility for ocean liners arriving at New York.
The piers were renovated in 2004 and continue to serve large passenger ships today. If you are embarking on a cruise from New York (or are on a cruise with New York as a port of call) you will probably use the Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
Each pier has three levels. Departures are on the middle level. There is curbside vehicle and taxi dropoff for passengers. Inside is passenger check-in and boarding. The bottom level has baggage claim for arriving passengers and U.S. Customs. Taxis and passenger pick-up are outside. The top (roof) level is long-term parking. The piers do not have any amenities other than restrooms. (No food or refreshments. It's assumed you'll be on your ship for meals.)
Note: if you plan to use long-term parking, proceed directly to the upper level ramp. Attendants will direct you to the correct parking area for your ship. (Long-term parking is $30 per day.)
