Sailing on RCCL Explorer on 5/28 out of New Jersey. We'll plan to fly in the night before, so looking for inexpensive hotel and transportation to the pier and then back to the airport. Which airport is closest (JFK, LGA, EWR) and what are the best options for a place to stay and how to get there?? I;ve read some posts about taking trains, subways, taxis and provate cars but can't seem to find the 'right' answer. I'd rather spend the money onboard than at a nicer hotel, so just looking for the basics.

We're booked on the June 16th cruise on Explorer.
We are driving in from Virginia and will be spending the night here:
Where are you coming in from? Have you thought about driving in?
One primary reason we're staying here is because of their "park and cruise" deal. For $175, you get to leave your car on hotel grounds for the duration of the cruise, and they provide free shuttle service to and from the pier when you return.
We're coming up a day early to be sure we won't be late for the cruise, and also to do some sightseeing and then relax the night before.
Not a bad deal when you consider the parking rates on the pier!

Hey we are booking this same cruise for May 28th and I need the same info. We are flying into LGA because it was $100 cheaper per person than flying into EWR. Need to find a hotel because we're flying in on the 27th.
