Sounds to me it could be zoo like! Any suggestions?
We are traveling with a small child and are trying to make this as easy as possible. The first day is always stressful and I'm trying to limit that as much as possible!

Don't "aim to get there before noon" - just do it. There can be a huge difference in the traffic line and the check in congestion - before 11 am is generally OK but after 11 can be really bad.I agree. I also want to add that it did not get less congested as it got later: we looked outside about 2pm and there was a huge line crawling into the dropoff area.
So get there about 11 and enjoy the view of the city and the Lady. Don't forget to pause a second when you see the Teardrop" 911 memorial. It is a gift from Russia to commerate the great loss suffered on 9/11/01
The first bus started boarding to take us to the ship at noon.OK I need some help now. This bus thing, how does that work when you return? What I mean is my son is dropping us off and picking us up. Will that occur at the same location? Thanks in advance.

The bus brings you from and to the parking/dropoff area to the ship's waiting area. He picks you up at the parking/dropoff area. It's a very short trip.
That all depends on how late it is running.
Typically what time does the ship get in after the 9 day if its running late? ?
We are traveling to Bayonne from Long Island, can anyone suggest the best route ? I see several ways to go ?From Queens, we take the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan, the Lincoln Tunnel to NJ and the Turnpike South.
