If you're looking for hints regarding arriving and leaving Manhattan, check the Ports of Call forum. You should be able to find a plethora of information as to best places to stay, best way to get from any of the area airports to either a hotel or the cruise terminal, etc.
I'd help you out but we're taking our first cruise out of NYC in August. We're planning on flying into JFK, taking AirTrain to Jamaica Queens, then either hop on the LIRR or the "E" train into Manhattan. Not sure where we're staying though - was hoping to try the Courtyard Marriott over by Bryant Park (one of our favorite hotels), but the prices are horrible!
Cary and Susan
Bawston Boy + Jersey Girl (plus our cruising mascots Jumbo the Elephant and Clark the Minion) = match made in heaven!
I admit that we're cruise junkies!!!!
Way too many cruises to count:
19 on Carnival
7 on Norwegian
5 on Royal Caribbean
