Definitely hire a service to go from NYC to Bayonne. It’ll be the same as a cab or Uber since you’re crossing the state line and taking the Holland Tunnel.

It was roughly $85 for a “basic” car from Dial7, we upgraded to the Towncar since there were 4 of us and we had a fair amount of luggage for our 9-night cruise and 3 nights in NYC. That was $100 (after gratuity).

Excellent. Thank you. It’s just the wife and I so the “basic” should work just fine for us.

We are planning on walking from New York Penn Station to the hotel...I’m assuming this is a normal thing to see in NYC? I ask because I know if I saw people walking down the sidewalk in Richmond I’d definitely think it was strange haha!

I probably wouldn’t, but that’s your call. Taxi from NYC Penn Station to Times Square was around $20. A New York block and a Vegas block have a lot in common.

Folks walk in the Penn Station area of NY with luggage. I did it in January and saw many others as well. You want to exit the station onto 8th Ave, walk north to 41st, and west to 10th. If you decide on a cab, you can get one at the station going north on 8th Ave. Corners are mostly curbless, which is helpful with rolling luggage.

People walking with luggage is very normal in NYC, and in Vegas too....Looks like it is about a mile of walking, once you get out of the station. If I was doing it I would walk up 9th ave and check out all of the little restaurants that line 9th. Taxi lines can be long depending on the weather and the time of day you are arriving. Oh, if you want to go camera shopping B&H photo's super store is at 34th and 9th, right on your route . NYC blocks north and south are reasonable but the east/west blocks can be pretty long.

I've visited Yotel. Has a nice young vibe. Check to see who is in the Green Room while you're there. We enjoyed it.
One tip. If you've never used Uber or Lyft, you can download the app for each of you. Get a nice little discount.

Sure they can. I just watched hundreds of people use Uber & Lyft a couple of weeks ago - they pick up just outside the actual port pick-up/drop-off area. Just exit the building and walk directly across the street to where the cars turn right into the pick-up/drop-off area.

There have also been comments about seeing surge pricing at Cape Liberty during departure.

I guess I don’t consider 20 steps “outside port” :-)

Awesome information everyone! I’ll definitely be using this come August.

Also, checked today and we got tickets for Colbert! Well...we got tickets to wait in the line for tickets for Colbert. Email said the line opens at 3:30 and they start handing out tickets at 4:30 and go until they reach capacity. They go to the general line after the premium line is empty or 4:30 which ever comes first.

Off Adventure 3 weeks ago, June 1 at Cape Liberty. Uber back to Newark Penn Station took an hour due to traffic. Driver said it was normal work day traffic delay. Cost for 4 using Uber XL was just over $60.
