Does anyone know where the Royal Princess will dock 11/5/18 in New York. We want to do a tour to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. How far is it from the pier to Battery Park? What is the best way to get there?

Generally, Princess docks in Brooklyn, but if this is a port stop, you might end up in Manhattan.

Per the official port schedule, it is docking in Brooklyn.

As a word of caution there are occasional errors on the schedule, sometimes because it wasn't updated when a change is made.

 

I would suggest taking a taxi or Uber from the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal to Battery Park. It's not very far, under 5 miles, it's just that you have to travel from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

Royal Princess is scheduled to dock in Brooklyn.

 

You can take the MTA water taxi to Lower Manhattan Pier 11 and walk or cab to Battery Park.

If you are able to plan in advance, it is "highly recommended" that you get tickets in advance. Check out the "Statue of Liberty "website for LOTS of information.

I would not attempt to do it unless I had advance tickets in hand.
