Cruising from Newark, NJ to Quebec, Canada Sept 6, 2019

Recommended Posts

We will spend a couple of nights in a hotel before our cruise departing 9/6/19 so we can visit the 9/11 Memorial.  Any suggestions on a hotel and how to get from Newark to the memorial?  Also, suggestions how to get to the cruise port from our hotel?  We are Diamond on RCCL and are cruising on the Adventure of the Seas.  Suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

You could stay either at Newark Airport area or in downtown Newark (if you're hooked on staying in Newark). The Hilton Newark Penn Station would make it very easy to catch a PATH train to the WTC memorial-- its connected to the station via walkway. Theres frankly not much to do in terms of walking around at either the downtown and especially airport hotel locations in Newark. 


For pretty close to the same rate you'd get in Newark you could stay in downtown Manhattan (theres everything from a Four Seasons to budget options-- hotels like the Doubletree or Marriott can be in the $100-170 range fairly consistently that time of year). This would put you in town and not only walking distance to the WTC, but a much better place to walk around to various restaurants/bars etc or other sightseeing. 


An UberX from Newark downtown to Cape Liberty cruise port is about a half hour and $21. Same UberX from downtown Manhattan to Cape Liberty is a bit more-- about $75 estimated, but you get alot more time in NYC.

If you stay at the Embassy Suites, Courtyard Marriott, Hyatt Place in Secaucus; there is a bus stop to NYC right across the street.  The hotel can give you all the info.  Hope this helps.  You could then take taxi, uber/lyft to cruise port when you leave.  From Secaucus to Cape Liberty; maybe 20 to 30min.
