Newbies for sure!!!

We have no idea where to start. 

We are leaving from Cape Liberty port. 

Is there a car rental place close to the port ?

Also is there a hotel within walking distance to the port. ?

Welcome to Cruiseline and your new addiction:) Hopefully someone who has sailed from Cape Liberty will be able to give specific recommendations. If you are going to do a car rental, you may be able to get a shuttle to the cruise port when you drop off your car so your hotel location may not matter as much.

Welcome to the forum. Besides asking here, a Google search will be able to give you lots of info about car rentals, shuttles and hotels near the port.

Hope you enjoy planning your cruise vacation as much as we do.

Cape Liberty is off the New Jersey Turnpike, so no, you cannot walk there. Parking is $13.99 a day. I don’t know which hotel is near there, probably something in Hoboken, Elizabeth, Bayonne, or Jersey City. Check to see if the hotels you search have a shuttle service. The port itself is in Elizabeth.


Welcome to the site & to cruising. You received all good advice above. I only sailed once out of Bayonne, NJ and I was picked up at the airport by the cruiseline and trnswported to the port. Have a wonderful cruise. Sorry that I couldn't help you out more. No, there is nothing within walking distance.

Welcome aboard. We too have an upcoming cruise from Cape Liberty (Bayonne) and have found that there are a lot of hotels close by that offer packages of a room the night before the cruise, plus breakfast, plus parking, plus shuttle to and from the terminal. There is also plenty of parking at the terminal.

....and while you are visiting my home state, make sure you enjoy our State breakfast sandwich ...Taylor ham, egg, & cheese on a roll.

So much for posting a photo
