New York, NY

Manhattan Terminal
Directions and Parking Info.

port new yorkNew York City’s world-class cruise ship ports in both Manhattan & Brooklyn offer ideal facilities for cruise arrivals or departures. New York Cruise brings the most spectacular - often the fastest, biggest, and most luxurious - passenger ships. Itineraries include Bermuda, Canada, New England, Europe, the Caribbean and world cruises.

The Manhattan Cruise Terminal had its start as the New York City Passenger Ship Terminal in the 1930s, when Mayor LaGuardia built long, modern finger piers out into the Hudson along Manhattan's west side. For much of the early twentieth century, a half dozen of the world's greatest passenger ships docked side by side from Piers 84 to 94-a stretch that became known as Luxury Liner Row-starting with the Normandie in 1935, followed by the Queen Mary the following year and the Queen Elizabeth after the outbreak of World War II. During the war, thousands of GI's embarked on the latter two ships for the European theater of war-16,683 at once when the Queen Mary departed from Pier 90 in July 1943.

Kings, queens and Hollywood royalty enjoyed luxurious post-war cruises, departing from the Terminal in great numbers. Despite the advent of affordable air travel in the 1950s, cruising enjoyed a resurgence of popularity in the 1960s, with Bermuda as a popular destination. Following renovation of the piers in 1970, the Terminal has served the expanding cruise travel business, and continued its historical role of providing embarkation for all transatlantic crossings.

The Terminal was closed after the terror attack on September 11, and served for more than three months as an emergency management command center for city, state and federal agencies. In January 2002, the Queen Elizabeth 2 was the first cruise ship to return to the terminal, embarking from New York City on a 108-day world cruise.
