New York Cruising *One of the TOP 5 Cruise Ports in the U.S.”
It began in the 1930’s at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal – originally called, “Passenger Ship Terminal” and continues to remain the primary cruise port for trans-Atlantic crossings from Europe. Cunard, Princess, Norwegian & Carnival cruise lines name just a few lines that sail out of New York. From Pier 84 – Pier 94, Ocean Liners came and docked. The stretch of piers became known as “Luxury Liner Row”.
SS Normandie called upon NY in 1935, followed by Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. In the 1960’s the resurgence of cruising and popularity of Bermuda became evident. In the 70’s the Manhattan Cruise Terminal underwent renovations leading it to continue on its historical role as a passenger cruise terminal.
Not only do cruise ships sail out of NYC, making it very convenient for north east travelers, but there are many cruise lines that call on the city of Manhattan as well– NY is an integral port of call for more than a dozen cruise lines. Area attractions in Manhattan draw many. From world-class cuisine to food trucks (street vendors) passengers will find some of the finest fare in the world in NY. Looking for culture and Night life, look no further. Are you a Museum aficionado, you will find many to suit your eye!
