Several Caribbean cruises from New York are available to people living in the Tri-State area and even to people who are willing to fly into New York from overseas or elsewhere.
Cruise ship vacations from the Big Apple sail out of the Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
The cruise terminal in Manhattan is ideally located where it is accessible from three major international airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, La Guardia International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.
The Manhattan Cruise Port Address is: 711 12th Avenue (between 46th and 54th Streets), New York, NY 10019.

The most economical means of transportation from either one of the three airports is by taxi.
Note that in addition to the metered fare, you will be responsible for any toll paid along the way plus tips.
La Guardia will give you the shortest ride and the lowest fare.
In addition to the taxi, your family has several other options to choose from: shuttle rides, limo rentals, or public transportation.
Public transportation is the least expensive, but the most inconvenient.
However, if you have time to burn and would love to see a little of New York City, then you should consider this option. Someone at the airport will direct you how to catch the bus.
