Bayonne Cruise Terminal

Cape Liberty cruise terminal is located at the Peninsula in the Upper Bay of New York Harbor. Opened in 2004, the port was formerly the Bayonne Navy base facility. The terminal offers check-in desks, customs and immigration, a snackbar and restrooms. The cruise terminal is more than 1/2 mile from the cruise ship dock, so passengers are taken by shuttle buses from the cruise terminal to their ship. Adjacent to the dock is the 9/11 Tear Drop Memorial. Convenient passenger car parking is sited nearby to the cruise terminal.

The terminal has 1 cruise ship berth.

Cape Liberty Cruise Terminal is home to Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean ships.
