New York City Cruise Port Guide: Manhattan Cruise Terminal Parking in New Jersey


The Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York
City is the starting point for over 150 cruises per year. The terminal is located about half a mile
from the Midtown West 39th Street Ferry Terminal, which provides the ability to park at Port
Imperial in New Jersey. Depending on the length of your cruise and
the number of travelers in your party, parking at Port Imperial can provide significant savings. At the time this video was made, parking at
the Manhattan Cruise Terminal cost $40 per night with a maximum charge of $400. The cost of parking at Port Imperial in New
Jersey was half of that rate at $20 per night, with no maximum charge. There are two indoor parking garages at Port
Imperial and both are located within easy walking distance of the Port Imperial / Weehawken
ferry terminal. When you’re parking, be sure to avoid the
“Monthly Access Only” garage and look instead for the “Garage Entrance”
signs that point the way to Public Garage 1, which is located around the corner from
the ferry terminal or Public Garage 2, which is located a bit
further down the road from the terminal. We’ve always arrived on weekends and have
had no problem finding a parking space. The parking garages may be more busy on weekdays. Be sure to take your parking ticket with you
so you can pay for the parking in the ferry terminal or near the parking garage elevators. In addition to parking at Port Imperial / Weehawken,
there are a good number of restaurants and other stores located in the area. Helpful signage and maps provide a list of
the businesses nearby, including a dashed circle that indicates everything available
within a 5-minute walk. The ferry from the Port Imperial / Weehawken
terminal to the Midtown West 39th Street terminal runs seven days a week from 6 am to midnight
on weekdays and 8 am to midnight on weekends. The ferry runs every 10 to 20 minutes, depending
on the time of day. We’ve linked to the New York Waterway’s online schedule in the
description below. At the time this video was made, the one-way
fare was $9 for passengers 12 and older, $6 for passengers 6 to 11, $8.25 for seniors,
and children 5 and under were free. You can purchase tickets at the ticket windows
or at a self-service machine, if you’re using a Hudson Go Pass. There are multiple ferry routes from Port
Imperial, so be sure to purchase tickets to “Midtown / West 39th Street.” The Port Imperial / Weehawken ferry terminal
is located almost directly across the Hudson River from the Manhattan Cruise Terminal and
you’ll likely be able to see your cruise ship already at the dock if you arrive on
your embarkation day. Inside the terminal, an Information Desk is
available if you need assistance and multiple monitors display the upcoming
departure times and boarding location for the Midtown West 39th Street ferry and the
terminal’s other ferries. Public restrooms are available inside the
ferry terminal as well as a small cafe that has snacks, coffee,
and more available for purchase and a small restaurant. To board the ferry, head to the dock area
a bit before the scheduled departure time. The ferry will arrive and the passengers onboard
will disembark. After most of the passengers have disembarked,
the ferry’s operators will begin collecting tickets and allow new passengers to board. Seating aboard the ferry is first come, first
served and the travel time to the Midtown West 39th Street ferry dock is approximately
eight minutes. After arriving at the Midtown West 39th Street
ferry dock, walk through the terminal building and turn left and walk along the path to the
Manhattan Cruise Terminal. The walk to the cruise terminal is approximately
four-tenths of a mile along the paved Hudson River Greenway. The path is not covered and is subject to
inclement weather. There’s plenty of sidewalk and pathway available
to get to the terminal, which is located just past the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum
that you can find by looking for the large aircraft carrier.
