New York City’s world-class cruise ship ports in both Brooklyn and Manhattan offer ideal facilities for cruise arrivals or departures. NYCruise brings the most spectacular—often the biggest and most luxurious passenger ships to our terminals in Red Hook, Brooklyn and the West Side of Manhattan from European origins or distant ports in the Americas.

Over 50 million dollars was spent building the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal and over 200 million dollars was spent renovating the Manhattan Cruise Terminal at Pier 88 and Pier 90. A key enhancement includes the redesign of Pier 88 passenger flow, with travelers now embarking only through the main level, and disembarking only through the ground level. The Manhattan Cruise Terminal is constantly being upgraded and improved.

In 2018, Brooklyn served 143,030 passengers with 28 ship calls and Manhattan served 1,154,987 passengers with 207 ship calls. With increasing numbers of ship calls and enhancements in easing the passenger flow to ground transportation, the terminals are opening eyes as travelers disembark for their visit to New York City.
