I have done Manhattan Cruise Terminal To JFK & taxi's were a nightmare, so I strongly recommend you book particularly the return journey back to JFK. We use Supershuttle, there are others, which is a shared ride 10 seater van, which means they may have a drop off on route, but you pay a fixed price per person. They have 'fixed journeys on their website so you email for a quote, they take a credit card details for deposit but this is only in case of no show. You pay the driver in cash. JFK to Newark Airport which is close to Cape Liberty was $19 per person just over a year ago, so expect slightly more.
Apologies! Ignore my last sentence!! The $19 was from airport to Manhattan......One glass of wine too many.....Wilba.
There is the PATH train from Bayonne to JFK but I do believe this is about 3 miles from the port so this does mean a change of train from the cruise terminal. A cab will probably cost about $100 ship to airport & a taxivan for a larger group about $180/200......Wilba.
Hi Wilba, thanks for the info. as we are a family of 2 adults & 2 children and will no doubt have a decent amount of luggage in tow I don't fancy the train. I would rather pay the extra and have the comfort of going door to door. Is it best to book a transfer in advance or will there be plenty of cabs at the port able to take a family of 4 plus bags, what are your thoughts?
