Undoubtedly Manhattan is the place to stay 20 minutes or so from Cape Liberty. All of the sights, Empire State, Central Park, Times Square, Grand Central Station, Chinatown, Ground Zero & a 10 minute walk from there to Staten Island Ferry is the best 'free ride' passing close to Ellis Island & The Statue of Liberty. Once your in Manhattan the the Subway (Tube/Underground) is a cheap & easy way to get around..Wilba.

Hotels in New York are notoriously expensive. We stay in a 'town' hotel, no concierge or restaurants, just good clean rooms in central Manhattan. Breakfast bars & eateries to suit all tastes & pockets a few steps in every direction & a subway entrance outside the front door. The Cosmopolitan Hotel, West Broadway, google it, just two blocks north of Ground Zero.......Wilba.

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good.
