JFK to Manhattan is a fixed flat rate cab fare of $45.00 plus any tolls. (plus tip of course). Cape Liberty cruise terminal is in New Jersey, and this presents a problem as cabs from NY state are not allowed to pickup in New Jersey (it is like a cab from Essex not allowed to pick up a passenger in Suffolk) - so the cab will take you there but he will charge you for having to return to the city empty. It is approx $98 from mid-Manhattan to Cape Liberty using a limo service. You can find one on the internet.

We paid roughly $60 from JFK to Manhatten and approximately $55 plus $10 tip to take us from our New York hotel to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. This was March 2008 so prices may have increased slightly. However all taxi prices are published and regulated but do ask before getting in one (please ensure that this is a bona fide yellow cab) You can also pre book your transfer by limo via the UK if you place a search for airport transfers for the USA. Hope this helps.

Have you thought of 'Blue Shuttle', (Google it). We have used them from /to Liberty/Manhattan Hotels/JFK. They use 12 seater vans & the cheapest way is a 'shared ride' which means they may have drop offs on the way. We have used this service & it works out quite well. It's about $20 per person a ride.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
