Located on the New York Harbour in Bayonne, Cape Liberty Cruise Port is just seven miles from the city that never sleeps, New York. So, it goes without saying, there are many fascinating places within easy reach. There's Liberty Island, home to Lady Liberty herself. Another must see is Ellis Island, which has a museum dedicated to the history of immigration and Bayonne Bridge, which you'll find hard to miss. The Bayonne Bridge links New Jersey with Staten Island and is one of the longest steel arch bridges in the world. The birthplace of crooner Frank Sinatra is also nearby in Hoboken. Since New York City is just a cab drive away, you must pay it a visit. You can find anything and everything here, from the world's finest designers on Fifth Avenue to iconic stores throughout the city. There are many museums here too, including the Ground Zero Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And make sure you save yourself enough time to have a stroll in Central Park.
One of the most famous retailers in the world, Saks Fifth Avenue has been dressing the well-heeled since 1902. If you love department stores, then be sure to experience the magic of Macy's whilst you're in New York. It's a shopper's paradise. Tiffany's is another 'must-visit'. This iconic jewellery store is located at 37 Wall Street. And, if you're with child (or you're a big kid yourself) check out Toys 'R' Us. Situated in Times Square, it's the largest toy store in the world.
The local currency is the US dollar. Bayonne is 6 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT -6).
