Cape liberty, nj cruise port facilities and location.

Cruises from New York City with Celebrity Cruises depart from the recently-renovated Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey, a sleek and modern new cruise terminal that makes check-in and embarkation as smooth and enjoyable as possible. The Cape Liberty Cruise Port is conveniently located in close proximity to Newark Airport and is less than an hour’s drive from New York City.

Top Sights & Attractions to See Before Cruises From NYC

Empire state building.

The Empire State Building has been memorialized in movies and TV for decades, and a trip to the top is something you should experience for yourself at least once. Made up of 102 floors and coming in at over 1,200 feet tall, the observation deck offers an unbeatable view of the Manhattan skyline.

Ellis Island

Take a day trip to Ellis Island to discover the history of immigration in America during pivotal points in U.S. history. Spend the afternoon looking at historic immigration materials in the museum and learning about how the United States opened its doors to the world.

Brooklyn Bridge

Built in the late 1800s to connect Brooklyn and Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge is a marvel of human achievement and an architectural delight. A walk or ride over the Brooklyn Bridge, whether you’re in a taxi or on your own two feet, is pretty spectacular.

Times Square

It wouldn’t be a trip to NYC without a stop at the overwhelming, world-famous Times Square, a stretch of several blocks of bright, flashing billboards and crowds clamoring for neon photos.

Top Things to Do in New York

Walk in central park.

Central Park is one of the largest parks in a metropolitan area. Comprised of over a mile of green space and walking trails, it offers a killer view of lower Manhattan from certain vistas. When you’re craving some time in nature in the middle of this loud, humming city, head to Central Park for a walk, a picnic, or just to people-watch.

Go to a Broadway Show

Theater lovers will plan an entire trip to New York around a single Broadway musical or play. If you can snag tickets, you’ll be front and center to some of the biggest performers and talents in the world, whether you’re seeing an established, multi-run show or something artsy off-Broadway.

Pay Respects at the 9/11 Memorial

Built to honor the lives lost as a result of the tragic attacks on September 11, 2001, the 9/11 Memorial is a harrowing must-see experience during a trip to New York. It relays the significance of the terrorist attacks not only on the New York community, but the United States as a whole.

Where should I eat in New York?

New York offers nearly every type of cuisine in the world, whether you’re craving an authentic New York slice of pizza or prefer to stop at one of the halal food trucks scattered throughout Manhattan. There are dozens of restaurants along every block. Famous spots include Peter Luger Steakhouse in Williamsburg, Katz Delicatessen, Gramercy Tavern, and Grand Central Oyster Bar.

What’s the culture and history of New York?

Native American groups have lived in the area now known as New York for thousands of years, and European settlement of the area didn’t begin until the 15th century. In the 1600s, the Dutch West India Company began a colony called “New Amsterdam” and expanded their living quarters into what we know now as Manhattan. The local population boomed, and the New Amsterdam area became known as a trade hub between the Dutch, Europeans, and the New World. By the mid-1600s, the British took control and kept it until after the Revolutionary War. During the 19th century, the melting pot of New York that the city is now famous for began to take shape as Ellis Island welcomed millions of immigrants from Ireland, Italy, and Germany. People from around the world settled throughout the five boroughs. Today, New York symbolizes the promise of an America with open arms for all types of people, and New York’s food, attractions, and cultural institutions celebrate that diversity. 

Where can I go shopping near the cruise port?

For a glimpse of New York’s famous shopping scene, find a nearby subway station and head to Fifth Avenue or Madison Avenue, where you’ll find every luxury brand under the sun. SoHo boasts many of the biggest names and rising brands in fashion and design, while the windows of famous department stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdales attract thousands of eyes during the an. Of course, souvenir shacks with memorabilia of the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and the Chrysler Building aren’t hard to find either.

How can I get around New York City?

Getting to New York City from the cruise terminal is easy. There are several options including hailing a taxi, taking a train on the PATH Rapid Transit System train to Manhattan, or boarding a bus that will drop you off in the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Once you are there, the options for getting around the five boroughs are plentiful, as New York has one of the most comprehensive public transit systems in the U.S. The subway operates 24/7. If you’ve decided to stick to landmarks in a particular neighborhood, you’ll be able to get around on foot. If you’re tired, you can hail one of the city’s famous yellow cabs. Rideshares also operate here. 

What are the local currency & tipping customs?

The U.S. Dollar (USD) is the official currency of NYC, and you’ll find ATMs are widespread. Most major credit cards are accepted as well, but it’s helpful to carry cash with you when you shop at bodegas. Many bars have a minimum purchase amount for credit or debit card use.

Seabourn Quest differs from the line's newer ships in terms of accommodations, as it offers some Ocean View Suites with porthole windows instead of verandas. However, all cabins still come equipped with amenities like flat-screen TVs, designer toiletries, personalized stationery, Egyptian cotton linens and in-suite bars stocked with your preferred refreshments.

Outside your suite, you can enjoy a range of pursuits, such as spa and salon treatments, free fitness classes, a nine-hole putting green and two swimming pools. Additionally, Seabourn Quest offers complimentary water sports equipment rentals at its Watersports Marina in select destinations.

Similar to its sister ships,  Seven Seas Navigator  and  Seven Seas Voyager , the 696-passenger Seven Seas Mariner makes service a top priority with 459 crew members on board.

U.S. News Insider Tip : Consider booking a session with Silversea's newest spa concept, Otium, which debuted on Silver Dawn. Beyond the ancient Rome-inspired treatments available in Otium, the experience continues in-suite, with butler-drawn candlelit baths including a glass of Champagne and a house-made macaron waiting on a tub tray. Classical music plays soothingly in the background. – Janice Wald Henderson, Contributor

Tourists and residents alike can take advantage of the many cruises that depart from New York City, offering easy access to warm weather getaways, family vacations, expeditions, and more. After all, nothing screams adventure like sailing away from the Big Apple with the Statue of Liberty and iconic city skyline in your wake.

Plus, New York is home to the oldest cruise terminal in the United States. Nowadays, there are two hubs, one in Manhattan and another in Brooklyn . An additional cruise terminal, in Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, also serves the area.

The Manhattan cruise terminal is located on the edge of Midtown, making it easy to spend port days or pre-cruise time exploring Times Square, Central Park, or the Theater District. The Empire State Building and iconic department stores including Macy’s Herald Square are also within walking distance of the Manhattan cruise port.

The Brooklyn cruise port is a 15-minute drive from Brooklyn Bridge Park , which offers some of the best views of downtown Manhattan. If you're looking to stretch your legs, the walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan offers just over a mile of picturesque city viewpoints. While Bayonne, New Jersey may not be a huge tourist destination, sailing from Cape Liberty does provide a postcard-perfect look at the Manhattan skyline and its famous neighbor, the Statue of Liberty.

Viking offers ocean cruises between New York and Reykjavik in June, August, and September.

This Viking itinerary makes two stops in Canada and two stops in Greenland before circumnavigating Iceland, beginning with the remote Westfjords and ending in Reykjavik. Sail the same seas as legendary Norse explorer Leif Erikkson (on a far more luxurious Viking ship) while learning about the American Revolution and Canadian exploration from the cruise line’s resident historian. Lounge by the pool, visit the spa, or look out for whales and puffins. Viking has several nearly identical ocean ships sailing this itinerary from New York—each can accommodate a maximum of 930 passengers, allowing them to dock in ports larger ships cannot access.

It’s impossible to get bored on the MSC Meraviglia .

Norwegian Prima is one of the best cruises for solo travelers departing from New York City.

On most cruise lines, traveling solo means paying up to double the fare for a cabin to yourself, but not on the Norwegian Prima . This ship has a special area set aside for solo travelers with 73 studio suites and a private common area for mingling. Each of the Norwegian Prima’s 95-square-foot studio suites comes with a full-size bed, en suite bathroom, and a vanity table. And while space inside these studios are tight, you’ll likely be so busy go-karting, lounging by the pool, taking in shows, and relaxing in hot tubs, it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself spending much time in the room beyond catching some shut eye. The Norwegian Prima sails to Bermuda and the Caribbean from New York and offers a transatlantic repositioning itinerary.Best transatlantic cruise from New York

Cruises from New York are ideal for travelers interested in a pre- or post-cruise stay in the Big Apple to see a Broadway show, tour fantastic museums and visit amazing restaurants.

Whether you're looking to sail in 2024 or planning a 2025 getaway, here are our top picks for cruises from New York.

Royal Caribbean: Southern Caribbean cruises

ship cruise new york

Active cruisers craving a beach getaway should consider Royal Caribbean 's 11-night Southern Caribbean sailings aboard Odyssey of the Seas. Part of the line's Quantum Class of vessels, Odyssey of the Seas is chock-full of every imaginable attraction.

The top deck is home to multiple pool areas, a kids splash zone, a skydiving simulator and a rock-climbing wall. Inside, you'll find a bumper car pavilion and a sports court that can serve as a laser tag arena and a trapeze school.

Given the ship's size and diverse activities, your group can enjoy plenty of together time — bonding during shore trips, dinner each evening or physical challenges like rock climbing. But it's easy to find "just me" time at the vessel's Vitality Spa, too.

Off-ship activities at various ports of call include hiking Mount Concordia or enjoying a relaxing beach day at Orient Beach on St. Maarten, touring St. Lucia's coast by catamaran or hiking the island's iconic twin pitons, snorkeling around shipwrecks in Barbados and relaxing on the honey-hued sands of Nevis.

The 2025 sailing departs Jan. 16 from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey. Fares start from $1,430 per person, based on double occupancy, for an inside cabin. Taxes, fees and port expenses start from about $186 per person.

American Cruise Lines: Fall foliage cruises

ship cruise new york

Leaf-peeping road trips might be popular, but why not avoid the traffic jams and enjoy a fall foliage cruise instead?

American Cruise Lines , the largest river cruise line in the U.S., operates small-ship sailings exclusively along the nation's rivers and coasts. Among them is the seven-night Hudson River Fall Foliage Cruise that departs from New York City.

The itinerary is available on five of the line's 19 vessels — American Eagle, American Glory, American Independence, American Liberty and American Star. The ships accommodate 90 or 100 passengers.

A vibrant quilt of orange, red and yellow unfolds as you glide down the Hudson River. Port calls along the way include the Catskills, Hyde Park, West Point and Sleepy Hollow. Excursions showcase each region's history and culture and are offered for all activity levels.

In the Catskills, passengers can take a moderate hike for sweeping views of New York's Kaaterskill Falls, one of America's oldest tourist attractions. Spend time exploring Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site or sampling local cheeses and apples during a call on Hyde Park. Lean into the spooky season in Sleepy Hollow with a tour of the Gothic Lyndhurst Mansion or Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, the final resting place of Washington Irving, who penned the iconic short story.

Fall 2024 itineraries depart between late September and early November. Similar departure dates are available in 2025. Fares for the round-trip Hudson River Fall Foliage cruises start from $5,760 per person. Fares are all-inclusive and come with all meals, snacks, drinks (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) and gratuities. The cost also covers port charges and fees.

Oceania Cruises: Northern Europe cruises

ship cruise new york

If you've amassed a stockpile of vacation days, consider using them on an extended cruise through Northern Europe with Oceania Cruises .

The line offers an 18-night sailing to Reykjavik and a 23-night voyage to Copenhagen, both of which depart from New York City. Both sailings are aboard the 670-passenger Insignia, among Oceania's smaller ships. Insignia provides a relatively uncrowded atmosphere thanks to a higher crew-to-passenger ratio than on Oceania's larger vessels.

Additionally, the ship's smaller size means it can visit ports that larger ships can't access, providing a more intimate and immersive destination experience.

Port call excursions on the New York-to-Reykjavik itinerary include a visit to Halifax, Nova Scotia's Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, home to the world's largest collection of wooden artifacts from the Titanic. In Nuuk, Greenland, passengers can visit a local family and learn about their culture and customs. Stroll through botanical gardens or check out the world's northernmost 18-hole golf course in Akureyri, Iceland.

A Copenhagen sailing also calls at Halifax, Nuuk and Reykjavik. Additional ports include Torshavn, Denmark; Kristiansand, Norway; and Gothenburg, Sweden.

Rates for an 18-night New York-to-Reykjavik sailing that departs Aug. 6, 2025, start from $6,299 per person for an inside cabin. A 2024 itinerary for a 23-night New York-to-Copenhagen itinerary departs July 12, with rates starting from $8,199 per person for an inside cabin.

MSC Cruises: Eastern Caribbean cruises

ship cruise new york

MSC Cruises offers 10-night cruises aboard MSC Meraviglia, departing from Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood. The 5,655-passenger ship features a top-deck water park and a two-deck indoor promenade area with shops, restaurants and bars. Passengers who've booked a Yacht Club cabin have their own lounge, restaurant and pool area.

The Eastern Caribbean itinerary calls at ports in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten.

Port diversions include snorkeling pristine waters or jumping off waterfalls in the Dominican Republic; exploring Puerto Rico's El Yunque, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System; and testing your bravery in St. Maarten on the Flying Dutchman, called the world's steepest zip line.

The 10-night sailing departs April 18, 2024, and Jan. 23, 2025. Cruise-only fares start from $599 per person and exclude taxes, fees and port expenses (which start from about $187 per person).

Celebrity Cruises: Bermuda cruises

ship cruise new york

Celebrity Cruises offers two seven-night Bermuda sailings from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, aboard Celebrity Eclipse or Celebrity Silhouette, both in the line's Solstice Class of ships.

Slightly smaller than Edge Class vessels, Solstice Class ships feature chic outdoor pool decks, expansive spas, casinos and a generous selection of onboard dining, including Murano, Celebrity's signature French restaurant.

Both sailings include two overnight stays in Bermuda, giving passengers plenty of time to take in Bermuda's attractions. The ship docks at the historic Royal Naval Dockyard at the island's West End, which is a hub for shops, local craft markets and restaurants. Elsewhere on the island, the 117-foot Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, one of only two cast-iron lighthouses still in existence, provides one of the best views in Bermuda. Of course, the island's pink sand beaches offer an idyllic setting for a relaxing day off the ship.

Several 2024 itineraries are available throughout the summer, beginning with a May 19 departure. For 2025, there are seven sailings beginning with a May 18 itinerary. Fares start from $548 per person for an inside cabin and exclude taxes, fees and port expenses (about $264 per person).

Silversea Cruises: New England and Canada cruises

ship cruise new york

For ultra-luxury afloat, consider one of Silversea Cruises ' 11-night sailings from New York City to Montreal aboard Silver Shadow. Carrying just 382 guests, this intimate all-suite ship is still large enough to offer multiple dining venues. Options include La Dame, with its French-inspired cuisine and exceptional wines, and La Terrazza, the place to go for authentic Italian dishes.

Other onboard diversions include a pool, a full-service spa, a fitness center and a casino. Additionally, all suites feature butlers who can do everything from unpacking your luggage to securing special requests.

A highlight of Silver Shadow's New England and Canada itinerary is an overnight in Quebec City so guests can go ashore for dining and entertainment. This itinerary also includes cruising Quebec's forest-lined Saguenay River and port calls at Newport, Rhode Island; Boston; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and Montreal, where the voyage ends.

The 2025 New England and Canada sailing departs Sept. 2. All-inclusive fares start from $6,850 per person.

Cunard Line: Transatlantic cruises

ship cruise new york

Cunard 's 2,691-passenger Queen Mary 2 regularly plies the Atlantic Ocean between New York City and Southampton, England. This "crossing" voyage is a throwback of sorts to the "Golden Age of Cruising," when movie stars and political leaders traveled via liner across the ocean.

Today, it's a one-of-a-kind experience with modern amenities, elegant dining, ballroom dancing, a planetarium, a full-service spa, wine tasting, enrichment activities and special event cruises.

Opt for a seven-, an eight- or a nine-night eastbound transatlantic crossing, or choose a 14-night round-trip voyage. Savor uninterrupted sea days, enjoy live music, play shuffleboard, learn from guest lecturers or take in a 3D film in the largest planetarium at sea.

For 2024, choose from six itineraries that depart in May, June and October. Three itineraries are currently listed for 2025 in January, March and May. Fares for transatlantic cruises start from $988 per person, excluding taxes, fees and port expenses, which start from $75.45.

Norwegian Cruise Line: Mediterranean cruises

ship cruise new york

Want to explore Europe without the intense jet lag? With this Norwegian Cruise Line cruise starting in New York City, you can spend six days making your way slowly across the Atlantic before spending another 10 days exploring destinations in Spain, France and Italy.

The 16-night sailing takes place aboard Norwegian Escape, departing from New York City and ending in Rome.

Norwegian originated the idea of "freestyle cruising" — a cruise vacation void of rigid dining schedules and dress codes — and is popular for those seeking a casual, resort-at-sea experience.

The ship features a wide range of dining venues like O'Sheehan's Bar & Grill for comfort food, Food Republic for Asian-Latin fusion cuisine and Bayamo by Ocean Blue for seafood. Entertainment options include shows like "Deal or No Deal" and "Wheel of Fortune." Plenty of attractions — including the top-deck Aqua Park, a ropes course, a casino, a minigolf course and a spa — provide onboard diversions.

Norwegian does a great job of prioritizing the 10 port calls on this itinerary, many of which average eight hours in length, so you can see as much of the destination as possible. Fill a day at the Balearic island of Ibiza in unspoiled Ses Salines Natural Park or the historic Dalt Vila district. In Cannes, France, tour the old town or peruse the Picasso Museum. Marvel at Michelangelo's David or browse some of Europe's oldest markets in Italy.

An April 8 sailing in 2024 is available. Fares start from $949 per person for an inside cabin. Fares exclude taxes, fees and port expenses (about $395 per person).

Holland America Line: Extended bucket-list cruises

If a monthlong voyage is on your wish list, Holland America Line offers two such cruises from New York City aboard the 1,400-passenger Volendam.

The 30-night Amazon Explorer departs from Manhattan and weaves its way through the Caribbean isles to Brazil, with port calls along the banks of the Amazon River. The itinerary then continues back through the Caribbean before finishing in Fort Lauderdale.

Cruisers have time to explore the iconic rainforest thanks to an overnight port call in Manaus, Brazil. Other destination highlights include St. Maarten; St. Lucia; Barbados; Devils Island, French Guiana; Santarem, Manaus and Parintins, Brazil; Trinidad and Tobago; Curacao; and Aruba.

Or, go all-out on a trip of a lifetime with the 45-night Ultimate Mediterranean and Atlantic Passage cruise. The round-trip itinerary from New York is one to add to your bucket list. Imagine overnight stays in Rome, Cairo and Istanbul — no air travel needed.

In Ponta Delgada, Portugal, cook your lunch in the natural hot springs of Furnas. Barcelona provides the opportunity to peruse art museums and sample authentic tapas. Additional port calls include Florence and Naples, Italy; Santorini, Greece; Seville, Spain; and Madeira, Portugal.

Volendam's smaller size means fewer onboard amenities, but guests can spend their sea days enjoying abundant and diverse live music options, a top-notch spa and fantastic food developed by culinary heavyweights like Ethan Stowell, Rudi Sodamin and Masaharu Morimoto.

The 30-night Amazon Explorer voyage departs Nov. 21, 2025. Fares start from $5,009 per person. Taxes, fees and port expenses are an additional cost (up to $845). The Mediterranean and Atlantic Passage sailing leaves Oct. 7, 2025. Fares start from $5,749 per person. Taxes, fees and port expenses are an additional cost (up to $795).

A cruise ship dancer from the Big Apple has been arrested in Florida for allegedly possessing and distributing child sex abuse material — with victims as young as 2 years old engaged in sexual acts with adults.

Jamaal Wade, 26, of Washington Heights, was arrested by US Marshals in Broward County on Sunday and charged with receipt, possession and distribution of child porn, WPLG reported .

It was not immediately clear if the arrest was made before or after a cruise.

“Wade distributed files containing sexually explicit images of minors from/on a computer in New York, New York via the Telegram messaging application,” states a complaint filed by the Southern District Court of New York obtained by The Post.

The victims were described as “prepubescent minors and minors who had not attained 12 years of age.”

ship cruise new york

An investigation was launched in October after federal agents seized the phone of a user of the messaging app Telegram. Wade allegedly sent that person child sexual abuse material depicting victims as young as 2.

The recipient told authorities he had gone to Wade’s Manhattan apartment to view the illicit material with him. He “also provided the username of an Instagram account used by Jamaal,” the filing says.

In January, the person sent the covert FBI employee eight videos “depicting male children between the ages of approximately four and eight years old engaged in sexual activities, including oral and anal penetration, with adult males,” it adds.

Jamaal Wade

Wade also told the man he had been arrested in Detroit for conduct “while on tour.”

Detroit police records confirmed that he was arrested on Feb. 18, 2020, after being accused of molesting an 11-year-old boy. It was unclear whether he was convicted.

The suspect has allegedly admitted in online chats to molesting a boy while “on tour with a performance group.”

Jamaal Wade

During the probe, a federal agent began chatting with Wade, who sent them several videos of young boys being raped and sexually abused, according to the court filing.

He also mentioned working on cruise ships as a dancer, though the document does not mention which company.

But in a 2020 profile posted by a staffing site , Jamaal Wade is described as having worked for both Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines, as well as on stage.

Jamaal Wade

In a March 22 chat, Wade reportedly told the FBI agent that he had “brought his ‘collection’” of child sexual abuse material “on board the ship.”

He was charged with ​one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

He could face up to 20 years behind bars on each count if convicted.

As of Tuesday, Wade remained in the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach awaiting extradition to Manhattan, WPLG reported.

The Post has reached out to Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines for comment.

WEATHER ALERT

A rip current statement in effect for Coastal Broward and Coastal Miami Dade Regions

Cruise ship dancer accused of distributing child sexual abuse material.

Chris Gothner , Digital Journalist

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A cruise ship dancer from New York appeared in Fort Lauderdale federal court Monday after authorities accused him of possessing and distributing child sexual abuse material.

Court documents state Jamaal Wade, 26, of Washington Heights, Manhattan, admitted in online chats to having molested a boy while “on tour with a performance group.”

U.S. Marshals arrested him in Broward County on Sunday, jail records show. It’s not clear whether the arrest came before or after a cruise.

Court documents state the investigation into Wade began in October after federal agents seized the phone of a user of the messaging app Telegram.

Wade, authorities said, had sent that user child sexual abuse material depicting victims as young as 2. Additionally, that user said that he had gone to Wade’s apartment to view child sexual abuse material with him, court documents state.

According to those court documents, Wade had told the user that he had previously been arrested in Detroit for conduct “while on tour.”

Authorities said Detroit Police Department arrest records confirmed that Wade had been arrested on Feb. 18, 2020 after being accused of molesting an 11-year-old boy. It’s unclear whether he was ever convicted; Wade’s name did not show up in searches of Michigan court records.

An FBI covert employee later began chatting with Wade, who sent the agent multiple videos of boys as young as 4 being raped or otherwise sexually abused, court documents state.

Authorities said Wade, in chats with both the original suspect and the undercover agent, discussed working on cruise ships as a dancer.

Court documents do not specify which cruise line employed him at the time of his arrest; a 2020 profile of Wade states he has worked for both Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines and on stage.

The documents state that Wade, in a March 22 chat, told the FBI covert employee that he had “brought his ‘collection’” of child sexual abuse material “on board the ship.”

Wade is charged with one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. He could face up to 20 years in prison on each count if convicted.

Further prosecution of his case will be handled in the Southern District of New York, according to federal court records.

Wade remained in the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach, pending extradition, as of Tuesday morning.

Stranded Norwegian Cruise Lines passengers missed ship ‘by more than an hour,’ company claims

T he six Americans and two Australian passengers who were stranded on an African island when a Norwegian Cruise Line ship sailed off without them have now returned to the vessel to continue their African voyage, as the cruise line revealed the group caused their travel headaches over the past few days by missing their departure time by over an hour.

The eight passengers reboarded the ship making a 20-day journey across Africa on Tuesday morning in Dakar, Senegal, a spokesperson for Norwegian confirmed to The Post.

The crew had to race through seven different countries in 48 hours to meet the ship in Senegal on Tuesday.

But by the time South Carolina couple Jill and Jay Campbell arrived in the country, they said they weren’t sure whether they would even want to get back on the ship.

“After what we witnessed, we truly believe there is a set of rules or policies that the ship may have followed — they followed those rules too rigidly,” Jill Campbell  told “The Today Show.”

“I really feel that they forgot they are people working in the hospitality industry and that really the safety and wellbeing of their customers should be their first priority,” she added, claiming the crew of the ship had a “basic duty of care that they had forgotten about.”

The eight passengers — including a pregnant woman and an elderly man with a heart condition — claimed they were left behind with no money and without vital medications after the Norwegian Dawn left São Tomé without them.

The Campbells claimed the ship was still anchored off the coast of the Central African island when they showed up on Friday, but the skipper refused to let them board.

A spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Line, however, said the group had missed the all-aboard time by more than an hour after taking a private tour of the island.

“When they missed the all-aboard time of 3 p.m. by more than an hour, their passports were left with the local port agent for retrieval when they returned to the port from their private tour (not organized by us), per the protocol,” the  spokesperson   said.

The  Campbells have acknowledged there was “an issue” on their tour of the island, and that the guide “didn’t get us back” to the ship in time on Friday.

“We were like, our time is getting really short, and they were like ‘No problem, we can get you back within an hour,” Jay said, adding that the tour operator contacted the captain to let them know about the delay.

In its statement, the company said that “once the guests did not make it back to the ship at the previously communicated all aboard time, we worked with them and the local port agent to assist with obtaining the necessary visas for them to rejoin the ship at the next available port.”

Attorney James Diamond from TWC Lawyers said it is a “hard and fast rule” that a ship can leave once a final call has been made.

“They pay a lot of money for docking fees, and renting out the space,” he told ”Seven’s Sunrise.”

“They have times that they have to leave, those times are published and unfortunately, I know it’s morally incorrect, but they do have the right to leave,” he said.

Stranded Norwegian Cruise Lines passengers missed ship ‘by more than an hour,’ company claims

This major cruise line operator just announced its biggest ship order ever

ship cruise new york

One of the world’s leading cruise operators unveiled its biggest ship order ever on Monday.

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. will take delivery of eight ships between 2026 and 2036 across its three brands. 

Norwegian Cruise Line will welcome four ships in 2030, 2032, 2034 and 2036, each with a capacity of close to 5,000 guests. The additions are subject to financing.

The vessels will follow the line’s previously announced Prima-Plus class vessels.

The upscale Oceania Cruises will take delivery of two 1,450-guest ships in 2027 and 2029, and luxury line Regent Seven Seas Cruises will add two ships in 2026 and 2029, each accommodating 850 passengers.

"This strategic new-ship order across all three of our award-winning brands provides for the steady introduction of cutting-edge vessels into our fleet and solidifies our long-term growth,” Harry Sommer, the company’s president and CEO, said in a news release . “It also allows us to significantly leverage our operating scale, strengthen our commitment to innovation and enhance our ability to offer our guests new products and experiences, all while providing opportunities to enhance the efficiency of our fleet.”

Specifics about the ships’ accommodations and amenities will be announced “in the coming months,” according to the release.

The company will also add a new multi-ship pier at its private Bahamas island, Great Stirrup Cay, scheduled for completion by late 2025. The pier will be able to accommodate two large ships at once.

The parent company to Norwegian Cruise Line announced Monday a major order for eight new ships among its three brands as well as the construction of a pier to allow its cruise ships to dock instead of tender to its private Bahamas island for the first time.

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said it was planning to bring on four new ships for NCL, two new ships for upper premium brand Oceania Cruises and two ships for luxury brand Regent Seven Seas, all to be built at Fincantieri shipyard in Italy and debut during a 10-year run from 2026-2036.

The NCL ships would be the largest ever built for the line at around 200,000 gross tons and capacity of about 5,000 guests. They won’t arrive until after the final delivery of its Prima-Plus class ships expected between 2025-2028, the larger sister ships to the Norwegian Prima and Viva that debuted in the last couple of years. The four ships from the unnamed class of vessel would arrive in 2030, 2032, 2034 and 2036.

The new class for Oceania Cruises, which in 2023 debuted its first new ship in more than a decade — the Oceania Allura — will also be the largest ever built for the line at 86,000 gross tons and a capacity of 1,450 guests. They’re expected in 2027 and 2029.

And the Regent Seven Seas fleet’s new vessels will also be larger coming in at 77,000 gross tons with a capacity of 850 guests. They’re expected in 2026 and 2029. Regent just debuted the third of its Explorer class ships in December 2023.

“This strategic new-ship order across all three of our award-winning brands provides for the steady introduction of cutting-edge vessels into our fleet and solidifies our long-term growth,” said NCLH president and CEO Harry Sommer in a press release. “It also allows us to significantly leverage our operating scale, strengthen our commitment to innovation and enhance our ability to offer our guests new products and experiences, all while providing opportunities to enhance the efficiency of our fleet.”

No other details about the ships were released. Financing is already in place to fund 80% of the cost for the four ships among the Oceania and Regent orders, but financing for the four NCL ships is not finalized.

The eight ships expects to add 25,000 more to the three cruise lines’ passenger capacity.

In addition, the line is set to construct a multi-ship pier at Great Stirrup Cay, the popular Bahamas private destination visited by all three brands. The move follows the introduction of a dock that can support two Oasis-class vessels at neighboring Perfect Day at Coco Cay for Royal Caribbean while other private Bahamas destinations including Disney’s Castaway Cay and its new Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point feature tenderless docks for easy access.

“We are likewise excited with the addition of a new pier at Great Stirrup Cay to support our increased capacity in the Caribbean and multiple ships to call on the island, enhancing our guest experience and bringing seamless and reliable access to our private island year-round,” Sommer said.
