I will be on the Victory next September leaving out of new york. Does anyone know which airport i should be arriving at? I've never been to New York, and I'm not even sure where the cruise ship will be docked. It will be a singles cruise, so i think they will have a hotel for us to stay in, but i'm not sure which airport i should be flying into (I'm in Texas). thanks for any info you have!

I would fly into LaGuardia. Airport code is LGA.

We've taken several cruises out of NYC, including Carnival Victory this past summer.

Your ship is scheduled to depart from the Manhattan piers. A great site to check out is http://www.nycruiseterminal.com/terminal.html.

Is the organizer of the singles cruise providing transportation to/from the hotel? And, have they told you the hotel and its location? That would influence the choice of airport for me.

We tend to use LaGuardia airport (LGA). Taxi fares from LGA to midtown Manhattan are generally in the range of $30-$35 (depending upon traffic) plus another $10 or so for tolls and tip. Kennedy airport (JFK) is another option, but taxi fares to Manhattan are higher -- a flat rate of $45 PLUS tolls and tip. I have not used Newark airport (EWR), but hopefully someone will come along who has. But, generally, I would select LaGuardia.


I am originally from NYC, and I now travel there quite frequently for business, so I'm happy to answer what I can.

You're welcome, Sheri. I still need to submit my review of the Carnival Victory cruise -- it's written; I've just been lazy with the photos.
