Yup!! We did it!!! Hopped on down on the Megabus from Providence RI to NYC for an 8 day cruise aboard the Carnival Splendor!! We rode on a clean, comfortable Double Deck coach at a cost of $1 pp each way (book early as the price rises as you get closer to departure).
The bus was fairly new and in great condition. Clean with comfy reclining seats, wifi and great drivers...the bus was on time and convenient to the pier requiring only a short taxi ride!! We shall definitely ride the Megabus into NYC for future NYC Cruising....it beats driving, flying and rail in more ways than one! Take a little more time, relax a lot more (Yes, the bus has a very low noise level), Nap, read or chat...it is an express......and spend the money you just saved on the cruise adventure just ahead of you!! Bon Voyage my fellow thirfty travelers and cruisers!!
