We're looking to take a cruise on Explorer OTS next May, 2008 and we have never been there before, and I have a few questions (what better place to ask than here.)
Which airport should I fly into; is there a rather inexpensive hotel or motel nearby since we'll be flying in the day before; which would be better, getting local transportation from the hotel/motel to the ship, or does RCCL have transportation either from the airport or from a central location generally near any one hotel/motel area
Thanks guys!! Love this site!!

Jim, Newark Airport is closest to Bayonne. RCI will have transfers from Newark and LaGuardia at different costs, so you need to balance that against the less expensive airport to fly into. I always recommend coming in the day before. If you arrive in the evening, staying near Newark is convenient. If you arrive during the day before the cruise, staying closer to New York City so you can do something in NY may be better, despite it being further from Cape Liberty. There's not much to do around Newark Airport unless you take transportation into New York from there.

We're flying in the day before, calling for the complimentary hotel shuttle (Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel). Once at the hotel going to Liberty State Park, ferry to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. The next day, shuttle back to airport and and taking a cab from there (4 adults) to the port.
CABS ARE EXPENSIVE in Newark. $46 plus tip...but the RCCL tranfer was $25 per person each way.
