Brooklyn Cruise Terminal Overview
Opened in April 2006, the new state-of-the-art Brooklyn Cruise Terminal has received numerous accolades, including “Cruise Terminal of the Year” by Princess Cruise Lines and “Best New Homeport” by PortHole Magazine. The modern terminal offers all the services and comforts expected from a world-class cruise facility including 200,000 square feet of flexible terminal space, sophisticated gangways, separate bus stalls, and ample parking. Dedicated embarkation and debarkation areas allow passengers to get on the ship without waiting. In its first year of operation, the 182,000-square-foot Brooklyn Cruise Terminal welcomed 40 ships and added 330 new permanent jobs to the Brooklyn waterfront.
The terminal is located in the Red Hook area of Brooklyn, one of the city’s new hotspots with a recent influx of restaurants, retailers, and artists just steps away from the terminal.
