Depends which cruise terminal. The 7 train is close by and will connect you to the West Side of the city. If you mean the South Seaport just take the 4,5 train at Grand Central all the way to City Hall. Any other question feel free to ask.

Stayed in double with bunk bed — very quiet and clean 😊 Small little park across the street was a pleasant surprise — also Thai restaurant close by was excellent.

"927 was a corner room and quieter, 923 was at the junction of hallways, definitely louder though tolerable."
"Recommend the Queen Room with private bath"
"we have stayed in the full room with bathroom and the bunkbeds with a bathroom all were just amazing"
