New York – Brooklyn Cruise Terminal information
Last updated on August 25th, 2018 at 10:13 pm
The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is one of two cruise terminals at the Port of New York. For information on the Manhattan Cruise Terminal (home to most Norwegian cruises), click here.
The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is located at 72 Bowne Street in Brooklyn. Located in the up-and-coming Red Hook district of Brooklyn, it is a very industrial area of town, but you will see a blue sign for the Brooklyn terminal at the corner of Imlay Street and Bowne. Don’t let the area fool, you, however. The state-of-the-art terminal was built in 2006 and features modern amenities to ensure smooth and fast embarkation and debarkation.

Weather in Brooklyn
In New York, temperatures hit their peak in July and August, with humidity reaching up to 90 percent. There aren’t usually any snowstorms to worry about until December due to the city’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Mild and pleasant summers are typical for the rest of the state. Keep in mind that winters can be very cold especially upstate, and there may be heavy snow and ice until well into May.
