In Red Hook
Brooklyn Cruise Terminal The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook is now the largest cruise ship facility in New York City, at least until renovations are completed on the Manhattan terminal, at West 46th Street. The Red Hook terminal is the first cruise port in the city that is long enough and deep enough for the extra-large ships. The Brooklyn terminal will accommodate 192,000 passengers from 38 ships in its first year of operation, eventually accounting for about one-fifth of the roughly one million passengers who will pass through New York City this year.

The shift is expected to advance the city into a new era of passenger ship glory: bringing 250,000 voyagers to town beyond this year’s 900,000; adding dozens of dockings to the schedule; creating thousands of jobs and an array of retail, restaurant, hotel and other traveler-related businesses in Red Hook; and speeding the revival of a once grim industrial-warehouse district. Since the 2006 cruise season, the four ships – Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth 2 and Princess Line’s Crown Princess and Star Princess – will call about 44 times at Pier 12, a former cargo dock rapidly undergoing transformation, with a rebuilt steel shed, new bollards and fenders, an internal roadway, a 500-car parking area, taxi and bus drop-off areas, and even landscaping.
