Brooklyn Cruise Terminal Voted Number One

The Post reports that Brooklyn's new cruise-ship terminal has been chosen as the nation's best new homeport.

"The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is a wonderful addition to the cruise industry," said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine, who made the selection.

Unlike many New Yorkers, Panoff called the terminal's location -- Red Hook -- convenient. "And you can't beat the views of downtown Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge," he said.

McBrooklyn recommends that cruise travelers read the Brooklyn Cruise Guide, especially the Directions section. The day we visited, hundreds of confused travelers were on cell phones, trying to explain to their rides just exactly where Red Hook was.
