Royal Caribbean to expand Cape Liberty

By Tom Stieghorst
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCCL) said it will build a second terminal at Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, N.J., a facility that serves the New York area.

Groundbreaking on the $55 million project has already occurred, and the terminal is expected to be completed in time for the arrival of Quantum of the Seas in November.

The 125,000-square-foot terminal will include check-in, customs and immigration, and luggage-processing space, as well as a 900-car parking structure and pier improvements.

RCCL opened Cape Liberty 10 years ago this month. Currently, the port is the year-round home of Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas and seasonally for Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Summit.
