So....construction continues on the new pier for Quantum of the Seas....that ship will be in Cape Liberty for about 6 months, followed by Liberty of the Seas, also for 6 months, and Anthem of the Seas, for as long as Royal leaves her there..
An Embassy Suites opened on Glimcher Realty Way in Early 2014 and it's gorgeous! Not your typical Embassy. They do have a shuttle within a few miles, but NOT to the pier....rates are a little higher than other properties, but you get a full, hot breakfast cooked to order OR you can choose from the buffet items, plus a nightly manager's reception with light snacks. ( I heard they actually have a light dinner, but I have not personally confirmed it so I would not say YES they do..)
Here are a couple pics of the port construction....the terminal is supposed to be done in time for the November arrival of Quantum, as is the parking deck....We'll see
I will try and update this space more often........
