Updated News from Dundalk Passenger Terminal Baltimore

The Port Of Baltimore. Get On Board.

Cruise Information

Due to the recent tragedy in New York City, select cruise vessels normally calling at New York’s passenger terminal, will sail from the Port of Baltimore. Celebrity's Zenith will disembark and embark passengers for one week cruises to Bermuda from Dundalk Marine Terminal Passenger Terminal Building every Saturday through October 27, 2001.

Passengers should be aware of heightened security at the terminal, and while boarding the ship when they arrive at Baltimore.  The following is a list of tips to help make your cruising experience run smoothly.


  • Ship usually arrives at 7:00 a.m., but passengers will begin to disembark and collect luggage at the Passenger Terminal around 10:00 a.m.
  • Taxis will be available to transport passengers to the airport, train station, or the destination of their choice.
  • People picking up arriving passengers should arrive on terminal no earlier than 9:00 a.m., as they will be required to stay in their cars until the passengers disembark and collect their luggage.


  • Embarking passengers should arrive at Dundalk Marine Terminal around 12:00 p.m. The ship sails at 6:00 p.m., leaving plenty of time for luggage security clearance and vessel embark.

  • Passengers arriving at the Dundalk Marine Terminal will be issued a visitor’s pass to enter the terminal, but must remain in the secured cruise area while on the terminal.

  • Security has been heightened, so passengers should be prepared for a short wait while baggage is being screened.


  • Passengers wishing to leave their cars will be issued a visitor’s pass at the Dundalk Marine Terminal Gate.  Passengers should drop their luggage at the Passenger Terminal Building before parking their vehicles.  A free shuttle bus will return parking passenger to the  terminal.

  • Parking is $5.00 per day and is in a secure off-site lot less than 5 minutes away from the terminal gate.


  • Questions about your cruise should be directed to the cruise line or your travel agent.

At Baltimore, all terminals are open and cargo is flowing smoothly. Coast Guard and Customs operations are ensuring safe access to and from all cargo terminals.

The Coast Guard Captain of the Port has established a temporary security zone upon the waters of Baltimore's Inner Harbor - the area that abuts Baltimore's downtown waterfront - not the port's cargo terminals. All vessels and persons are prohibited from entering this zone without authorization from the Captain of the Port. Vessels can depart the zone with approval and coordination with the Coast Guard.

Passengers will find easy access to the Dundalk Passenger Terminal by private car or taxi. From Interstate 95 north or south, take Keith Avenue exit 56. Turn left onto Keith Avenue until it merges into Broening Highway. Take Broening Highway one mile to the Dundalk Marine Terminal. Make a right into the Visitor's Entrance (the first entrance to the terminal). The Guard at the entrance will provide you with further directions. Click here for a map.

Secured parking is available near the Passenger Terminal for only $5.00 per day.
