  1. I like the sound of the Embassy Suites since there will be four of us. Myself, sure and two sons (19&22). May be I can book a white that's e effectively cheaper than two standard rooms... Even if not they always have breakfast, a bar, etc. Makes for a nice stay. I've read up on the port garage and it sounds all positive - Easy in, easy out. May be there's cheaper options but $22 a day isn't awful especially for the ease and convenience.
  2. Thanks for the reply! Our youngest son goes to Worcester State 😉
  3. We travel to NY a lot, wife’s family is on Long Island. At least 2-3 times a year. We lived there for 5 years before Westchester for 3 and finally home to MA 15 years ago. The drive is hit or miss. Christmas Day we made it in just over three on the way down, but it took over 4 on the way back. I guess we thought the whole vacation might seem less stressful and a little longer if we got to NJ the day before, but we’ll have to consider the savings of not spending the night as well. We’d need two rooms... thanks so much for the reply!
  4. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply! This is really helpful info, much appreciated
  5. Any other recommendations for hotel & parking for Cape Liberty? We are driving down from Massachusetts. We lived in NY for a long time butt on Long Island and Westchester so don't know the Newark area quite as well. I guess we would prefer a hotel that has at least breakfast, and a parking /shuttle solution would be ideal. I'll keep searching through older posts too, but thought it might be worth bumping this thread back up the message board 😉
  6. I'm more of a beer and wine guy but my wife loved Citrus Coolers, it was drink of the day a couple of days into the last cruise and she stuck with it for the duration.
  7. The videos are great! Thank you very much for sharing your experience.
  8. @Fuzzywuzzy how did you post the pic so fast? Just had a photo of the machine handy? ;-)
  9. That is the best news I've gotten in a long time! I know that might not make sense to anyone but for my own reasons it's awesome. Thank you so much!
  10. Ok since there's a thread on this, I'll take the opportunity to ask... Can I get Powerade Zero from the Freestyle machines? Is the offering standard from ship to ship? (Those that have them...)
  11. Michelle is the best! She replied to my email while she was ON A CRUISE! I felt awful and to d her it could wait. Always responsive, friendly, and professional.
  12. We went on the Empress in may and LOVED the ship. The crew was fantastic and everything was clean and well maintained. It's small, but there was always something to do. 5 Night voyage went by really fast. We'd sail her again, and might just do a Canada trip ourselves :-)
  13. Our May 2020 Adventure price is higher than last time I checked... Not pulling the trigger until there is a major sale ;-)
  14. We used these from Highwind Travel - they work great! https://highwindtravel.com/
  15. I smoked for 17 years and always promised myself I wouldn't be a hypocrite when it came to banning it. That said, even in the late 90's it was banned in-doors in many places and it's amazing to me that 20 years later that ships still allow it in the casino's. I guess they may know better, but it seems to me that non-smokers that won't subject themselves to it far outnumber smokers so aren't you possibly LOSING casino business by allowing it more than you are gaining by permitting them to smoke in the casino? The Empress casino is smoke free and it didn't seem to be hurting the traffic at all, it was busy in there all the time. The smoking area on the Empress was behind Bolero's and I spent a decent amount of time there, love the aft view, and the smoke was never an issue. You could smell it, but it wasn't difficult to get away from and still enjoy the space/view. I do like a good cigar on occasion, especially on vacation, but am fine doing it outdoors, in-fact I prefer it.
