  1. @JaxI have not gone through the reviews, because I was lured by the deal...silly mistake lol. I never want to know about that coffee maker LOL. Even though I have not experienced the Newark hotels, I have stayed in the Hilton Garden Inn of Staten Island. Free parking , reliable shuttle and clean room. It’s nothing fancy but is attached to a restaurant/ballroom space. This spot is definitely worth checking out. We were just looking for other options that were a bit more upscale and different from what we’ve done. Probably will wind up finding a decent place that offers free or low parkin
  2. Hi!!! Super curious and interested to hear everyone’s input (not class of ships, rather the ship itself and one reason why? Drew
  3. Hi! been a busy week but I did find some information. There are multiple hotels in the area that offer a cruise and stay package, however many still charge for parking at a reduced rate. BUUUUUUUUTTTTTTT......There are three hotels 10 miles or closer from the terminal that offer free parking for at least seven nights if you stay the night before. In addition these hotels offer free shuttle service to and from the cruise terminal. While I was looking for a few different "upscale" options, free shuttle transport AND free parking is really nice! These hotels are: Hilton Garden In
  4. Hi everyone, @Rmauch1163 and I would like to say THANK YOU for welcoming us into your Cruiser Community! While I have @Rmauch1163 catching up on all the Live Blogs I have already read, I am sitting here reflecting. I am reflecting on how much information we have already learned in the few weeks since we have joined this blog. Special shout out to @Jax, @WAAAYTOOO, @SweetPea and @Lovetocruise2002 . Your blogs and information have REALLY helped us with planning. Yes, we have over a year to go but planning this cruise out is keeping us going everyday. I have said it before but after ou
  5. That good huh? I wonder how far in advance we can reserve a cabana. Would I do that through my genie or Cruise Planner? Do they ever go on a special price? Do they deliver drinks and food to cabana?
  6. I have been to Labadee once on a past Celebrity Cruise I have done. I was there over 10 years ago so I imagine there is a lot more to do. Debating whether this would be a place for us to go to. We are doing Star so I know we have access to Barefoot Beach. Cabana or no cabana? Input is much appreciated! We love planning this vacation even if it is a year and a month away lol. I think everyone on this blog needs a cruise vacation! Drew
  7. I am still having issues uploading my picture. Help Me LOL!!!
  8. Hi @Matt! Happy New Year! I am also having an issue loading a profile pic. I have tried different pictures and it never loads when I save. Thank you!
  9. Could my cruise be added as well please? Anthem of the Seas February 11th, 2022
  10. WE WILL PERSEVERE!!! My husband got his Monday (Moderna) and mine will be in a week and a half (Pfizer). Husband still has two eyes and all four limbs!!! Lol!!! If we notice any differences, I will let you all know! Both of us are in medical and cannot wait to be vaccinated. I am so curious what the new guidelines for cruising will be!!! We are very hopeful that we will be able to see safe cruising by EOY 2021!!! Sending you all happy thoughts and virtual hugs! Drew
  11. @Lovetocruise2002 @USCG Teacher @karl_nj Thanks for the added input. Hyatt House seems to be a good option! I will definitely be contacting them soon to see if they indeed do a cruise package where parking at the hotel would be complimentary or discounted. Also will check out the W. If these hotels do a package, I will post my findings on this thread. In the meantime, I can gather the information of the hotels in the nearby area that I know for sure offer a package and post it here. Like I previously mentioned, we have stayed at two hotels that offer such perks. Keep the awesome input coming!
