  11. If you want to tour Manhattan then I would stay there. Here is some more info; https://www.nycgo.com/boroughs-neighborhoods/brooklyn/,
  12. You might want to get the a deluxe balcony too. When you go to a regular balcony there is only one chair to sit on. For us, we both need a place to sit. And if you are told that you can get another chair, well that is a hit and miss deal. So, if one of you wants to stand or sit on the bed, then keep the balcony, if not then upgrade.
  13. CanadianBurger, It is great to see that you are on board. Enjoy your cruise, Geo
  14. How far a drive is it for you? Is it doable?
  15. I am so sorry that Kathi is going through all this.
  16. You said " I really need relaxation". If you go to Alaska you will have a long flight. You will also have a time change to adjust to., I think it is a 4 hour difference from EST. And the cruise is only one week. At least for me I would not find that relaxing.
  17. You are right food prices have gone up on HAL and in my local store.. HAL is now spending $2.15 more per day per person.(taken from your post). But from reading this thread, they have cut back on some food, maybe to keep the increase to $2.15 per day per person. Therefore, if they did not cut back the increase in food cost per day per person would be more. For me, when I get back to cruising I would rather not have the food cut backs and pay the extra per day to keep the quality up. PS. I can't eat lobster, so for me it is not about that. just the food in general.
  18. Hi CruiserBruce, I started cruising back in 1976. Every ship that I have been on has had a lobster night. I do recall , I believe it was on Home Lines, that they gave you the whole lobster. I also remember our first Princess cruise that our waiter came with a full tray of the tails and kept giving them out until PAX said no more at our table. I remember lobster claws at the buffet on HAL. Times have changed with cruising, some things for the better and others not such a good change. When I began to cruise, it was some thing really special. Food back then was one of the highlights of the cruise. And lobster night was part of it. Now, to me it seems to be going in the direction of the Staten Island ferry and a hot dog! But this is just me. By the way I can't eat lobster. Geo
  19. I don't mind music, but I don't like loud. I want to keep my hearing.
  20. Has any one found monkeys on their car in the parking lots?? https://www.cbsnews.com/miami/news/vervet-monkeys-fll-broward/
