  1. I am hoping someone can provide hotel ideas. Normally we stay on International (Gilchmer Realty) in Elizabeth near the mall but that does not seem to be a good location for accessing the PATH to the city. There are 2 of us sailing July 20 2020 on the Empress of the Seas out of Bayonne. We will be taking Amtrak from the DC area to Newark on Saturday the 18th. We will need a room with 2 beds for 2 nights. We are flexible concerning hotel chain - I prefer Marriott properties, BFF likes Hilton. I would like to stay below $250 per night but also know NY/NJ is pricey. I am thinking staying in NJ because getting to the port on a Monday morning would be easier. We have both visited New York City many times for work and vacation so the 911 memorial is the one thing we want to see and plan to go to the memorial and museum on the 19th. I need to buy tickets online 6 months in advance. I saw the information on this thread and read the sticky that the PATH on the weekend will require using a Ferry. Thanks in Advance for Any Advice
  2. They did when we sailed the Summit Nov 2nd
  3. As of about 10 days ago Uber can pickup at the airport. We cruised Celebrity last week out of San Juan.
  4. We had one of the forward suites. It was different and unique. I would not do it again. I love sitting on my balcony relaxing and do wake view often. The forward facing suite was very windy when at sea and seemed to bake in the sun. We also had an access door for a public balcony area that seemed to slam way too often. I am booked on empress again for next year. The OS was more than I wanted to spend given we are docked almost the entire trip - otherwise it would have been one of the aft ones
