  1. taxifarefinder says 46.22 LGA to Brooklyn terminal and uber x is 49.67 for the same trip
  2. The point in NYC is $$$$. All of my friends/family who live or play in the city use uber or other ride sharing apps to reduce cost
  3. You can watch the SI ferry (and other ferries) from the harbor facing views of the Financial Marriott. SI ferry is also free and a good way to see the harbor if you are in the area. You can walk to it from the Marriott
  4. The cost of an uberX from New York Marriott Financial Center to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal comes up as $30.18 which is far superior to taking a cab to the ferry then boat then walking with luggage IMHO!! An uberX from the Brooklyn Cruise terminal to Times Square comes up at 55.80. Cabs are not a problem from the Financial Marriott.....doorman will call for you or you can uber.
  5. I am Lifetime Platinum with Marriott and have stayed in most of the properties in NYC. When I am going to the city for fun (rather than work) l like to go to the Marriott Marquis in TS. While it is in TS, it's also very centrally located and no busier/noisier than other midtown properties. This Marriott always recognizes Bonvoy members and I always get upgraded here, sometimes to a suite. Also, the Club at this property is one of the best in the country IMHO. I also like the Marriott Financial Center but if you are going to the city to be a tourist, you may prefer a midtown location.
  6. What will it cost you if you miss your flight?? If you don't have any kind of status with your airline you may not get anything......knowing this will give you the answer, I think!!
  7. I think your choice comes down to what sightseeing that you wish to do in the half day that you have. From the Marriott Financial, you can walk to Battery Park, 911 Memorial, Native American Museum, and many others. My fav spot for lunch is Eataly, right across from the 911 Memorial/Museum. Brooklyn Marriott is also great......I had to stay there once for 6 weeks for a job contract. This location will require more time if you want to do anything in the city which will limit you since you only have a half day. Good luck!
  8. <https://www.cruzely.com/using-uber-lyft-brooklyn-cruise-terminal/> As a frequent business traveller to NYC, I can see that some cabs would be picky about where they want to go from the city. I've had some pull away when I give them destinations that are opposite direction to where they want to go, especially when close to quitting time. That downtown Marriott is a good resource as they have guests travelling everywhere and they have a great business set up.Their companies for car service are very reliable. I have never had uber refuse a destination. They don't even know the destination until you get in the car. Your trip to Brooklyn will be on a Saturday and you won't be competing with the crowds of week days. We are staying at this Marriott again in September and taking one of their cars to JFK. Also great views of SOL from this hotel!!
  9. We often stay at the Marriott Downtown Financial Center. They can arrange car service for you to any of the airports/terminals,etc.......very reliable. We have also taken uber from this area to JFK.....not an issue SOL = Statue of Liberty!! LOL!
  10. I would pick the arrival on the 27th at LGA and then go directly by cab/uber to a hotel in the city (Manhatten)......at least you will be well rested on the 28th and able to watch the sail away with the SOL. You could then plan at least some sightseeing before you go to the ship. Get a hotel with 12 noon checkout and then cab/uber to Brooklyn. Pick a hotel in the city that your budget can handle
  11. Thanks to all for your input. I read and read and read about Pacific Princess so I feel lots more informed and I don't think that I want to do a long cruise on it.I think we would both love the smallness of it but the TV set up and the food choices just fell short for us. I think I would like to try something shorter on it maybe out of FLL. We are now looking at a R/T to Hawaii from San Diego on HAL for 17 days in late 2020.
  12. I actually looked at one by ResMed in my doc's office and while they are smaller, you still have the tubing and the mask/pillow..........also some people report noise with these travel CPAPs. Since we always arrive 3 or more days early for a cruise, I don't worry about going without for the duration of the cruise. I will re-look at the travel ones because that would be helpful. One of these days I'll just retire then I don't have to worry!!LOL!
  13. We take the adapters plus a 3 in 1 extension since we both have CPAPS. This image is from behind the bed on Royal Princess in a minisuite
