  1. After involuntarily taking a year off from cruising, I'm really longing to get back on the water. How about you?
  2. I'm surprised to hear that people are reporting bad experiences with this operation. Yes, the lot is next to a storage facility, but the lot itself appears to be gated and locked, as their website claims. My own experiences (I've used them for seven cruises in the past) have been good. I am a tiny bit skeptical of "Our posters who live in Bayonne do not recommend parking there." If they live in Bayonne, why would they be paying $14 a day to park anywhere? But in any case, I will take your information under advisement. At the very least, if I were to use them again, I'll probably spend the cruise worried about my car.
  3. I love parking at Bayonne Cruise Parking. It's about a mile from the terminal, with a free shuttle (about a five minute ride) and luggage assistance. Best of all, it's only $14 a day (parking at the cruise terminal garage is $22 a day). I'm not a paid spokesperson, just a happy repeat customer. https://www.bayonnecruiseparking.com/
  4. I had The Key for Anthem of the Seas, March 23rd sailing. There was a priority Key check-in line, it went very quickly. There was no priority boarding. Once on the ship, The Key had a little check-in table, easily located. There, I was given a folder containing the details of Key perks for that voyage and Voom log-on instructions, and directed to the Theater if I wanted to drop off my carryon, and then to go to my choice of Chops or Jamie's Italian for The Key lunch. I went to Chops, waited almost no time at all on a fast-moving line, and was seated. Wait staff was quick and efficient. and my lunch (I had the filet) was excellent. Rooms were ready at 1:30, there was no priority treatment there. There were sections of the theater roped off for Key guest access for all shows I attended. Port debark was quick at the ports. Final debark was blindingly fast - escorted past the very long line (I almost felt guilty), whisked to the Key luggage pickup section, and was through and out waiting for my ride in a total of seven minutes from the time I had finished breakfast. I did not take advantage of any of the special times for onboard activites. Was the program worth it to me? Yes, I think so. I don't feel ripped off, in any case. Will I get it on my next cruise? No. Now that I've had that experience, I don't need to have it again.
