  1. Hi,

    This will be our first cruise on the East Coast (so excited)!


    I am looking for reliable transportation. We are flying into EWR and spending our first five nights in NYC, then to Cape Liberty and from there to EWR. I know the only place I will find my answer, or answers, is here on this board.


    Could you all please suggest what, and definitely what not, to do for transportation?


    Thanks for your help!


  2. We are in the process of making dinner reservations for our 3/7/16 cruise on Anthem. All the restruants say that dinner lasts only 30 minutes, even the formal Grande. How is this possible? We have been on approx. 30 cruises and dinner always lasts approx. 2 hours. Am I missing something? I do NOT want to be rushed!!:confused:


    Prayers to all aboard, we have been through similar where waves came over our 8th floor balcony on the Granduer. Safe travels back home to possible snow. A/C is already flooded.


    Please post how it was when you get back! I'm sailing in October and am confused with the prepaid packages (do I get to choose the restaurant, or do they?). I'm considering the 5 night prepaid package..

    I don't think dinner lasts 30 minutes, but that reservations are staggered every 30 minutes to allow the wait staff to staggered their serving, i.e., not having everyone sit at the same time so that they can be serving drinks to a table, appetizers to another table and the entree to the next table. Makes for a better flow.

    Please let me/us know which restaurants you'd recommend!


    Bon Voyage!


  3. On the times I've used RCCL transfers there is a rep from the cruise line in the baggage area. Collect your bags and meet up with them. After everyone they're waiting for is ready to go they take you to the bus. In Barcelona they took the luggage, so you didn't have to drag it with you.


    Hope that helps! If you have more questions, just call RCCL!

  4. WOW... I'm speechless! The time you took to write all of that... I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Thanks to you I have some answers to questions I needed!

    I have already changed some show times and was considering a specialty restaurant at sail away on the first night. Your picture of sail away made me realize I don't want to miss it by being stuck inside!

    Again, what an awesome review! Best I've ever read!

    When you do the Caribbean let me know, we'd love to go with you!


    Thanks so much again!!! We sail October 4th and I'm even more excited than I was before I read this!


  5. I wanted to let you know that if you are clients with Bank Of America and have a Checking/Savings Account you can order Foreign Currency using your Checking Account. If you order less than $1,000 then you will be charged $7.50 by FedEx 2 Day Shipping. I recommend that you order your currency early so you have it for your trip.


    You can choose to have it shipped to either your Home but your local branch is safer as you need to be home when FedEx comes. If you chose to have it sent to your local branch they will sign it for you.


    You can mix currencies as well. If you order the currency at your local branch you will pay $40 for the processing fee but this is waived if you order it online.


    Bank Of America will also "Buy Back" your currency as well. You can see the rates before you hit the "Submit Button".


    For those of you who have tried this service please give me your experiences with it. My Father and I are using it for the first time for our upcoming cruise.


    Its a great way to have local currency to start the trip especially if you are arriving on a Sunday or are just plain tired to find an ATM etc.


    I know this is an old thread, but how did this work for you?

    What/where did you end up getting your Euros?
