    Silversea Water Cooler: Welcome! Part Five

    Thanks to you both for the suggestions...…….I will look at all of them...…...so closer to Ground Zero but further away from Broadway? I really want to see a show...…..I am guessing whichever hotel I choose can hail me a cab if needed

    Silversea Water Cooler: Welcome! Part Five

    Good morning Coolers......well, booked my flights to the Big Apple and now need to find a hotel. The Michelangelo is supposed to be really nice and good location too. I will check their website and look on Trip Advisor. I want to go see a show too and see the 9/11 Museum and go to Ground Zero. My flight gets in at 1:30 the day before the cruise so I should be able to do those 3 things (hopefully). Have my Saturday errands to do...….go to the bank, have to stop at the Xfinity store (just easier to talk to them in person than going through x amount of people on the phone)…...need to see a jeweler about a chain I have and see if they can fix the clasp. Have a good day everyone.

    Booked my first AZAMARA CRUISE!

    Good morning and thanks for the replies. Hey Phil, hope you are doing well. Yes, I looked at the newbie thread, thanks! Very helpful tips to be sure. Just signed up for the Meet & Mingle too! It said it was not there last night but this morning it let me register. So that is done:) I booked my flight already flying into JFK and now looking for a hotel. I have seen a good recommendation for The Michelangelo and it is in a good location. Now the waiting begins
  4. Hi Carol, thanks for the reply...…..I really want to do 2 things.....see a show and the 9/11 Museum.....are they both within walking distance? (depending on the theater?) I will look at the Michaelangelo more closely.

    New York hotels

    Sailing out of Manhattan in April...…..looking at The Kimpton Ink48, The Lexington and The Michealangelo……. Thoughts from anyone?
  6. Hey Carol, long time...….I have not sailed from the NE in a long time...….but I am flying into JFK in April for a cruise out of Manhattan...….going on Azamara. Looking for a hotel in NYC...…..I know you normally ask about a budget.....for this trip...…. say between 350.00-400.00...…...I know I can hail a cab at the airport...…..do you have any hotel recommendations? I was on Trip Advisor but I know this thread is probably just as helpful....need a room for one night pre-cruise. Thanks!!!
  7. Hi folks, just booked my first Azamara cruise...…...going on Journey in April for 11 nights...…...NYC to NYC...…..sails to Bermuda and Charleston! After many years of sailing Celebrity, more recently I have sailed Silversea (past 2 cruises were with them). I love the small ship experience and as a solo cruiser hoping Azamara gives me that same welcoming feel to it. I know many of the names on this forum (Hi Phil)….and any points of interest or friendly words of advice would be welcomed from me too. Now I have to book my flight and hotel room!

    Silversea Water Cooler: Welcome! Part Five

    Hi JP, I booked it,,,I have been to Bermuda and to Charleston before..…..love both places! And the ship sails out of Manhattan and yes I have to fly to NY...…...no big deal.....after all I have been flying across the pond for the past couple of years LOL I will go a day early and stay in Manhattan...…..I keep thinking about the savings on the cruise compared to what my recent one cost...…….I can splurge and stay at 5 star hotel in the Big Apple When I sailed to Bermuda on Celebrity we docked in the Navy Yard. I saw a roll call for the cruise and now I need to tell them I booked it. The folks sound pretty nice so far so hoping for a good cruise!

    Silversea Water Cooler: Welcome! Part Five

    Good morning, I may be booking a cruise with Azamara...…..found a fun itinerary in April and a very good deal (especially for a solo)….....11 nights out of New York called Bermuda and the South (stops in Charleston!)…...less than 4500.00! I know they are not Silversea but I know the ship is small (which I love LOL)…….anyway, I have a cabin on hold...….just need to see that the time is open on the vacation calendar at work!

    Hi JP, we have a Trader Joe's and to be honest, I am just not that impressed. We have a store called "Fresh Market" and I like it a lot more than TJ's. Nice to have choices
