  1. Thank you - that is good information. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. Do you think we would be better of staying the night in NY and flying to Miami the next day. We are sailing on Symphony out of Miami so have to be there on the Saturday. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. Thank you so far - have a good nights rest. I’m off to work. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Not sure what Schwartz Travel is? But Empire State Building Times Square etc. but also if time Wall Street Area. Anything is a bonus and better than sitting in an airport for hours on end. Will have another look at JFK air flights, just thought that as we are only flying to Miami so go domestic. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. Will keep a watch out on an development of the Bayonne Ferry. Lower Manhattan and Midtown are some of the areas we are interested in. Maybe HOHO bus would be a good idea. We figure we will see the Statue of Liberty on the Ferry trip. Looking more towards LGA flights as there are more to Miami and if we don’t go to late - not such a bad price. What do you think of my way of getting to LGA is that reasonable- hate being stuck in traffic wondering if we are going to make it. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. That’s very helpful information. Our ship gets in on 27th Sept. There is just the 2 of us and able body to manoeuvre luggage. Thought about getting either a taxi or Uber to St George Ferry terminal and catching the Straten Island ferry. Pick up a taxi after the ferry to store our luggage. Then about 2.00 pick up luggage and catch ferry from Peir 11 Wall St to Astonia and then get an Uber from there to LGA. Does that sound doable or is there flaws in this idea. I know we won’t have long to look around but we are good walkers. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Aussie needs flight timing info

    I’v set up a new thread with my questions. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. Hi we are Aussies cruising into Port Liberty on a Friday in Sept 2019. We need to fly to Miami later that afternoon. We would like to have a bit of a look around NYC. If our flight is at 6pm what time would we need to leave NYC? What is the best way, with luggage to get to NYC from Port Liberty. What are the ‘do not miss’ sights that are doable in one day? Which airport would you suggest we fly out of to go to Miami? Any help would be great? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Aussie needs flight timing info

    Hi Karen, We are the other Aussie on this cruise. Also starting to look at what flights might be available, and from what airport and how long it takes to get there. We need to fly to Miami the afternoon of disembark to pick up a cruise the next day. Having never been to NYC, where thinking of having a few hours there to look around then fly later in the afternoon. Thankfully ours is only a 3 hr flight. We need to work out how to get into NYC and how long we will need to get to the airport in the afternoon ? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. Can I also add - people not washing their hand or using sanitizer- spreading gastro and virus. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Low Carb Dieting

    Sorry my cruise to NZ was not April, it was mid November.

    Low Carb Dieting

    Hi - haven’t written for a while. Had a great cruise to NZ in mid April and did really well with my eating. My drinking - not so good. But overall not to bad. Then came the Christmas celebrations and I certainly over indulged. So back on track again now as also back at work (which helps me stay in routine). The first few days are hard, but getting back into cooking LCHF. We have a cruise booked for mid August Vancouver to Alaska on Celebrity Millennium, so want to drop about 2 inches of my waist before then. Eggs will become my best friends again. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas and a Joyous New Year. Now it time to get back to Low Carb. Who’s with me? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Low Carb Dieting

    I love reading your posts, and how well you are doing. Do you think it is going to be difficult on the cruise to stay LCHF? Any advise you can give me, would be appreciated. I have about 10kgs left to loose and it's coming off supper slow. Only lost 1.5kg this month. But at least it's a loss. Have decided to only weigh monthly now as the scales were going up and down to much. I am concerned about our cruise in November as I don't want to undo all my hard work.

    Low Carb Dieting

    Wow, just bought a new formal dress to wear on next cruise for formal night (long red halter neck) in size 14. It's a little tight but am going to loose more weight before cruise in November, so should look great. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
