I trudge on through the park, past the buskers and souvenir stands, hotdog and pretzel carts, skateboarders, young families with kids, dog walkers, horse-drawn carriage riders, gymnasts-two guys had a large crowd of 100 or so watching them do tumbling (on concrete!!) and breakdancing. it was all going on when I reached the calm of the fountain where a young soprano was singing opera songs in the large underground tunnel. It was like being at a 10 ring Circus.


There were 3 handsome young couples getting married and photographed here and lots of happy relaxed faces-just the best place to be.

I write every day until the review is done. No lapses. No coming to a halt unfinished. I made a promise we will always remember-no retreat, baby, no surrender. I drop song lyrics in here and there and award magnificent prizes to those with the first correct answer which I somehow forget to mail to the lucky winners. Let's forgive and forget.


WHAT"S UP AHEAD?


I'm glad you asked!


I have a massive amount of material- 6 cameras remember? And Princess Patters
Excursions in every port
FOOD PORN-I think every meal consumed is photographed (and eaten)
SHIP PORN for the boat nerds and that includes me
HECTOR SINGS! Yes the singing headwaiter appears in a video or two
FOG PORN!
We meet Needtocruisesoon AKA Ron from California
LOBSTER PORN
Photos from all the shows we went to-Princess raises the bar
New York City in photos and video
Some Fall foliage
and I don't know what else....


Stay tuned!

Looking forward to enjoying your trip report. My husband and I cruised on the Emerald Princess in 2013, starting in NYC and ending in Quebec City.
We had a wonderful trip! It was our last big trip before he was diagnosed with cancer, so it has very special meaning to me. Can't wait to read your report and see all your pictures. Thanks for sharing.

I hope you enjoyed my Country cant wait to see what you did there. I am wondering Peggy's Cove was one of your adventures and I'll ne patient to see if it was, and if not you need to come back.


Also I forgot the Billy Joel lyric NY state of Mind on your way to NY. Not waiting for any pillow mints or any prizes your review is a prize in itself to me.


Pleasure is mine Norris and proud to call you my friend as well

Scott, we did see Peggy's Cove and I got some good photos there in our all too brief visit.
Good catch on the Billy Joel lyric in my Facebook photo!

45 minutes after leaving the hotel I was wondering where Carol was so I texted her. She had taken a wrong entrance to the park after the bus and was walking away from the fountain and was now too far adrift to join me.

I heard a Chinese man who comes there to play one of those one string instruments and each time I have heard him I stop what I am doing (usually nothing) and listen to him. Very moving sound. I always have to give him a tip. I have some video of my time in the park and captured him on it but I have yet to watch it and upload to Youtube. I'll get to that tomorrow no doubt.

What's to come after the park?

Well we enjoy a nap and then go to an early dinner with some old and dear NY friends at our favorite Indian restaurant. Then sleep. Then wake and pack up to go to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal and then we'll start the Regal portion of this GSJ.

More park meantime....

The Boathouse restaurant-a great lunch spot with a view. Lots of boaters rowing on the lake today but for some reason I didn't photograph them.









Time to head back up the steps and retrace my steps....


Although the sky looks menacing at this point it didn't rain. (I exaggerated the clouds for drama) The Essex House Hotel in the photo was our former New York hotel of choice but has changed hands so many times in the past 20 years and lost it's appeal although the location was fantastic with it's views of the park.

I'm so glad you're doing a review of this particular cruise because I've recently made reservations for the Oct 13 to 20 7 day New England Canada Cruise in 2018, which I haven't really gotten excited about yet. Partially because it's still a year away, but mostly because I'm really, really excited about leaving this Sunday on the 15 day round trip San Francisco to Hawaii cruise on the Grand. When that cruise is over, and I'm feeling depressed, I'll have the New England Canada cruise to get excited about. Like you say, Always Be Planning.

Hi Norris,

I have been eagerly awaiting this review as I can't wait for your take on the Regal...I remember you being hesitant on the Royal class. We will be on the Royal (never sailed this class before) in November 2018 to the ABC Islands.

Big wheels keep on turning....CCR

Welcome back,
Norris
Norris, I can't wait for the rest of it, especially your impression of the ship. Our son decided to join us for this cruise which pleases me to no end! This will be our first time to the Caribbean. Unfortunately, this will be our last family cruise as my husband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer... But just the thought of the cruise makes him feel better! I will be sharing your wonderful photos with him.

Thank you again for all your hard work and hopefully, one day, we will meet!

Well well well, what do we have here? Another cruise review by Norris Adair! I have been going through withdrawals for months and now I will finally get my fix. Looking forward to one of your great expositions.

Finally another Norris review! I've been waiting patiently for this one since the Regal is my favorite Princess ship. I've poured myself a wee Jameson and settled in for a nice long read.
