I've heard this mentioned on these boards. So do tell...how much, how long, etc. Is it worth the $$? Can you book it ahead of time?

Eileen,
Not sure if you know, but the New Orleans Jazz Fest is happening at the same time we'll be there. Maybe we'll all have to meet for a drink the night before on Bourbon Street!

No, I didn't know...just knew something big was up! Had to beg borrow and steal to get a room (priced dearly, too!!). Tried their tourism board on-line, but didn't get further than Feb or so! New Orleans is a super city...not for long-term stays, but few nights! It would be great to meet beforehand, we did that in Vancouver for our trip to Alaska a couple months ago...the Jazz Fest is probably awesome, but not sure how the crowds will be!

okleisp.. Just tell her you are booking the intimate couples massage seminar just for some quality time and so you can learn to help her relax in the future when she is stressed.
LOL! A good technical reply. Thanks, Brian!

Wife is a sweet workaholic, getting her to vacation for any time is
difficult. The massage seminar sounds like just the right medicine.

John, We do the couples massage seminar on every cruise we take. It is very well done and have learned different techniques from each one. They also give out a handout of what you learned and you get to keep the new bottle of massage oil that you used during the seminar.

Eileen,
We booked at the Best Western Landmark in Metairie. Certainly not the fanciest, but they offer FREE shuttle service from the airport to hotel and from hotel to the French Quarter. And all for $89.50 per night. Brad and I probably aren't going to the Jazz Fest. We don't care much for the crowds. I'm sure we'll hear some jazz coming out of the doors of some lil place on Bourbon Street! I was in New Orleans about 22 years ago...sure looking forward to starting the vacation there!

I am Sandee and DH is Frank. He is not real interested in planning the cruise "tell me where and when and I'll show up" is his attitude . As far as Jazz Fest I can say I have found wonderful service from the Maison Charles hotel. Anyone stay there before?

Frank sounds like Brad. Although a few weeks out I know he'll be bopping around the computer looking stuff up!

We have a late flight in to New Orleans (using miles = lousy flight times) so we are staying at the airport Hilton (using points so hope we get a decent room). We plan on taking a taxi to the other Hilton in the morning and storing our bags there until we can board. I've been told that the fare to the port area from the airport is a fixed $28....

Has anyone been to Aruba? I've been looking at the Ports of Call page and the DePalm Island snorkle excursion sounded interesting. Not sure what we'll do in Grand Cayman....went there this past May (before the hurricane, thank goodness!) and enjoyed Stingray City. But we're looking for something else fun to do. Any suggestions????

Peg,

We went to Aruba March last year. Pretty much a desert island. We did a bus tour of the San Francisco light house and the natural bridge. After that we took a taxi to a hotel on the beach where I had arranged with the manager over the internet to let us use their facilities for the day (for free). They even supplied lockers for us to stow our extra stuff that we did not need for the beach. We had a great time just walking and wading down the huge beautiful beach. It also was nice being able to shower and change before going back to the ship.

Got the docs for the December cruise yesterday...Yahoo! And RCCL applied our $125 coupon from the Crown and Anchor club plus our TA realized that we are Gold members and he is going back to them for another $100 off as we booked a suite. And he informed us we will be Platinum members after this cruise and Diamond menbers after the April cruise.

It's only 26 more days for us to leave on this cruise as we are heading out of Oklahoma on the 2nd! We always leave in the late afternoon and drive to Terrell Texas and stop for the night. That puts us on Interstate 20 thirty or so miles east of Dallas and a straight shot to New Orleans.

Getting really pumped up now and been practising my crap game whenever I can.

Brian!
Lucky you...another cruise very soon! Brad and I are excited too as we are going to Kauai at the end of December for the New Years holiday. Looking forward to some R&R with no kids and soaking up that Hawaiian sun!
So, what hotel did you stay at on Aruba for the day? Would you do it again?

Peg, it was the Best Western Manchebo Beach Resort. How it all started was, we sent them an email explaining an interest in their all-inclusive hotel package (and we were). We told them we would be in Aruba one day with the cruise and asked for a tour of the facilities. They responded with an invitation to spend the entire day with them. Yes we would return, as the beach was so wonderful, we did not want to leave.....

Peg, What we liked most about the place was that it was Free! But seriously it was a nice facility which did have lockers and a place by the pool where you could shower off all the seawater and sand and change into dry clothes.

Manchebo beach is the most southern of the main Hotel beaches but it is ajoined with all the others: Punta beach, Eagle Beach, Hadikurari beach so you walk along the beautiful waves from one named beach to the next.

If you want to see the beach in 360 try this website :

Thanks for the link! Great pictures!! I think it may have helped us decide to just visit the beach. Doesn't look like the snorkling is any good there though.....

Can't wait for April, cold weather has descended on us suddenly...24 degrees this morning! Too many days to go, but the time really seems to be flying by as it's almost Turkey Day!! Time to break out the Christmas toys...anyone in Philly 12/4 is welcome to the party!!

Hump day, finally, hope all are having a good week!

Eileen,
At least the cold weather will get you in the Christmas mood! I am freezing here in 65 degree weather...brrrrrrrr.
I've been hard at work trying to diet so that I can relax on Turkey Day. Looking forward to all that yummy food!!! End of April seems so far away...well, at least I got Hawaii coming up to look forward to first!
