  1. I hope you are back on board and with the whole range of ages!! I have no cruises scheduled, but I'm a positive person and can't wait to cruise again. All the best to you. 🌊 🚢
  2. We really enjoyed the TZ (😀) walk, although it was of course a hot day. Luckily, we started in the morning. It is 3.5 miles each way. It was busy. As you may know, the walkers are on one side and the bikers right next to them with just a painted line in between. It really should have been made a bit wider in our opinion. But, it is great to have. If you can go on a weekday, that might be better. And wait for a cooler day. Thanks for the tip on Sleepy Hollow / Rockwood.
  3. We had the same experience. We have some state parks 30 minutes from our house that we had no clue about and discovered during the last few months. We also walked over the Tappan Zee (Mario Cuomo) Bridge in NY yesterday. There is a new walk and bike "path" that recently opened up. For those discussing national parks, last summer we visited Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone. Also stayed a few days in Jackson Hole. Loved it. (We actually started in Salt Lake City and drove up from there). Particularly loved Jackson Hole and Grand Teton. We have been enjoying the Long Island NY beaches (nothing new there for us!) a bit lately and hope to head south sometime soon to visit some other US locales and beaches. Enjoy, everyone. Make the most of whatever you can do. 🏖️🌲🚗
  4. We are about to start the 4th of July weekend. Please stop the political discussions, whether you think they are political or not. Here is to future cruising! 🚢 ♥️🤍💙 Cheers! 🍹
  5. Best to you all, our North American neighbors. Here is to future cruising for us all. 🛳️ 🍹♥️🤍
  6. Martinique started requiring passports September of last year Thank you for that update.
  7. I have been to Martinique multiple times on cruises and never had to show a passport (same with Antigua). The only island I ever needed one for (again, while on a cruise) was when we took an excursion to St. Bart's. Had to take it with us and present upon entry to St. Bart's. That has been my experience. Things can always change. Enjoy.
  8. Love Nashville! Was supposed to be flying there later this month for a Kenny Chesney concert and mini-vacation. Oh well, flight and concert cancelled. 😭🎵 Here is to happier times ahead! Hope you get to Nashville, fandash.
  9. I can relate to this one. I have never done so many jigsaw puzzles in my life as during the last few months. Glad you found one that was somewhat cruise-related. 🧩🛳️
  10. This whole thing is funny. A woman I know extremely well is almost 65 and runs 30 miles a week. I think she will be fine on a cruise and the cruise line will happily accept her money. 🍹 May I also say God Bless America (and the rest of the world) and here is to the end of the pandemic and happy times ahead! May we all cruise together in peace. See you on a ship sometime, somehow! 🛳️
  11. So many great memories. Particularly loved excursion to the beautiful Jost Van Dyke, BVI. And for today, Memorial Day, I honor my uncle (who I never knew) killed-in-action in the Battle of the Bulge in 1945. 🖤
  12. I'm surprised. It was awful on our Nov 3 Escape cruise and seeped to open areas outside the casino. We actually mentioned it in our post-cruise survey as it was probably the worst we ever experienced.
  13. For us (just off Escape about 6 days ago) it was quite nice and complimentary, as noted. It included freshly made omelettes. Many did not seem aware of it. Enjoy.
  14. Actually, on our November 3rd Escape cruise from NYC, we heard a woman comment that the parking was full by the time they got to the pier (I don't know the time they arrived). I would think if you are arriving in the morning you should be fine, but I'm guessing. We arrived before 10am. Perhaps others can report how late they arrived and still got pier parking with multiple ships departing.
  15. We were in Bermuda a few days ago. We had a lot of rain (but it was not cold outside temperature-wise). On our one sunny day, plenty of people were in the water. I think you will be OK for snorkeling based on what I observed. (Probably more of a personal preference .... if you only like summer-like hot days for snorkeling, then no.)
  16. I can relate. At restaurants, I often order steak or other meat and my husband typically salmon. They always want to give me the salmon.
  17. njhorseman, thanks for all the helpful info you have been posting. I have been to Bermuda before, but can not remember whether there are free "transfers" between some buses? Does that exist?
  18. Hi, 9am is tons better than 5pm which is when we are arriving (same cruise - 7 days from NYC on Escape). So we are arriving 8 hours later. We are clearly going to live with it, but disappointing. Thanks to all who responded.
  19. 🚶‍♀️🚶‍♀️🚶‍♀️ That's you walking. Sending lots of good wishes.
  20. In any case we are going but not sure I find 46 hours close enough to 3 full days.
  21. Thanks, graphicguy. We have been there multiple times and will enjoy, but something is "off" .... normally should arrive much earlier. Happy cruising.
  22. I find it interesting that NCL advertises 7 day Bermuda cruises out of NYC as having "3 full days in Bermuda" (radio ads in NYC area) ..... we are on one in November and it arrives in Bermuda at 5pm one day and leaves Bermuda 3pm two days later (less than 48 hours). We will enjoy ourselves anyway but it is certainly not 3 full days.
  23. We also swear by Bonine. In our case, we take once/day, and that works for us. Enjoy, all. 🛳️
