We just booked an 8 day cruise on the Carnival Splendor...We have not ever cruised on Carnival previously but the price was right and we will get to be in New York for three days previously. We cruise from NYC to the Bahamas and return.
We paid $445 pp including all fees taxes etc. Plus we got round trip airfare from Mexico City to NYC for $340 again including all fees taxes etc. It will be a bit nippy in NYC.Oh Well!
We are looking at $94 per night at a 4* hotel in Hell[s Kitchen, which is close to the terminal. Now that we are retired we have to watch our pennies so this will have to do as a cruise ship fix.
