Room service is free, 24 hours per day. The wine list is pretty good.

The Waldorf, St. Regis? Are they good hotels? HELLO???? Maybe a few days in New York isn't such a good idea for you.

As for onboard activities, if there's a spelling bee, I would suggest you avoid it.

I'm sure that was meant as a joke...(at least I took it that way), but there is a tinsy bit of truth mixed in there somewhere...

Sorry--I really didn't mean to offend you or to be nasty. Have a wonderful and relaxing cruise.

For an alternate hotel, try the Hotel Giraffe, a "boutique" hotel down on Park Avenue South and 25th St. or so. A quieter area than the others, but accessible to everything. Sort of an elegant minimalist decor. The place has a nice website too.

By the way, when composing an e-mail (or otherwise using a keyboard), you'll find that the key labeled "Shift" generates the capital letters.

With 18-month twins, lisab likely doesn't have a hand free for the shift key!! Have a wonderful cruise. You will love it!

Thanks
The hotel sounds great and will check out the web site. I hope that you enjoy which ever cruise you are booked for.
P.S.
In the UK we have a key marked Caps Lock...... and whats a spelling bee?

I found an amazing depth and breadth of wines at all price ranges from $20-1500
so you will have no problem finding one you will like...check out the Chilean and Australian wines for great taste and great bargins.

We bought wine in Spain but when we brought it to the table the wine steward told us he would have to charge a corkage fee of $15...fyi. Uncork the bottle and keep it out of sight and you have no problem...but if you put it on the table they will charge you.


Still reveling in the 12 day cruise of the Med...from which I returned back last Sunday....
happy to answer any other questions.

For the record, the average age on the Med cruise was deceased.
We were among the youngest (except for children) and it was 2/3 British passengers.

Default Re:deceased!!

just completed the 'Jewels of Iberia' cruise myself and you are so right about the living dead!
felt like we were in a nursing home some of the time.
my 11 yr old son was well catered for in 'The Zone' but there wasnt much for my 16yr old daughter.
we did attend the dancing lessons and that really improved our dancing skills, to acceptable! but as the host dancers were all 60+ all credit to my girl!!

she couldnt have a drink, (although the first 2 nights she did!), she couldnt go in the casino, although nobody ever bothered when she did. would have been great if there had been a few more teenagers onboard, just to help bring the average age down to 100!!

still a great time was had by all

Hi, You don't say which ship, but since there has been mention of New York I'll assume you're sailing on QM2.

I don't have a restaurant wine list but it was fairly extensive. The following, "By the Glass" list from Sir Samuel's (wine bar) should give you some idea.

White
Petaluma Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills 2001
Mersault, Louis Latour 2000
Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, Napa Valley 2001
Amelia Chardonnay, Concha y Toro, Aconcagua 2001
Hirsch Gruner Veltliner, Heiligenstein Kamptal 2001
Hattenheimer Pfaffenberg, Reisling Spatlese, Rheingau 1997
Chateau Olivier, Pessac-Leognan 2001
Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley 2001
Condrieu, La Galopine, Delas Freres 2001
Swanson Pinot Grigio, Napa Valley 2002

Rose
Tavel, Paul Jaboulet, Rhone Valley 2002

Red
E&E Black Pepper Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2000
Beringer, Private Reserve, Napa Valley 1998
Clarendon Hills, Old Vine Grenache, Mclaren Vale 1998
Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Chateau de Mont-Redon 2001
Don Melchor, Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley 1999
Chateau Musar, Beka'a Valley, Lebanon 1995
Chateau Olivier, Graves 1986
Chateau Talbot, St. Julien 1995
Gevrey-Chambertin, Louis Latour 1996
"J" Wine Company, Pinot Noir, Russian River 2001
Chianti Classico Riserva Tenute Marchese Antinori 1998
Ridge Vinyards Zinfandel, Lytton Springs 2001
Barolo, Bricco Rocche Brunate, Ceretto 1996

I sampled a Penfolds "The Grange" one day when a young man at our table bought one at lunch. They carried three different vintages and unfortunately I don't remember which one I tried. It was absoloutley divine! Perhaps you could do me a favour and check the vintages and prices, just out of curiosity?

Regards, Colin.
