This will be our 6th cruise with various lines. Usually sail from Florida.
We are going on your cruise on Oct 14th **edited to remove commerical reference, another cruise online group like cruisemates.
We are about 50 strong and adding and also associate with each other onboard. We also have a Roll Call that will be used to organize a Meet & Greet onboard scheduled for the first day at sea.
To answer your questions abit:
See: Sightsee NYC Ground Zero, Downtown, Midtown, Theater, St Patricks etc.. If at a Hotel, ask your front desk for books and folders about NYC Tourism.
Weather: We are experiencing a cool period at this time and hope for a good day for sailing. Also we are monitoring the weather in the Atlantic & Caribbean for the hurricane possible threats. But for the local weather we will watch from the 1st to the 8th for 8days and 15days forecasts. So we have abit of time to wait.
Heat Up: We very much hope by the next day at see no later then the second day. We generally see a different the first day at sea unless weather in the Atlantic changes that.
We are celebrating our 30th Wed Annv & my parents 62nd Wed Annv.
