Transfer-Manhattan Pre Hotel-Ship & Taxi to LGA
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Residence Inn New York Manhattan/Midtown East
Good location, property was clean and staff was great. Great breakfast included. The best I’ve seen at a hotel, with lots of hot and cold choices. Only negative was - very noisy. You could hear every time someone opened and closed their door. Couldn’t hear traffic or anything outside (we were on 4th floor), just in the hallways.
Very similar to Epic (except bathrooms are back to normal...yea!). Balcony was extremely small. Cabin was More a nice size, but could use more storage areas. Luggage easily fits under the bed. Staff was great and very accommodating. The fastest embarkation ever. Within 30 minutes after we arrived at the pier we were eating at one of my favorites places, O’Sheehan’s. All of our luggage arrived by 2:30pm. Very easy and fast Walk Off Disembarkation.
Burn the Floor " Much like Dancing with the Stars’ (no fee)
The Second City " It’s OK. Very similar routines as seen on Epic (no fee)
Rock of Ages " If you saw the movie you will LOVE this show. There must have been 20 performers and all were amazing. Some older people didn’t like it, as there are some raunchy scenes. (no fee)
Magician " He was OK. Great show for kids. (no fee)
Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy - $40. pp I didn’t go, but heard rave reviews from lots of guests.
Lots and lots of other venues for music, and what we saw were great.
Fire & Ice " A two-member singing duo and they were amazing. They did a lot of tribute shows: Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Motown. They played at various venues around the ship, and well worth the time. (no fee)
The ropes course is great and the walk the plank’ looked like fun There’s even a little ropes course for young kids. (no fee)
Mini golf was popular. Carlos Bake Shop (The Cake Boss on TV) has a shop onboard and even offers a few decorating lessons for a fee.
We didn’t do any specialty dining as there were so many dining venues all over the ship. Even little hot dog stands set up around the ship. The buffet was never overly crowded and the food was hot. Great pizza and O’Sheehans never disappoints.
We had a noon flight, so we took a taxi from the pier to LGA. $44.00 + tip. Less
