It's my husband and I one year anniversary and we decided to take a cruise on Carnival Glory departing out of Boston on July 14th.
Getting there: In celebration of our anniversary we headed up to Boston on the 12th. My dad was so gracious enough to drive us into NYC from Long Island to catch Amtrak at Penn Station. Being from NY traffic is a normal way of life but boy did we cut it close to our departure time of 11am, only to find out that the train had been delayed by 45minutes. The train ride to Boston was pleasant and uneventful. I love the fact that Amtrak offers free wifi on that particular train. (Train #172)
Hotel: We decided to try our luck and figure out the subway system or shall I say bus/tram. We took the silver line to the airport where we hopped on the free Hyatt shuttle to the Hyatt Boston Harbor hotel. We booked this hotel via Priceline name your own price. This option is a must do of traveling to Boston during the summer it can save you a few bucks. We won a bid of $125night normal prices start at $189 a night. Quick and easy check-in. We had a king suite 3rd floor city view. Hotel room is pleasantly appointed and they offer a bunch of free extras available on request. The hotel offers one free hour of internet service or $12.95 for 24hours. Mom always said "you won't know till you ask" so we asked for complimentary 24 hours of service and the front desk agent (Elaine) gave us the password.
