Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by smith (08 Feb 09 12:01)

Unfortunately this terminal is one of the worst I have been through, it is in the middle of a demolition area, the Russians apparently bought the surrounding land intending to develop it but with the state of current Russian finances this looks quite a way off any proposed plans. The site itself is quite a way from the hotels and awkward to get to if you're planning to drive there although I have heard that when you get there parking is a reasonable operation but a bit expensive. The ships dock about a mile from the Arrivals Buildings and although things do flow easily with a shuttle to and from the ships when it messes up it can be awful. Somehow disembarkation seems less prone to foul ups. When you leave the docks you can get some great views across at the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan so there are some pluses but in my opinion well outweighed by the site and its position. ....... Neil.

Thanks for that, I hope we get a good day. I think our hotel is quite near. Was the cruise on RCL worth it? Helen & BoB.

Yes it was a great cruise, thanks. My hotel was quite near too but it still cost an arm and a leg as we didn't have transfers having booked our own flights and hotel. ,,,,Neil .
