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 .

Past Passenger Discounts for N...

By Jo Cunningham

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity. P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen all offer less discounts now than then used to.MSC on the other hand, despite being one of Europe’s largest cruise lines are keen to increase their British customer base and are extending their loyalty scheme to non past passengers too.MSC have always had one of the best past passenger scheme...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
