We stayed there in march, hotel nice but service not so good resturant we tried to have a meal waited over an hour you can go into manhattan it was 60 dollars dont know if you are staying there when you come back but we should have had a room but there wasnt one available they also lost a piece of luggage that went missing from the lobby and we are still dealing with the hotel to claim on there insuracne. dont know if your transfers are included ours where but it took 2 hours for a little 12 seater to come and pick approx 30 people and there luggage I wld get a cab its only a few dollars. apppart from the begining and end we had a great time ship is great lots to do and the ice show is a must .

Have you got time to price up changing your booking to cruise only with your own flights (Virgin Atlantic are reasonable) we love Royal Caribbean cruises but recently took them on re them opting for cheaper airport hotels pre cruise and lost. Basically we only ever book cruise only now as independant flights allow you to pre reserve seats and we can pick good quality downtown hotels. Believe me the transfers as mentioned below are organised chaos and the extra dollars for a taxi are worth it. Plus if you are smack bang in the middle of Manhatten in a hotel you are between JFK and Cape liberty and can walk most places. We are on a 12 noght Explorer cruise from NY in Jan and have paid £1200 for cruise only, £800 for flights and have the top Barclay hotel reserved at £160 per night but there are cheaper places. Tripadvisor is worth a look if you choose this option. We have obviously factored in the cab costs and booked flights early on the way out to allow more time in NY plus we have opted for 2 nights pre cruise. Enjoy the cruise we can't wait.

The description was just Batu Caves and City tour full day.We set off 8.30 ish and had an excellent tour guide which gave us so much information,and arrived at Batu Caves in no time at all. Batu Caves are a series of caves within a limes...
