Hi Everyone, Thanks Karen for strenthing out the $10.00 a day in my very excited and curious mind!Guess what my son just called from purto rico he is on the crown,he said and I quote very large ship,food is good not great not bad,entertaiment is good,his group has 4 children with them plenty of thing for the kids to do,My daughter in law was at the spa getting relaxed!! I was so surprised to hear from him put he said from purto rico his cell phone worked fine.Does anyone know about the parking in B'klyn like how much? We have not decided yet what to do,We have a daughter that lives in B'klyn so we might take a cab from her house and leave our car there.Does anyone know the exact address for the port I believe its the B'klyn N avy yard and is downtown B'klyn but I'm not sure? TALK TO ALL SOON,not to well informed Vita

Hi Vita,
Hope you have a wonderful cruise, the Crown looks absolutely gorgeous. For the casino, you will need cash in hand. You can charge up to $500/per day on your room, if you have a credit card to cover your sign and sail. I believe they charge a 15% fee for this. Can't help you on the port in Brooklyn, we've never sailed out of there. I believe the massages ran from $60-$185, if memory serves me. I haven't had one because I prefer to spend my money on other things and the hot tubs do the trick for me. They do offer specials on board, check the Princess Patter as well as the announcement cards they distribute to your room. If your husband is worried about sea-sickness, he can visit a doctor and get the patches. Another remedy is ginger, you can buy the tablets at any health food store. If he gets motion sickness on rides or in a car, he might have a few problems. However, the normal ship movement is minimal. Can't wait to hear more from your son on his cruise. Best Wishes!

Vita, I think if you can leave your car at your daughter's and take a cab, that will be by far your best option! Go for it!

HI Vita,

Thanks so much for your vote - BUT, we have this AWESOME site here to utilize.
I am in no means an expert. But, do love to cruise & have experience to share.
Please do not think of yourself as a pest. This is why we are all here to get & share knowledge. ASK AWAY

Looks like Karen & Penny answered your questions.
Tipping could not be easier now. Taking it out automatically for me is so easy.
I was one who would figure out the basic tipping(recommended amounts) for the crew, add some extra cash for excellent service & put it aside in an envelope pre-cruise. This way I had it ready to divide up & put in envelopes for the last night.
I will again stress that tips are how you can thank your crew for a job well done.
With the auto-tipping you are able to adjust amounts if needed.

I am not a casino person myself.
Massages are nice, but, can be pricey. I can tell you I may want to try one in Sanctuary however. Just seems as if it would be awesome up there.

What a lovely surprise hearing from your son. GLad they are all enjoying their cruise.

As far as Red Hook - parking was $19 for the day plus tax. As far as NY prices go a good price. But, if you have the ability to leave your car at your daughter's it may be better for you.
In searing for an exact addresss for the pier I came up with: 70 Imlay Street
Brooklyn 11231
There is a nice website you can go to for info:
http://www.brooklyncruiseguide.com/cruise-terminal.html

I'll keep you posted on my Crown Cruise plans.
Right now I am focused on preparations for my Greek Isles cruise - leaving Sunday for Venice.

Off to get dinner on the table now.

Cathy

HI Vita,

Glad the site helped out.
See, all you gotta do is ask!

I am really getting excited. Only 2 more work days. Been working like mad to get things set to be away for 2 weeks.

I'll be sure to check in when I'm back.
Thanks!

Cathy
