Nancy I live in NYC and was born and raised in NJ, so, if you need to know anything about the area, just ask. I'm more than happy to help!

Welcome aboard Nancy! This will be our first time in NYC, so we are staying 3 nights before the cruise (and I still don't think we'll even touch everything we want to see!).

Tina - thanks for the hint on clothing. We've never had to pack both warm weather and cool weather clothing, so its going to be a challenge. Oh well.. I plan on stuffing my suitcase to the gills since I have to pay to check it anyway!!

Thanx on the info on the clothing suggestion. I too was wondering about that. We've only been to the HOT Caribbean and never up north.

Hope santa was good to all.

HAPPY 2009 to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be safe!!!

When it gets closer we will need some info on what you think the weather will be like. My husband is from Maine and he says we'll need some warmer clothing. Carol

We have never done a cruise with "warmer clothing" so this will be a new experience for us. Always only had to pack the shorts, tees, and the like. The plane will be happy though cause might need that "extra luggage". But we are sooooo looking forward to a new kind of cruise and cannot wait.

Kim and Mike

Last year we were in the Med in late October and it was what I would call a "warmer clothing" cruise.. I actually found that I took less clothing! Its easy to wear a cardigan more than once and since I wasn't wearing no-no's during the day (shorts and tees) I didn't have to change for dinner, so no packing two outfits per day! Of course, everyone is different and I'm not one of those kind of girls that has to take shoes to match every outfit Smile

Thanx Jennifer....didn't think about it that way. About the shoes...I probably only own a total of 5 pair so when packing them my choices are easy Very Happy

Has anyone been to Saint John before? Looking for ideas on things to do there, something kind of low-key since this is a port intensive cruise.

Jennifer, I've been there twice so far - the Moosehead beer tour in St John was fun and you do get a sample Drinks . The other time I was in St. John I did a city highlights tour which was ok but, on this sailing, I'm going to try something else to see and do - perhaps something like the Bay of Fundy Lobster Bake.

Having just read this entire thread, I realise I didn't ever pop in here to join the Roll Call. We are Sheila and Bob from Delaware and are good friends with Nancy and Ken. We have never sailed on Princess and we are looking forward to a change. We have however, done this itinerary and enjoyed it a lot.

Is the Lobster Bake through Princess? Have you done other shore excursions with Princess? We've never taken a ship excursion, usually finding it easier or more enjoyable to go out on our own, but it seems like this might be the port to try one!

Jennifer - yes, if you go on the Princess website, you can see a sampling of shore tours. http://www.princess.com/learn/shorex/index.jsp Just select Canada & New England and you can see some examples of what to expect.

Shelia - welcome to Princess, I'm so happy you're taking advantage of this sailing! Looking forward to meeting you in person finally!

Jfultz81 - Jennifer and John (DH) with Ron and Maxine (John's parents)

Well, the drydock is under way! It will be nice to have an updated ship (esp. since we are first timers on Princess!). Wish we had more sea days to really enjoy the ship! Think we can ask them to tack on a few extra days??

Just checking in, we are Nancy the poster and DH Ken, friends of Sheila and Bob. This will be our second cruise on this ship, the last was in the Caribbean. This will be our 5th cruise on Princess so will move up a level after this trip, which will mean more internet minutes.

This is lovely ship and looking forward to meeting all of you and chatting over the next months.

I will go look at that later when I get a chance. We are on our way to North Carolina to visit one of our sons and then South Carolina to visit another son who is a Commander at the Nuke School there. He lives in Goose Creek.

Hi Nancy, welcome aboard!

Yes, they are supposed to be adding a Sanctuary, International Cafe, Vines, Crown Grill, and 7 new OV suites. They are relocating the casino, sports court, wedding chapel, and internet cafe. Its a big drydock!

Popping back in..just reread some of the posts. Looking forward to the upgrades made during the drydock. We have sailed her twice (2006 and 2007)...yes we loved her so much the first time we went on her again.

Would love to have some group activities Smile would be awesome
