Some ambitious person posted this picture on Facebook of the Escape arriving in the early hours this morning.
After leisurely packing, we met our son and wife for breakfast at Blue Bottle Coffee, then off to do a bit of shopping for things folks forgot to pack. To Michael’s to retrieve my iPad that I left there yesterday, then back to the Courtyard by Marriott New York Downtown Manhattan/World Trade Center Area to finish packing.
We Ubered over to Pier 88. Pier 90 is still not fixed from when a Carnival Cruise hit it a few weeks ago.
Checking in was quite painless, but waiting for the elevators to get to the Garden Cafe is always a PITA. Everyone wants to eat and there’s not really anything else to do yet.
As soon as they called the cabins open, the Cafe cleared out.
Our luggage arrived almost as soon as we did. I checked out the balcony, of course, and it’s hot out there.
Not much exciting. We read for a while on the balcony, had dinner, checked out the other decks to see what’s here, walked around the decks and an early bed.
Preview of our next cruise.
We were scheduled for a WORKING WATERFRONT & LOBSTER PULL but it was canceled due to “operational needs”. They canceled this on September 6. Seems like the needs could have been fixed by September 18 but who knows.
We are now scheduled on a Windjammer Sail instead.
And we’ll be back home before we started! Stay tuned for more detail 🙂
