I'd thought I'd start a pre-roll call for the 2010 Princess cruise during 4th of July week from NYC.

So glad to see more cruises from NYC being offered here and during the prime vacation weeks. CC really needs to get their act together - they're catering to the cranky few who don't like to sail with kids and almost everything is on Carnival anymore.

Anyhow, getting back on topic - which ship are you hoping for the summer season of 2010? I'm kind of hoping one of the new ships like Ruby Princess!

So count me and count me for the pre-cruise stay in New York City! I think it's a fabulous idea! Personally, I voted for two nights!

Bookmarking this one to keep in mind for 2010 but, it should work, I normally take 4th of July week off.

As far as ship, yes, would love to see one of the new ships like Ruby come up to the Big Apple but, I certainly won't be disappointed if they bring Crown or Caribbean Princess back up either.

I just hope they keep the same basic itinerary, I love the mix of Bermuda plus the Caribbean.

Tommy,

Thanks for posting the picture of the Caribbean Princess. She is a beautiful ship. For those that have not sailed on her yet, you will love her!

Robyn, thanks for smiles!!!!

I would love everyone to start emailing me at jeanie@becktours.com if you are definately planning on cruising on July 4, 2010 with the group! I am planning on a large group! Very Happy
Thanks to everyone that has started offering suggestions for our pre-cruise stay in NYC.
I know it's 2 years away, but I'm just as excited as if it were tomorrow!!!!

Ok I kind of "borrowed" this from someone who posted about a pre-cruise stay in NYC for EOS in 2010 for Christmas. The site is called New York City Vacation Packages, here's the website: http://www.nycvp.com

Here's a rough estimate of what to expect pricewise...

For a family of 4, based on arriving July 1, 2008 for 2 nights it prices out at $2244

- 2 Nights at Sheraton New York Hotel (1 Room)
- 4 Tickets to a play (I selected Momma Mia for pricing purposes)
- 4 Tickets for Gray Line Sightseeing Bus (all loops)
- Dinner for 4 at Planet Holiday (Premium Menu Selected)
- Dinner for 4 at Tavern on the Green
- Insurance for the land package

For 2 people for the same package, based on July 1, 2008 for 2 nights it prices out at $1419
- 2 Nights at Sheraton New York Hotel (1 Room)
- 2 Tickets to a play (I selected Momma Mia for pricing purposes)
- 2 Tickets for Gray Line Sightseeing Bus (all loops)
- Dinner for 2 at Planet Holiday (Premium Menu Selected)
- Dinner for 2 at Tavern on the Green
- Insurance for the land package

This should help a bit trying to help folks decide if they want the pre-cruise package. Naturally, our TA Jeanie can adjust things as we would like them, this is just a way to show you the approximate cost of what we're planning.

Robyn,

Great post!! That can give everyone an idea of the expenses of the pre-cruise portion. I spoke with NYCVP today and it's too early to get quotes for 2010, but we can at least have some sort of idea of package prices. We can customize our package to our needs! It's nice that we have some time to plan everything together!

Hey that's great information! Now would we be required to make a deposit for both the cruise and the land package. I'm assuming the answer is yes, but, I'm just curious what the land package deposit would be - any idea?

Good Morning Everyone,

I wanted to let you know that regarding the Pre-Cruise portion of our trip, we can put down a deposit. Deposit amount depends on how elaborate a package we set up. But I would say the deposit would run between $300-$500 per person. Final payment on the land package would be due 45 days prior to arrival!

Jeanie, would that be refundable in case anyone needed to cancel and, another question is how will insurance be handled for both the land and cruise packages?

Great question Dave.

First, let me correct myself. Final payment for Groups is 60 days prior to arrive.
$150 of the entire group bill is non-refundable. Once show tickets are ordered, that portion is also non-refunable. Show tickets are ordered when a deposit is made.
Once we get a group contract, it will state all of the non-refunable items and cancellation dates.

As far as insurance, I use a third party, such as AIG Travel Guard or iTravel Insured. Both companies are great to work with and I can make sure everyone is getting the best rate.

Here's an interesting question, what if we have friends or family, obliviously who live in the area, who might want to enjoy the pre-cruise activities but not necessarily need or want the hotel or the cruise portion. Think that can be arranged as well?

Robyn,

If family or friends want to join us.. that would be great. I would just need to know how many people would be joining us and we can get vouchers for them for most things minus the hotel and transfers to the port.
