New York! The Big Apple!

Good Morning Bloggers!

Another blog from me !

New York City another wow place! I don’t know where to start!

We set sail from Southampton on a very sunny day, the whole crew and passengers so excited for the road trip ( wave trip ) ahead of us. It would take us 6.5 days until we enter into New York Waters! We had some bad weather going across the seas( hurricane Dave) it wasn’t the name of the Hurricane, i really like the name dave, and everyone seemed to go along with it result !! Boom Named a Hurricane.

I remember the day we arrived ( early in fact) I was working at the time, hosting a traditional game of Deck Quoits! When we hear someone say, ‘Statue Of Liberty’. The whole game stopped and everyone briskly walked to the other side of the ship, and the view was spectacular! just sailing past this huge statue, which is something that i had only ever seen in the movies!

We decided to head to the front of the ship to watch us dock, and the skyscrapers…. vast, just everything you would expect.  We went through a lot of immigration bits and bobs but i wont bore you with the details!

ON TO THE TRAVELLING
Just after our trip to New England, me and my friend decided to book another 4 day holiday to New York….. SO ALL THE ADVENTURES ARE INCLUDED!

Lets start with our first Adventure on the New York map!

Top of The Rock, The Rockefeller Centre

view-from-top-of-the-rockThis is something i would definitely recommend doing! The first time i arrived in new York we only had two days, so i had to narrow my choices to what i really wanted to do! I asked a local what was the best view, from the top of the rock? Or the Empire State Building? His Reply,’ Top of The Rock 100%, the reason is because you have an incredible view of the Empire State Building Lit up at night and over central park’. So Boom, we travelled up to the Top of The Rock! It was so worth it was such a beautiful view!

Times Square! 

Walking from the ship into New York, Times Square was the first jewel of this exciting city that i laid my sparkly excited eyes upon! I wasn’t disappointed! shutterstock_136061666.0.jpg

I just started spinning around, my eyes lit up, i couldn’t believe i was actually in Times Square! Then my brain started flicking through movies, Ghostbusters, Spiderman, Big Breakfast at Tiffany’s, endless amount of films set in Times Square! Set in New York. I was in my element. We left times square to explore more of The Big Apple!

I returned to Times Square in the Evening and WOW !

A List Of Places to Visit

Ellen’s Stardust Diner

Ellen’s Stardust Diner is a retro 1950s theme restaurant located on Broadway 51st Street in Theatre District. The Diner is on of the best themed restaurants in New York. Ellen’s Stardust is home to aspiring Broadway singers and performers, who wait on you whilst singing an array of songs, and in my own opinion its incredible! I wish i could sing and have fun the way they do ! There is normally a queue to get in, even at breakfast as it is such a popular place! Rating *8/10*
