Renee has been checking on a hotel in Newark the night before our cruise. She finds that most hotels are not that willing to work out a special deal since it is only one evening. 

The Crown Plaza in Newark has airport service and is only about 5 miles for the ship. 

They also offer breakfast for an additional fee. If you want breakfast, please ask for them to include it with your reservation.  

 The room rates are:

     *Senior rate – King Room $168 plus tax
       Two queen beds $180 plus tax

The hotel does offer transportation from the airport. 

You will need to make your reservations.

     Crowne Plaza Newark Airport
     901 Spring Street
     Elizabeth, NY 07201
     Phone: 908.527.1600


Below you can see the Costs and Itinery for the trip itself.

If you are interested in attending the 34th USS Stoddard Reunion, please contact either Renee or Sherry and we can run through the details with you. 

The average cost of a Stateroom (For 2 Persons-not per person) is as follows:

     Interior: $1564.48
     Balcony: $2192.48

(As of Oct 31, All of the Group Balcony Staterooms have been claimed. You can still get a Balcony Stateroom but the price will be at the current public selling price. The Public price will continue to rise as we get closer to the Cruise date.)

     Jr. Suite:      $3266.48
     Grand Suite: $5308.48

All blocked cabins are on a first come, first serve basis. There are fewer blocked Balcony Staterooms than Oceanview or Interior Staterooms. 

All Staterooms are based on availability so it would be advisable to reserve your stateroom at your earliest convenience.  

Please send me your intent to attend as soon as possible.

Final payment must be made Not Later Than June 1, 2024.

I have requested the following for the group:
     A gathering room each day.
     An area to hold the Memorial Service.
     A private group tour of the Island (Extra Cost).
     Reserved Area of the Dining room each evening for dinner.

I am currently researching the area to find a hotel for the night prior and a shuttle to transport everyone to the ship. I will put hotel information out as soon as I finalize the plan.

The Meeting Room is scheduled so that we all have a place to gather and just hang out (No Cost).

The Memorial Service is Scheduled for: September 11th, 2:30pm, location to be determined.
