I'm checking Van/Shuttle service from the airport to the hotel. Carmel will take three people with 6 pieces of luggage total for $62, plus toll and tip. Are you interested in sharing a ride to the hotel? I arrive on Sunday at 2:58 pm on Delta flight 985.

If I can get a ticket, I would consider it. I am staying on Fri for NYPhil and MetOpera Sat. afternoon.

Sounds lovely. Wish I could stay longer, but schedule won't allow it.

Gale Pemberton Feb 26, 2014 at 01:07 PM

Will be doing this program in April. We were there last year, and the program was so good that we're doing it again.
Roberta Huebner Feb 26, 2014 at 09:54 PM

It was really great. I am still on a high.
Gale Pemberton Feb 27, 2014 at 08:13 AM

Glad you enjoyed it. We're in Hartwell, GA.
Roberta Huebner Feb 27, 2014 at 06:02 PM

We're practically neighbors! I hope you enjoy your trip. I have also done the Santa Fe Opera Extravaganza trip two years in a row and plan to go back this year. It's superb.

Roberta Huebner Feb 11, 2014 at 02:15 PM

I am signed up for the Feb. 16 - 21 Ultimate Opera Program. Will be coming from Atlanta, Georgia, and would love to meet someone on this discussion board ahead of time. It's my first trip to NY.

Fay Ellis Oct 19, 2013 at 10:41 AM

Hello, I have signed up for the Jan 12-17 Ultimate Opera Program. I will be traveling from Washington, DC, probably by train, but haven't made travel arrangements yet. I would be glad to hear from anyone else on this program. This will be my third program with Road Scholar. Fay
