NCL out of Boston is old orient line ship the Spirit and it's doing bahamas, Princess is only doing canada cruises, and I didn't see anything on RCL. NCL out of New York is newer ship, the Gem, but doing Florida and the Bahamas.

Are the cruise lines ticked off at the Caribbean?

I, for one, want to cruise to a WARMER climate like the Caribbean, not Canada (in September anyway).
To get to the Caribbean from anywhere north of Port Canaveral, it wouyld take too long to get there....

Even when they add Charleston in May, it will still only reach Grand Turk at it's furthest.

Needless to say, to reach the Caribbean from Baltimore or NYC, it would have to be a 2 week long cruise and that ain't gonna happen on Carnival.
