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).
The distance from NYC to San Juan is 1634 miles. And San Juan is the northern edge of the Caribbean. At 20 mph, the round trip would take 6.8 days. ANY stop along the way for any amount of time over 288 MINUTES, means the trip could NOT be done in 7 days.
