Well said.

I still contend that forcing people to go to a cold place (and dress accordingly) to depart on a warm Caribbean cruise is one of the lamest business decisions ever made.

While the NE folks are understandably happy to just hop over to Bayonne out of convenience to them...the rest of the world sees this as what it is...a competitive money-maker for the time being. once the novelty wears off...we'll see how it lasts.

As for the extra time at sea - having to pay for and go on an 11-day cruise to the same destinations when you can enjoy the same thing for much less cost on an 7-day cruise out of Florida is clearly a ripoff.
