Passengers pleaded for years to have ''NewYork'' to wherever cruises during the fall/winter season, because they were tired of having to fly south before embarking on a Carribean Cruise.
Now , cruise lines have listened and passengers can now depart form ''NewYork''....
There is an obvious compromise here which everybody has to play ball with: the first 2 days before you emerge into typical seasonnal warmer weather zones will NOT be Caribean-esque weather, nor will the last 2 on the way back.....Unavoidable.
Only option is back to the old routine; fly south 3 hours, get 100% Caribean-type weather during entire cruise, fly north 3 hours...Which is precisely what a lot of potential guests have lobbied to correct....
Think of it that way: your cruise from NewYork is longer, affording more of the fantastic cruise experience we all learned to love, and the majority of the days are also warmer than back home.
Everybody can turn that into a fantastic vacation.
