I would like to know if in NYC if the porters take your luggage on the ship like they do in Miami or do we take care of this ourselves? I ask this question because before 9/11 my fiance took Celebrity Cruises to Bermuda from NYC and was able to carry her own bags on board. Please let me know.
Yes there are porters in NY and they are very aggresive about "taking" your luggage. This is NY after all. As far as I know there is nothing to actually stop you from carrying on your luggage if you choose to do so.
