I'm dreaming of booking our next cruise. Here's my idea: I want to take our kids this time. (Adults actually). They are my daughter, 26 and my son 23, and his wife, 22.
Here are my thoughts so far:
Departure Port: I won't fly (don't ask)...so the port has to be within driving distance of Ontario, Canada. Our first cruise we drove to Baltimore, but a better option would be New York/NewJersey.
Cruise Lines: We loved RCI and the Voyager sails out of N.J. but only April-Oct.
NCL cruises out of NY year round, anyone ever sailed from NY in Feb. or March? Any thoughts?
Dates: I'd really love to try the Voyager, but on the other hand I've always wanted to go somewhere hot in the middle of our Canadian winter, so doing NCL out of NY in Feb. is very appealing.
Itinerary: We really don't care, but would prefer not to go to just Bermuda...we were there the first time and would like to see something different.
Cabins: We would probably have to get two with our daughter staying with us in one cabin & my son & his wife in another. But I'm wondering about anything that would accomodate all 5 of us. But if you pay per person that's going to really add up...Eg: a suite is 2400. PP so do you pay that for all 5? Or do you pay for 2 and then a lesser fare for 3, 4, 5 etc.??? Anyone ever done this??? So would it be cheaper to book 2 inside cabins at 1200. PP and just pay for a 3rd for our daughter in our cabin??
I'd appreciate any help, suggestions, or advice.
