Default Cruising from Boston

Good news for northeast/Canadian cruisers..In the paper today....Massport is in talks with several major cruise, lines for round trip Caribbean cruises from Boston. Something to look forward to..It will make the news around here big time, so I will keep my eyes and ears posted

That would be great news for us here in the Northeast. Cruising from Boston would allow us to re-visit our son's college town - plus meet up with old friends who live there.

Any word on which lines may sail?

Sure wish that happened sooner. When I lived in NH there was not a lot of choice from Boston. The Celebrity Meridian used to go to Bermuda from there. There was NCL to Bermuda after that. Not sure if anything was sailing from there year round. Great news for those from the New England area.
