If this is the repositioning cruise in the fall, we took the spring one going the opposite direction and loved it!

Henry, this sounds like a great cruise for you....flying only one way,with nice ports. I would love to have Bermuda for one day, not a prolonged visit. I would bet you would love Princess.

Henry, we haven't sailed from NY, but we love the Caribbean Princess (and Princess in general ). If you haven't been to St. Thomas before, be sure to visit the synagogue: St. Thomas Synagogue .

Sounds like a wonderful cruise!

Better hurry Henry it appears that there will be no sailings out of NYC next summer as Princess is moving the CB to Europe, the Crown is going to sail out of Texas and they are adding a ship to Alaska.

Like Donna, we've done the Caribbean Princess a bunch of times, and LOVE that ship. I'd bet that you and yours will have a GREAT time on that cruise. BOOK IT DANNO!

We love sailing out of NY, just for the thrill of sailing past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Very moving. Literally.

Did that on the Staten Island Ferry for free

Seriously it was quite an experience on the CB until we crashed into the dock.

My preference is to sail out of Manhattan .Brooklyn and NJ are fine too.

We did a wonderful Cunard cruise from Manhattan when we lived in NYC .

Hi,
We did this cruise twice and loved it! In May, we are going on the Caribbean Princess, the Canada - New England cruise. Even tho we live in CT. we thought this would be different. Have a great cruise. For us, not having to fly is a huge plus.
Marguerite
