I TOO hope you plan a cruise from th NY area someday. We are from Maine and usually cruise out of NY city at least once a year. Would love to book onto a cruisemates cruise if there is one available from there. They sound like fun and I love meeting up with old friends each time. Will be checking if one becomes available.
At the moment we're not looking at any group cruises from that area. Never know about 2008 though....
Hey, how about one to Bermuda ... from Philly? RCL and NCL both go out of the Port of Philadelphia in the spring, summer and fall. Prices are reasonable on these seven-day itineraries. Might be doable, don't you think?
