Opinions needed
I am trying to decide on a cruise :

1)Celebrity Summit from NJ to New England and Canada leaving Oct.5,2013

2)Norwegian Dawn from Boston ,MA to New England/Canada leaving Sept.27,2013.
Questions :
a)Weather in Boston the end of Sept and mid Oct.
b) The better of the 2 ships
c) Has anyone been on either ship and if so:pros and cons

I have sailed on the Summit twice and loved both cruises. The weather in New England can be quite nice in the Fall, but it differs a lot from year to year.

Been on both ships, but quite a while ago. They are both about 10 years old.

Boston will definetly be light jacket weather for both dates. One week apart will not be any different.

With all your requirements equal, there is no contest, Celebrity has it all over NCL.

I agree with OFC. :cool:

Pros: NJ is a one hour drive but 5 ports and 2 tenders

Boston is 4 hours but the NCL cruise has a better itinerary-10 ports

My TA says that if you love Celebrity, you might not care for NCL.

Keep in in mind that 10 ports could be a bit overwhelming.

Manuel April 12th, 2012 02:24 PM
