Default Crown Princess - New England/Canada

I am going on the Crown Princess to New England/Halifax/Canada on October 9th. Any ideas what the weather will be like during this time of the year. How is the foilage color?

Hi, I did this cruise in 1998 on Royal Princess and loved it. My trip was a little later in October and we almost missed the colors, so yours should be great. Loved the ports, Halifax and Quebec City were great, also liked the others (Boston, Newport, St. John, Montreal, I think I forgot!). have a great time!

Doing the Royal Princess New England cruise in September so I'll let you know how it is and how far along the colors are! I haven't done this cruise yet so I am really looking forward to it! Should be really great, I think! Enjoy! Sue

We did this cruise last year from Sept 7 to 17. The guides said we were about three weeks too early for the colors. The weather was very cool north and warmer as we came south. We sailed from Montreal to New York. I don't think you will need many shorts.

Expect the weather to be in th 60's during the day and a bit cooler at night. This is a wonderful cruise, and the foliage should be great this year!

We did this cruise 11 years ago and loved it, that is why we are doing it again, only this time on Princess. I understand RCL and Princess both are almost sold out for this date, but Sept. 29 still has cabins left so I am hoping we are sailing at the right time. Each year can be different, but I think Oct. 9th. should be just about right. Maybe we will see you on the Crown.

Here in the Northeast, weather conditions can be highly variable. "Normal" temperatures for southern New England in the middle of October would have highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's -- but highs in the 80's or the 40's and lows in the 60's or the 20's would be within the normal range of variation. Expect that tempeartures will be 10-20 degrees cooler up north (for example, around the St. Lawrence River and Saguenay Fjord).

I highly recommend bringing a winter jacket and some sweatshirts or sweaters for cooler weather, and also a couple pairs of shorts in case you encounter weather that's on the warm side.

At the time of your trip, you probably will find peak foliage around Boston and Portland, Maine. The foliage up north probably will be a bit past its peak, while you probably will be a bit early for the peak foliage along the southern coast of New England and on Cape Cod. Nonetheless, these areas still should be fairly colorful.

Have a great cruise!

We were on a Princess cruise to Canada in late October a few years ago and it was cold and rainy. The later in October you go, the more risk you take with the weather. We are on the September 15 Crown to NE/Canada this year for obvious reasons. It is the first of the season.
