What makes it a great trip and worth the price? I live in the NE so New England does not thrill me much, cruising in cooler weather does not thrill me, but Nova Scotia looks like a great place to see. I am not trying to be difficult, but its such a short cruise and am trying to justify the prices I am finding.

Hello phillygirl I will say that from what i read that the port taxes are more money out of those ports and coming into those ports. I know they are nice cruise I have done one. I was also wondering who you are going on the Nj to Aruba trip with via Miami. i am guess that is the November 18 sailing on NCL. please tell me more JD in NJ
I live in NewEngland ( Rhode Island). Things here are more expensive than most places I vist around the country. But, no matter what time you come here the scenery is great.
Feel free to emial me if you have an yquestions.
I was told that the dates booked very early since rcc is new to philly and the renovated ship drew a lot of people in. I am pysched to drive only 20min and be on vacation, no airport. I went out of baltimore to the bahamas last summer and the prices were cheaper. I am paying 400 per person this year for a lesser room but have never been to new england so what the hell.
The port charges are sometimes more than let's say the Caribbean. Also it's a matter of the time of year you cruise.
The New England cruises are limited on weeks and they fill up, so it's a matter of supply and demand and usually means they charge more.
I did a 13-night Canada/New England last October on Celebrity and it was the best cruise I had been on. I am considering doing it again in 2006. Only if Celebrity had Martha's Vineyard and Maine on it's itinerary.
I try to book m cruises while onboard to get my shipboard credit, that saves me a little money.
Try booking your cruise as early as possible for the best price.
