Default Cost high Canada/New England?

Anybody know why the cost is so high on a cruise to Canada/New England from the NE ports? A 5 night would cost me more than a 7 night elsewhere.

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.

It is because of the high season for those places but really worth it. Have a nice cruise

I did'nt compare prices because the cruise we had was 10 nights. It is our favorite cruise so far. We did it twice because we enjoyed it so much. mateli wrote:

Hi Phillygirl,

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.
