One N.Y. cruise option which is extremely popular but rarely mentioned is the four or five-day getaway cruise from New York City to New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. These destination ports are charming college towns with thriving street scenes amidst dramatic rocky coastlines. But the ports are not the reason for taking these cruises. You take these cruises for the ships, which offer fun, great food, and fantastic value, starting at just $329 pp!
And there are several more cruises sailing out of New York this summer, the city is once again the ship passenger hub it was back in the heyday of Ocean Liners. Besides Manhattan, you can now leave from Bayonne New Jersey or Red Hook, Brooklyn. Here is a listing of other NY City cruise options:
Don't miss out, New Yorkers, these ships are offering you tremendously easy and cost-effective summer vacations. All you need is a suitcase and one finger to hail a taxi to the pier. Go to places the trains don't reach, see the world, see the sea. It's a sight for sore eyes.
