I’m so thrilled that Carnival Cruise Lines is now offering seasonal departures out of the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal in Boston. Instead of having to fly or drive to a departure port, I just have to drive the 15 miles to Boston, park my car, and board the ship.
This month, I’m joining a press trip on the Carnival Glory for a five-day cruise to Saint John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Carnival is offering these five day cruises as well as a four day cruise that stops in New Brunswick through July 26, 2012, and are already scheduled to return for 2013. The prices are great for a summer vacation, and since New Englanders won’t have to fly for the departure, it really can be a fabulous deal.
The 2,974-passenger Carnival Glory offers deluxe amenities you’d expect from a cruise ship, including a 270-square-foot Seaside Theatre poolside LED screen displaying movies, concerts and other programming, a 13,300-square foot spa, four swimming pools, and a full range of dining venues.
I’ll be back with a full review of the ship, as well as the ports of Halifax and St. John.
