The popularity of cruising from New York continues to grow each year, but what may come as a shock to people is that some of the best cruise deals are coming out of Brooklyn. Plus, before or after their voyage, cruisers have the opportunity to check out that other borough that many have been proclaiming is the new Manhattan. Sailing from Brooklyn offers a variety of options, from New England fall foliage to luxury transatlantic sailings. Our editors like this 9-night cruise to the Caribbean and back starting from $999. Thats 47% off rack rates!
The Caribbean Princess sets sail August 13, and will spend a day at sea before reaching its first stop on the pink-sand beaches of Bermuda. From there, the ship visits San Juan, a duty-free port that is ideal for shopping as well as exploring numerous historical sites. After that, it sails to the turquoise waters of St. Thomas, in the Virgin Islands, followed by Turks and Caicos. Although many cruise ports are teeming with watersports, shore excursions, and shopping, Turks and Caicos remains the perfect place for rest and relaxation before returning to the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn. Interior cabins are priced from $999, but surprisingly, balcony staterooms are available for the same cost as an oceanview cabin, starting from $1,399.
