Today’s Cruises – September 29, 2013

The world of cruises is truly worldwide today, with 29 different cruise ships setting sail on lots of 7-day voyages and other interesting cruises, including…

  • Carnival Magic making its weekly 7-night trip from Galveston.  This week it’s a tour of the western Caribbean, sometimes it’s to the Bahamas;
  • Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas is departing from Cape Liberty (located within sight of the Statue of Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey) for a 7-night cruise to Bermuda.  Explorer of the Seas is scheduled to remain in New Jersey until next November, also making 5-night trips to Bermuda and 9-night cruises to the eastern Caribbean;
  • ms Statendam leaves Vancouver today on a 5-day cruise to San Diego.  And a 35-day cruise to San Diego.  And a 66-day cruise to San Diego.  Option #1 is a straight trip down the Pacific coast.  Option #2 adds on a month visiting all the interesting islands of the Pacific (really, all of them).  Option #3 adds another month touring Mexico and Central America.  Just depends on how many times you want to visit San Diego.  And how much cash and time you have to spare.
