Although temperatures in Boston have been relatively mild, winter is definitely here. If you, like me, are already dreaming of summer vacation, you may want to start researching your family vacation plans now. Last year, we took a Carnival cruise out of the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal in Boston, and really enjoyed how convenient it was. Instead of having to fly to our cruise terminal first, we just had to drive down the Mass Pike and started enjoying our vacation immediately. If you are thinking of booking a cruise out of New England, here are a few of the cruises you can enjoy from Boston this summer.
The Carnival Glory, now a Fun Ship 2.0, will be returning to Boston in June and July for 4- and 5- day trips to Canada. The 4-day cruises go Saint John, New Brunswick while the 5-day cruises go to both Saint John, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Rates start at $299 per person, but I recommend that you upgrade to a verandah room so you’ll have a view of the ocean.
