A round trip cruise from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico would take much longer than the eight-night cruise that Carnival is now offering. That’s why the cruise line is now offering a one way cruise from New York to Puerto Rico that will have several stops along the way.
This itinerary on the Carnival Splendor will allow for stops at great ports like St Kitts, St Maarten, St Thomas, and the islands of Antigua. For those that want to cruise back to New York instead of flying they can also book cruises from Puerto Rico to New York and make it a 2 week vacation.
The first New York-to-San Juan cruise will take place on Oct. 24, 2014; and there will be two more on Jan. 12 and Feb. 13, 2015. Three San Juan-to-New York voyages will depart on Nov. 1, 2014; and on Jan. 20 and Feb. 21, 2015.
Currently Carnival’s 7 or 8-night round trip cruises that sail out of New York are only able to go as far south as Florida and the Bahamas because of the distance, so these one-way cruises will give New Yorkers grater variety in exploring the southern Caribbean.
The cruise line also announced that it would offer new 4, 5 and 7-day cruises on the Carnival Splendor to Canada and New England. The dates for these cruises will take place from June to October 2014.
