Fall Foliage Cruises

Living in New England, it’s easy to take the fall foliage season for granted. We just expect September and October to be absolutely breathtaking months, with cool clear nights, bright sunny days, and gorgeous displays of red, orange and yellow leaves — and we certainly don’t appreciate it enough!

The cruise lines do, though.  They take full advantage of the brief “fall foliage” season to run an assortment of New England/Canada sailings from New York and Boston.  These sailing are very popular with folks from other parts of the country, but I think they are an overlooked gem for those of us on the east coast!

Think about it….  you drive to Boston or New York, park your car for a week or ten days, and sail off to Newport, Portland, Bar Harbor, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and more. All at the very best time of year in the Northeast, when the shore towns are uncrowded but the water is still warm, and the kids have all gone back to school.

Best of all, there are some great deals to be found right now! Royal Caribbean is offering 5-, 7- and 9-night sailings for rates starting at just $569 per person. If you’re interested in a Fall Foliage getaway, give me  a call!

You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
