Has anyone ever sailed on the cruise to nowhere out of New York /NJ on Carnival? It sails in October and I 'm just wondering what there is to do during the day if the pools are closed. They appear to have one covered pool, but wouldn't that be incredibly crowded ? Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
I have sailed on several cruises-to-nowhere. It is just like any day at sea. There will be alot of activities planned throughout the ship. Usually there are alot of first timers trying out a cruise, and the cruise line whats to impress the first timers, so they will have even more events than normal.
You are right, cruises-to-nowhere are very short. But just being on ship makes me happy. Really though, they are a great introduction for a first time cruiser, or as you say; to find out about a different cruise line, or the opportunity to see a new ship. I will be going on a 2nt cruise-to-nowhere on the new Freedom of The Seas out of Boston. They work out best if you don't have to spend alot of money in transportation to get to them, or as I did in January with the Norwegian Sun 1nt cruise, I added three days in Miami for a mini getaway when it was cold here in Michigan.
Hello all, I can't help but comment on the cruise to nowhere. I think that a cruise to nowhere in the month of October out of NY/NJ is for experienced cruisers. Due to the fact that you'll lose a lot of outdoor activities due to the weather and an experienced cruiser know what they will be losing during the Oct. cruise. A newbie will feel that theres nothing to do on a cruise other than inside activities. Cruises to nowhere are good for newbies during the hot weather seasons, or if they are leaving from a warm climate. That way they great to experience what a cruise is really like.
we did the ny/nj cruise to nowhere on the legend, you have to carry all luggage on board there is no checking it,the one pool is covered with a retractable top so you can swim and the hot tubs are avaiable,, I am a gabler so I spent lots of time in casino the ctnw trips are PARTY cruises, lots of drinking and no kids hardly on board they have activties like the regular cruises, its just its a shorter amount of time they just circle out in the Atlantic or circle a 8 figure I should say. I gave my family the trip for Christmas one year we were 6 adults and 3 were newbies and they enjoyed them selves we got a 2 side by side balcony rooms was really a waste of money as the weather was petty crappy and cold only time the balcony was used was for the ones who smoked, ever do again will get a inside or ocean view, waters were a little rough, so there was a little sea sickness going around, but we popped the dramamines and we were fine!!
