My Husband and I will be traveling with another couple and have been looking at single staterooms for each couple as well as 2-BR suites that we both can share.

What would the difference in prices be, I've been searching cruise line websites but can't get prices for the 2-BR suites in order to compare. We have both shared a 2-BR villa before with no problems so we thought maybe if the price is good doing a 2-BR suite on our upcoming cruise. Can anyone help with giving me an idea what a 2-BR suite would cost?

Thanks,
Jean

Jean, in general, the cost of a 2 BR suite is considerably higher than the cost of two staterooms, even balcony staterooms.

One thing we often like to do with friends is get connecting cabins in whatever category on which we all agree. Then we can open the internal door if we're sharing drinks or snacks. When one couple is ready to go to dinner, they open their internal door, and when the other couple is ready, they open theirs. It's a cute way to travel.

Sandy, thanks for the suggestion about connecting staterooms, didn't think about that. I'm having our TA price out single staterooms as well as a 2-BR suite. I'm still comparing prices.

We did narrow it down to 2 different cruises, so now we have to pick which one to go on. I notice you are from Md as well, have you ever taken the RC Explorer of the Seas, 9 night cruise out of New Jersey? If you have how was this cruise compared to the Fl cruises? Thanks.

If you like days at sea and want to drive instead of fly to the embarkation port, the New Jersey departures are great. The first two and last two days of the cruise are at-sea days, with all the port stops together in the middle of the cruise.

If you don't mind flying (both the expense and the experience) and want a shorter cruise, the Florida ships are varied, with many that are bigger or smaller, and newer than Explorer of the Seas. Depending on the itinerary, you'll still have days at sea and port days. There are just a lot more ships from which to choose if you leave from Florida. Your travel agent should be well equipped to help you with your decision, depending on your wish-list for this vacation.

Also, depending on your travel dates, there are ships that leave right from Baltimore on both Royal Caribbean and Celebrity (among others). Those itineraries include Bermuda cruises, New England/Canada cruises, and 9-11 day Caribbean cruises, again, depending on time of year. It's a great option for folks within driving distance.
