Hi

I am attempting to surprise hubby with a cruyise for our 10th anniversary. due to availability of babysitters, we can go in September for 3 or 4 nights, preferably over a weekend. We live in the province of Quebec, so would like to be able to go from a port that won't cost a limb or two to fly to!! Cape Canaveral has been suggested by a friend.

If we chose Cape Canaveral, there are two cruises that could be suitable. One on Carnivals Sensation and another on Royal Carribbeans Sovereign of the Seas.

Any suggestions???

Hum,,, well, personally for such a short cruise, I would let the itinerary be my first priority, then cost. A 3-4 night cruise will already be cheaper, so I would be most interested in itinerary. This is weird, cause just a little while ago, I was looking at a 4 night bahamas cruise to surprise my husband in dec for his birthday. I had no idea where Port Canaveral Port was, so I went to their website. It seems to me the biggest airport closest to them is Orlando, a 45 minute drive. I immediately thought about shuttle/taxi fees. I would compare airfare between miami also, to cruise out of. I would definately check with a travel agent, to see what they have to say. Well, good luck, Hopefully, other people will have suggestions. I just thought I would give my ideas. Lil' Lori

Air Canada has two flights a day into Melbourne Airport which is real close to Cape Canaveral.

Becky. When I was on the PortCanaveral.org website,I read about the Melbourne airport, click on "cruise", then click on the "directions" / "how to get here" tab. Melbourne is listed as a close airport. Hope this helps. Lil' Lori

Airport code for Melbourne, FL is MLB. Flights usually are limited into there. A three night cruise will only go to Nassau, Bahamas. A 4nt cruise will go to Nassau, & Freeport, Or to Key West, & Cozumel, Mexico (Depending what port you sail out of) Carnival's Celebration is a smaller, older ship sailing out of Jacksonville, Fl. That might be another option for you.

Don't forget Galveston, Texas. Carnival has a four night to Cozumel, Mexico, and there is a one-day sale today 4-19-06 only. $100 shipboard credit per room! Rooms starting around $329 pp. plus air cost. Remember though, flying into Houston is another 1 hr to Galveston, so you might need to go a day early. Desisions, decisions Good luck.

There have been some problems with Sensation lately; you may want to stick with RCCL. Other good suggestions here too.

As always, I suggest you talk with a cruise-oriented travel agent in your area; they may have some other good ideas and access to information which will help you narrow down your choices.

Royal Caribbean is the best. You can't go wrong with them. They are a world class operation and treat all of their guests like royalty.
