Hello,
We are currently booked on the Jewel out of Boston on October 21st. Several questions for any of you who have done this.

The ports are Portsmouth, Bar Harbor, Halifax, and St Johns. Are any of these tender ports?

I noted today that there is a $150 difference per person for the October 14 cruise versus the Oct 21. Anyone have any idea why this might be?

Thanks,

We did this a few months ago (October) - good cruise! The one tender port is Bar Harbor (stop in at the West End Cafe for lunch & tell Kevin that Mike said hi!).

I think the 10/21 cruise is the last one before the repo. That might account for price differences.

Your cruise is over Columbus Day weekend so that could be why it is more expensive. Bar Harbor is your only tender port. And just an FYI, you are going to Portland, Maine, not Portsmouth, NH.

The prices are always based on supply and demand. The fact RCI has priced the Oct 14 cruise higher reflect the cruise line's belief that there will be greater demand for that cruise. Since Columbus day is Oct 8th this year that doesn't appear to be the reason. Since foliage is a key reason people take this cruise, it may reflect a perception that will be the peak time for leaf peeping.

As other have said, Bar Harbor is the only tender port. We were on this itinerary in Oct 2010 with reallyitsmema and had a great time. We enjoyed all of the ports, but Halifax was probably my favorite. The ship is well maintained and has good facilities. We had some service issues, primarily in the MDR, but crews rotate and that is not typical of our RCI experience so I wouldn't worry about that too much. Boston is also a great city so I would try to spend a day or two there before or after.

Have a great time. Can't resist a picture to whet your appetite:

Here is the lighthouse near Portland:



OK, how about another:. This is Peggy's cove near Halifax:

Amen to that, it was a little chilly the day we were Portland, but just look at the Peggy's Cove picture. We really were lucky -- as you say until that last day. I think that last day was the only time in any cruise I have been on [since the USNS Darby in Dec 1963 at least] that they actually put the bags out. Don't think we had any sea-sickness in our group though. I am not a sand and surf type person, so this was my favorite type of cruise. Still look forward to seeing you guys again some day.

My sister and I did this cruise last year (Oct 2011). It was beautiful. Our other sister lives in Portland, Maine so she met us at the ship and we spent the day together, then she drove to Bar Harbor and met us again the next day. One tip...plan for any kind of weather. Portland and Bar Harbor were lovely....warm and dry. St. Johns and Halifax were rainy and chilly. We had a great time nonetheless. The Jewel is our favorite ship. Our only criticism is the Boston terminal....signage is terrible! We had to ask several people where were supposed to be waiting, people were milling around because they didn't know where to go. Hopefully, they've improved things. Once we got into the proper place, it went smoothly. In fact, we were the first ones on the ship! Have a great cruise!

We were on the same cruise as Susan and it was one of our favorite trips. It "should" have been peak foliage, but it was a bad year for color. It's unpredictable that way. I loved all 4 ports, but Bar Harbor was my favorite.

We haven't scheduled anything yet this year, we might do something last minute, but are planning on something for 2013 for our 25th. Have it narrowed down to Hawaii, Alaska, the Oasis or Allure. We will figured it out eventually. Would be nice to run into you guys too.

The Jewel of the Seas (RCCL) is doing the NE route this fall. If I wass to go on a cruise up the east coast, I would probably pick the 14th --- 21st is rather late in the season.

In Bar Harbor a lot of shops close after the middle of the month (although when a ship is known to come in later they will open for that).

Bar Harbor has a lot of construction going on right now - Across from the tender dock the end building has been torn down and they are rebuilding (I believe hotel or condo's) ... not quite sure which - just hope that its done soon --- I'll be there in mid April and the end of May. Jan

Thanks for the information.

We were origninally booked for September 16th and are traveling with another couple. They found out they were having their first grandchild in September so we already moved to October 21. Do you have a feel for what the temperature is like in Portsmouth and Bar Harbor at that time of the year?

Thanks,

Portland, Maine and Bar Harbor Maine should probably be in the middle 50's (if lucky).

Just remember to dress in layers as it can be unpredictible. Jan

Mom and I did this itinerary in Sept. 2010 and loved it so much we are booked on Jewel to do it again this Sept. In 2010 we were on Explorer of the Seas out of Bayonne. Since Boston is my home port this time traveling to the port will be really easy!

I agree that Halifax was wonderful. Peggy's Cove is a must-see.

Weather-wise we were extremely lucky last time. Hurricane Earl was heading to NJ-NY and up the coast right when we were embarking. Our ship left port in Bayonne 30 minutes early. The captain kept us well-informed of the itinerary plans from the time we left NJ and we had full confidence in him. We made for Portland, ME at top speed to shelter in the harbor while the storm passed us by. Instead of a first day at sea we were in Portland by morning. That gave us 2 days in Portland and the passengers were thrilled. The seas were not bad at all. No bad weather the entire cruise for us (not so for the poor folks on land). The hurricane hit Nova Scotia before we got there. They had already restored the electricity and the downed trees were all removed from the roads before we got there. The people in Nova Scotia are very warm and friendly -- a wonderful first-time visit for us. The folks in Saint Johns were also warm and friendly.

We loved this cruise and you will too, I hope!

So happy to hear all the positive things on this New England cruise ! We are booked for Oct 14 on Jewel of the Seas to celebrate our 10 th wedding anniversary (actually, it's Nov 1 st, but we figured it would be too late in the season to see the fall colors at that time, so we are going a bit early). I am glad there was mention about Peggy's Cove, we were undecided on whether or not to book that as an excursion, but now it looks like a must-do ! 8 more months to go ... it feels like it will take forever to get here !!
