Sunshine, On A Cloudy Day

Last Fall we took our first and hopefully not last cruise from New York. For September in “The Big Apple” it was an usually cloudy, windy and cold afternoon as we boarded the Carnival Sunshine.

“Adios New York” is just not the same as “Adios Miami”. However, saying good-bye to the New York City Skyline and then later sailing under “The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge” was a delightful thrill.

Although we only had one port of call, a half day or so exploring New Brunswick, Canada by car turned out to be a scenic wonderland and lots of fun. We drove towards Fundy National Park but not before making a few detours and a stop to climb the St Martin's Lighthouse during high tide.

A few hours driving and hiking in Fundy National Park and by the time we past back through St Martin's it's low tide. The world's highest tides occurs here and on this particular afternoon our timing was just right to experience it.

A nice lobster roll for lunch and soon we headed back for some more “Fall FUN” on The Sunshine.

We did NE/Canada too out of NYC on the Triumph but of course before its infamous power outage.

We were on the Sunshine when it was the Destiny in 2003. Liked it then, probably would like it more now.

We saw the reversing waters of the Bay of Fundy too. Nice but liked the other ports of Boston, Portland ME. and Nova Scotia much more

What sort of cruise was this with one port?

Our ship was docked close to the Intrepid. That was cool!
