Default Is there a cruise...

Which departs from New York City or another port in the northeastern United States, stops in the Bahamas or somewhere in the Carribbean, and then goes to Florida without going back to NYC?

I actually spent about 10 or 15 minutes looking up cruises but was unable to find any that did not return to NY...actually I did, but they were really long, expensive cruises (trans-canal cruises that ended in LA and Amazonian cruises that ended in Miami).

There's you answer. I have never heard of one which starts in NY and ends in Florida.

I did a 3 week cruise last October-November.
New York - Ft.Lauderdale - Cartagena (Colombia) - Colon (Panama) - Puerto Limon (Costa Rica) - Cozumel (Mexico) - Miami.
with MSC cruises which was okay but not great, cruises are not for me, i need my time to explore a country/city can't do all of that in 1 day.
Don't book to many excursion most of them are overpriced and will disappoint you!

I think Norwegian may have some reposition cruises that do something like that (I know they have one from NYC to New Orleans), but it'll only be once or twice a year; you won't really have a wide selection of dates.

I'm headed down on them next month from New York City to the Bahamas and back. I guess if you really wanted to you could just not get back on the boat at the last stop in Nassau and purchase your own separate one way cruise from there to Florida, but that sounds like a pretty expensive option as you're still paying for those last two nights of the cruise that you're not even on the boat for, plus the cost of the one way cruise.

edit: On their webpage here they have a link to a "14-Day Circle the Caribbean from New York to Miami" at the bottom under "Repositioning Cruises," but when you click on it goes to a 404 error. I'm headed out now so I can't really investigate it, but give them a call and ask about it.

Best bet my be a repositioning cruise on one of the lines that ports out of NYC in the summer but returns to Florida for the winter. That will lock you into very specific travel dates though. If you're willing to expand your search to Boston and Baltimore, you'd have a few more options.

That's because it is illegal for a foreign-flagged cruiseship to transport passengers from one U.S. city to another unless it stops in a distant foreign port along the way. So for example, you can have a ship go from L.A. to Miami because it goes to South America first, but you can't have a ship go from NYC to Miami.

The original post asked for a cruise that made a stop in the Bahamas or Caribbean on the way. Any Caribbean port would count as a distant foreign port, Bermuda would as well.

No, sorry, you're flat-out wrong. The closest distant foreign ports under the PVSA are the ABC islands off the coast of Venezuela.
