Does anyone know of a relatively inexpensive car service from Bucks County to cruise terminal in Manhattan. We have 6 people and were quoted about $700 round trip. Does that sound about right or does someone know a reputable firm that would be cheaper? Thanks!

We are going to the cruise terminal on Tuesday and we also have 6 people, but from Huntingdon Valley.

We were quoted $700 round trip from Deluxe, plus tolls and tip. You need to rent the whole van, so it's just your party in there.

We were quoted $600 from Dave's, tolls included, plus tip. It's an 11 person van, so you would sit with others and the times for going/coming back are more stringent.

We went with Dave's because they were cheaper.

What cruise are you going on?

That's funny because I think that the quote is from Dave's. I'm actually asking for my parents because they aren't too Internet-saavy. And I'm pretty sure it was Dave's that she told me their quote was from. I think they used him once before.

We are going to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. My family is driving up from Northern Virginia and parking at the cruise terminal, but my parents and sister's family were going to do the limousine route. I was hoping I could find something under the $600-$700 range but it sounds like that is the going rate. They could each drive a car and park it for $150 each, but my sister isn't comfortable driving there. I was trying to save them a bit of money. I will tell them to just go with what they got. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Is it on Carnival? I did that cruise Labor Day week of 2007 and liked it so much I did it the same week last year.

Yes, it's on Carnival. It's my first time cruising, but my parents go fairly regularly. We're very excited.
