Maybe they can or they can't....but they should...or at least South of the Mason-Dixon Line...we did something similar and never looked back. It's great to only watch snow and freezing temps on TV instead of out the window...

We just love cruising...and we don't much care where the ship leaves from....warm, cold....we'll take any of them
From what we've experienced (I also come to Canada 2-3 times/year on business) Canadians have a high tolerance for pain (cold).

Once you get a taste for warmer weather on a daily basis...going back to the cold is pretty tough though...

Circling back to the main topic...

It is understandable why RCI decided to put Quantum in Bayonne for NCL competitive reasons - having a newer ship in the NYC region...but doing so clearly shuts out many cruisers who simply don't want to deal with the cold, higher costs, and other hassles of cruising from that port.

Certainly they are entitled to make those choices - it's their company. But it also doesn't have to be blindly seen as either a smart move or long-term commitment to stay there. We'll see how things go after year 1...
