Are you ready to leave the snow, ice and cold behind? Do you prefer a hot and sandy beach over a white winter wonderland? Well now is the time to book your winter cruise and fight those winter blues. There are many great cruise deals available and now is the time to book if you want to save money.
When you book your cruise, there are two important things that you have to decide on fairly quickly, where you are going and how much you can afford. Then you can choose the extent of your cruise and any other details that you want to plan.
One of the top destinations for winter cruises is the Caribbean. You can book a 5-night cruise for as little as $398 a person. Cold weather will be the last thing on your mind when you are aboard the Celebrity Constellation that departs from Fort Lauderdale, FL, on December 9. Enjoy stops throughout Cozumel, Mexico, and Key West, FL.
Ever thought about traveling to Dubai? Right now, you can get a 7-night Costa Cruises Dubai cruise for 2 for as low as $568. You will be on-board the luxurious Costa neoRiviera which departs from Dubai and stops in Muscat, Oman, and Abu Dhabi, UAE. The cruise leaves on December 15.
If you aren’t on a budget and want a real cruise adventure, consider an 8-night vacation to Greece. Dunhill Travel is offering a cruise and flight package that includes three nights in Santorini, three nights in Mykonos, and two nights in Athens. Be prepared to shell out at least $3,358 for this cruise deal, but you are still saving a significant amount compared to the regular price.
When you book your winter cruise and take advantage of one of these or any other cruise deal available right now, make sure you consider the port fees, taxes and other expenses that are not always included in the price you pay at booking. Keep these costs in mind if you are gifting a cruise this holiday season as well.
