Exclusive Online Cruise Deals from Cruise Direct
I am one of those who think that cruises are for old people; but many of my friends (about the same age as mine) have been on cruises and totally enjoyed them. If you like cruises or want to experience something new now is your chance. Online Exclusives – Find the Perfect Cruise
If you book now and depart in early December, some cruises are as cheap as $399 (14 nights) and you’ll be visiting both Europe and South America. If this doesn’t convince you, then you should know that you’ll also get up to $125 On Board Credit.
You might even be more adventurous and prefer Africa, Australia or Asia for a romantic vacation . Some of them come with a high price but there are also some good bargains to be found. For example for up to a week in Australia you’ll pay from AUD$325 to 650 per person (includes 10% discount). You do need to find a flight to Australia on your own though.
If, for whatever reason, your ideal cruise doesn’t comprise Europe, or should you prefer to stay closer to home, then there are plenty of Caribbean deals to check out (some starting at $549). December marks the start of the high season in the Caribbean so the prices will be higher compared to Europe (where winter is showing its lovely face).
Or, if you are like me and prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, there are loads of places in the States to head to in December, regardless of what you prefer. Love the sun? Orlando vacation packages sound just about right. Need to do your Christmas shopping? I’m thinking New York vacations !
Regardless of what you choose to do, it’s important to read all the fine print and know what to expect in terms of additional costs. Some cruises and vacations don’t include the flight, while others require you to buy travel insurance as part of the package. Add those costs and plan your budget accordingly.
