Summer has come and gone and children are back to school. We are waking up to nippy mornings, shorter days and are beginning to think about the crazy holiday season that lies ahead. What few people realize, (and the one’s that do haven’t wanted to share the secret), is that the fall is an absolutely fabulous time to cruise!
Have you checked out the price of a seven night Caribbean cruise during the time between Labor Day and Christmas? Maybe you should because the prices are too good to be true! With children back at school and young adults heading off to college campuses, many families have temporarily ceased traveling, leaving more berths for the cruise lines to fill. Not only does that reflect in the price of a cruise, but also in the cost of a flight down to Florida, opening up an immense array of options! It may also provide a wonderful opportunity to upgrade to a cabin or suite you may not be able to afford during the “high” season. The onboard experience has a different feel to it, too. Loungers by the pool are abundant, there is never a line at the breakfast buffet, and there is no dreaded search for an empty table with a plate in hand. As fewer tourists descend on a particular port of call, strolling through the towns is more conducive to chatting with the locals and soaking in the laid back Caribbean vibe. Shopping on the islands offers the wonderful prospect of being able hunt for unique gifts for family and friends and get some serious holiday shopping done.
Celebrity Cruise Line and Direct Line Cruises have put together a promotion that will make fall cruising even more enticing! Book a Celebrity Caribbean cruise sailing between October 1st and December 31st and receive a free onboard credit up to $100 per cabin! That is in addition to the free travel insurance Direct Line Cruises offers on all cruises 5 nights or longer. All that left for you to do is pack a bag!"
