Caribbean Cruise Deals

A Caribbean cruise is the perfect way for you and your family to get some sunshine and unwind, but how should you plan your vacation so you get the most out of it?

Choose the Most Affordable Time to Go

The most popular times of the year for Caribbean cruises are when children are out of school, including summer vacation, the winter holidays, and spring break. If you have kids, this is a great time to go, because many cruise lines have special children's programs when they're expecting to have a lot of young people on board.

To save money, book your cruise from late April through May or sometime between September and early January (but not during school vacations). These are the best times to get last-minute deals; you could end up saving hundreds of dollars per person. Keep in mind, though, that if you go during hurricane season, your cruise may end up taking a different route from the one originally planned.

The Best Caribbean Cruise Lines

Most of the major cruise lines go to ports in the Caribbean. The line that is right for you depends on your personal preferences. Disney Cruise Line is popular because there are always activities onboard to keep small children occupied. However, the ships all have adults-only areas so you and your spouse can get away for a little quiet time. As an added perk, your ship may stop at Castaway Key, Disney's private island.

Celebrity Cruises is another top choice; onboard programs cater to all sorts of travelers, from foodies to sports enthusiasts. Possible destinations include the U.S. Virgin Islands, Aruba, and the Bahamas.

For the ultimate in luxury, check out Crystal Cruises. You could eat food prepared by a celebrity chef, book a stay in a gorgeous penthouse suite, and take golf lessons from a PGA professional.

Average Caribbean Cruise Prices

Depending on when you book, a short cruise — between three and five days — is likely to cost between $180 and $700 per person if you're in an interior room without an ocean view. If you want to take a longer cruise of about two weeks, budget between $1,100 and $1,800 per person for an interior room. Most Caribbean cruises depart from Florida, so if you don't live in the Sunshine State, you'll have to include money in your budget for an airline ticket to your port of departure.

Some hotels in Florida offer cruise packages which include lodging the night before and after your cruise, as well as transportation to and from the ship.
