It's that time of year again. There's a chill in the air, television commercials are spattered with big red bows and snowflakes, and you just may be starting to feel like you're quickly running out of time. But don't fret, Cruise Critic is here to give you a kick start with our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. We've jam-packed this year's edition with gift suggestions for every cruiser in your life -- including first-timers, Caribbean fanatics and even the youngest of sea-goers. And don't forget, you may be able to catch great bargains on any number of these items on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Editor's Note: For even more fun and practical gifts for your favorite cruisers check out the Cruise Critic store, where you'll find neat travel gear including packable jackets, reusable water bottles, travel tumblers and more.
