THE DEAL: Cruise.com is offering an 11-night transatlantic cruise aboard Caribbean Princess, sailing from New York to Southampton, on May 3, 2012. Rates start at $599 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: This last-minute ocean crossing has a unique itinerary — it makes stops in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Dublin, Ireland, and Greenock, Scotland, rather than the more typical Mediterranean ports you find on transatlantic cruises. Plus, this sailing has seven sea days making it the perfect opportunity to catch up on some R&R.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: This cruise sails in just over a month, so it might be a challenge to get time off of work and make all your travel arrangements with such little notice.
