THE DEAL: Cruise.com is offering a weeklong Western Mediterranean cruise aboard Adventure of the Seas, sailing roundtrip from Malaga, on select sail dates in May 2012. Rates start at $344 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: With four port stops and nightly rates from just $49 per night, these last-minute sailings offer a lot of destination value for your money. Plus, the itinerary features less common Mediterranean ports like Valencia, Spain, and Corsica, France. Cruise.com is even offering prepaid gratuities for the first and second passengers sharing a cabin.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Last-minute airfare to and from Malaga might be pricey, but the money you’ll save on gratuities will likely help to offset the cost .
