THE DEAL: CruiseWeb.com is offering a weeklong Bahamas cruise aboard Norwegian Jewel, sailing roundtrip from New York, on October 14, 2012. Rates start at $464 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: This mid-autumn cruise visits Port Canaveral, Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau from just $66 per night, an especially great deal if you live in the Northeast and can save the cost of airfare by driving or taking the train to and from the cruise port. Plus, CruiseWeb.com is offering up to $75 in onboard credit and/or a coupon book worth up to $400 in onboard savings.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: This cruise sails during hurricane season, so if there’s a storm threatening to touch down around the Bahamas, the cruise may be diverted to alternate ports in order to ensure passenger safety. If you’re set on visiting these Bahamian ports, you may want to wait to sail until the season is over.
