THE DEAL: Cruise.com is offering a four-night cruise aboard Norwegian Sky, sailing roundtrip from Miami, on October 15, 2012. Rates start at $189 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: With nightly rates from as little as $47 and stops in Freeport, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, this short cruise offers a lot of value for your money. You could even get $25 in onboard credit per cabin and/or a complimentary bottle of wine, dependent on cabin category booked.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: This cruise sails during hurricane season, so if there’s a storm threatening to touch down around the Bahamas, the ship may skip ports or 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, when fares are a bit more expensive.
