THE DEAL: CruiseWise.com is offering a 13-night transatlantic cruise aboard Celebrity Reflection, sailing from Barcelona to Miami on November 18, 2012. Fares for an inside cabin start at $699 per person, outside cabins start from $889 and balconies from $799.
WHAT WE LOVE: From less than $54 per night, you can sail aboard a brand-new ship over the Thanksgiving holiday. If you have a little more in your budget, consider booking a balcony cabin as they’re currently selling for less than outside cabins. You might even be eligible to receive up to $125 in onboard credit, dependent on cabin category booked.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: While the itinerary features visits to three ports in Spain, it also includes a whopping nine days at sea. Reflection will have plenty of activities to entertain you onboard – from speaker series to cooking competitions, dance classes and spa treatments – but if you prefer exploring different destinations or get claustrophobic when you don’t see land for a week, this is not the cruise for you. Also, don’t let one-way airfare into Barcelona and out of Miami break your budget. You can compare flight prices on our sister site TripAdvisor’s meta-search tool.
