THE DEAL: Cruise.com is offering a five-night Western Caribbean cruise aboard Celebrity Constellation, sailing roundtrip from Miami on January 7, 2013. Fares start at $299 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: It’s not too late to plan a last-minute Caribbean getaway on the cheap. This Celebrity cruise to Roatan and Cozumel is priced from $60 per person, per night, with outsides and balconies also coming in under $100 a night. Plus, you may be eligible to receive an additional $50 in onboard credit per cabin. The refurbished ship has quite a few fans, especially now that it’s received some Solstice-Class upgrades, including a new Martini Bar, Bistro on Five creperie, a gelateria and the Tuscan Grille Italian steakhouse.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: If you’re not driving to Miami, you’ll need to hurry up and book a plane ticket stat. You can compare flight prices on our sister site TripAdvisor’s meta-search tool. The cruise departs on a Monday, so you’ll need to use a week’s worth of vacation time for just a five-night trip.
