THE DEAL: Carnival Cruise Lines is offering a seven-night Bahamas cruise onboard Carnival Splendor, sailing roundtrip from New York on November 17, 2013. Prices start from $319, per person, for an inside cabin. Onboard credit and reduced deposits are available.
WHAT WE LOVE: It’s fun, it’s cheap and it’s a great chance to butter up the family before the hectic holidays. From under $50 per person, per night, sail to the Bahamas onboard one-of-a-kind Carnival Splendor. Three different port calls (Port Canaveral, Nassau and Freeport) offer pretty equal port and sea days. With Carnival’s holiday season promotion, book now and receive up to $50 in onboard credit along with half off deposits.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Albeit the tail end of hurricane season, this sailing is still skirting the chance of getting caught up in some unsavory weather. Chances for a big storm might be slim in the Bahamas, but don’t forget that cruising in and out of New York harbor will be on the chilly side this time of year.
