In a perfect world, money or vacation days wouldn’t be an issue, and we’d never wallow in uncertainty about when our next cruise was taking place. But there is a cure for the lag time that could satisfy that inevitable itch to get away… short cruises.
These two-, three-, four- and five-night itineraries are a great way to recharge, and cruisers have more options than they might think. But before we explain why, we were curious to see how the majority of our members and followers felt about them.
What we asked: How do you feel about short cruises?
What they said: The largest chunk of our poll takers – 41.72 percent – must save their pennies for longer trips, as they consider short cruises a waste of time and money. Many, though, have positive feelings about quick escapes; a total of 46.12 percent either rate them a great weekend trip or would consider one in the future.
Short cruises are not just a perk for Floridians. Our list of best short cruises also includes itineraries from ports such as New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. And for even more options of weekend cruises and three- to five-night cruises, use our Find a Cruise tool to search by specifics. If you’re able to swing a fare as low as your grocery store bill, we say go for it.
Stay tuned for a recap of my weekend cruise aboard the newly refurbished Disney Magic, coming next week.
