Make a Wish Come True by Cruising Oasis of the Seas
Wish Kid Emma Cruise (7:12 p.m. EST) -- Make not one, but many wishes come true by booking a cabin on the November 30, one-night preview cruise onboard Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. For starters, you'll grant your own wish to sail on the largest and most innovative ship ever built (and be one of the very first people to do so). But, more importantly, 100 percent of the sales from 1,000 designated cabins will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

Even though the sailing departs in less than two weeks, space is still available. Fares include invitations to the official ship christening ceremony and an open bar. All of Oasis' many amenities will be open for guest use, including the rock-climbing wall, FlowRider surf simulators, carousel and zip line. You can take a stroll through Central Park and the Boardwalk, watch a diving show in the AquaTheater, enjoy a special dinner in the Opus Dining room, laugh until your sides hurt at Comedy Live and take your chances in the Casino Royale.

Also, travelers who book the Make-A-Wish cruise package can access special discounts on the four-night cruise departing the following day, December 1. Fares for the one-night cruise start at $250 per person, based on double occupancy; prices for the four-night sailing start at $650. Higher-category cabins are more expensive. Cruise fares are deductible to the full extent of the law under 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.

You can book both the one-night and four-night cruises by contacting Cynthia Paez at cpaez@rccl.com or 877-202-1520, ext. 12751. In addition, cabins for the one-nighter are also being sold on eBay. You might think it's a lot of money to pay for just one night -- but, then again, it's not a bad price for making a couple of wishes come true.
