Spring Break Cruising
In the excitement of preparing for the winter holidays, the warmth of spring – and your desire for a Spring Break vacation – may be far from your mind. However, now is an ideal time to book a Spring Break cruise. While some people book Spring Break cruises more than six months in advance, you’ll find that the selection of destinations and itineraries is still excellent. The choice of staterooms is very good as well, and a cruise consultant can help you select the best one for you and your traveling companions.
In the spring, most cruise vacationers are looking for warm climates, whether to defrost from a northern winter or to get a head start on their summer tans. Popular destinations include the Bahamas; the islands of the Eastern or Southern Caribbean; Mexico’s Caribbean coast, which includes Cozumel, Cancun and the Riviera Maya; and Mexico’s Pacific Coast, also known as the Baja and Mexican Riviera. You could also cruise the Panama Canal, or venture farther south to South America.
Spring Break usually comes a bit too early for cruises to Alaska or Northern Europe, but if you’d like to cruise Europe the Mediterranean is open for business. A Mediterranean cruise can take you to the lovely European cities of Barcelona, Nice, Rome and Venice, to name a few. Or, for a truly refreshing change from winter at home, choose a cruise of the sun washed Greek Isles.
As for cruise fare prices, while we are seeing prices in the Mediterranean higher than they were this time last year, there are still ample reduced fares to the Caribbean cruise locations available. There are Baja and Mexican Riviera sailings with some great offers also available as well.
If you’re worried about sharing your Spring Break cruise with a crowd of rowdy college or high school students, know that most cruise lines have policies that require chaperones for younger guests. There are also particular cruise lines that don’t often act as magnets for the college escapees as well. Merely ask your personal cruise expert for more details.
