Cruising is one of the most popular modes of travel. People like the idea of visiting several destinations without having to unpack, and having their meals and other activities included in the price. It's particularly convenient for multi-generational travel: kids can take part in organized activities, mom and dad can go to the spa, gram and gramps can play bingo; then everyone can get together for dinner.
And if you're looking for a good value for your vacation buck, look no further than a cruise. Norwegian Cruise Lines (www.ncl.com), for example, is offering a three-day trip to the Bahamas from $169 per person, while Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (www.royalcaribbean.com) is offering a seven-night western Mediterranean cruise from $999 per person. And Radisson Seven Seas Cruises (www.rssc.com) recently announced a buy one, get one free offer on seven-night cruises between San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Puerto Limón, Costa Rica.
