Cruise Deals to Make the Most of Spring Break

When it comes to spring break, one of the ways to get the most bang for your buck is with a cruise. Not only will you unpack just once and visit myriad places, all of your food is included, and maybe even drinks for you parents. Let’s take a look at some spring break cruise deals to make the most of your time at sea.

If Central America is in your sights, along with its warmer temperatures, consider the Costa Rica & Panama Canal sailing on March 10 with Windstar Cruises. At just $2,300 a person, this seven-day cruise sails from Colón, Panama, to Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica, with loads to see and do along the way. Families with older children (Windstar is unable to accommodate children under 8) will delight in learning from the naturalist that sails onboard the entire time, providing insights and expertise about the region’s flora and fauna, not to mention tips on wildlife viewing. Sloths, anyone? Add to that the thrill-filled excursions such as ziplining, surfing and sport fishing and your family is sure to have an amazing spring break.

Norwegian Cruise Line’s popular Free at Sea promotion is extended through the month so you and your family can enjoy even more fun on the high — and calm — seas. Book a three-night or longer sailing in an ocean-view, balcony, or mini-suite stateroom and choose two “free choices” from five options. Choices include the free unlimited open bar for those 21 and up; a free specialty dining package; $50 toward show excursions in each port, per stateroom; 250 minutes of free onboard WiFi; or the Friends & Family sail free offer — third and fourth guests sail free on many sail dates throughout the year. If you and your family splurge for a suite or The Haven by Norwegian, you will enjoy all five free offers, $2,600 in added values.
