If saving a boatload wasn't enough, we're highlighting all of our favorite parts of this 7-night Caribbean cruise deal.
With temperatures still in the high 80s, is now the perfect time to take that Caribbean cruise you've been dreaming of? This week, Onboard.com is offering a Carnival 7-night western Caribbean cruise for two departing on September 13 for $398. (It's the third offer on this page; sign up for the free newsletter to see this price.) That's the best price we've seen for any western Caribbean cruise and a current low by $530.
If you just can't find anyone to take your cat at such last notice, don't worry, there are other September dates available for this Editors' Choice price as well. But, we've got a handful of reasons why you should really consider a spontaneous trip this weekend.
8 Reasons to Drop Everything for This Caribbean Cruise
Save So Much Cash You Can Make a Money Suit
Not only does booking this cruise through Onboard.com save you $530 compared to booking elsewhere, it's also the best price we've seen for any western Caribbean cruise!
Roundtrip From Miami
This cruise departs from Miami, so you can get your sunshine on straight away. If you need a cheap flight to get to Florida, check out Spirit's current sale on domestic flights.
Airboat Through Belize's Lagoons
Explore the many lagoons of Belize by airboat and keep your eyes peeled for mangroves, wading birds, turtles, manatees, and more.
Swim With the Dolphins in Cozumel
The Mexican island of Cozumel is surrounded by a coral reef, making it a watery paradise. It's an excellent place to snorkel, but if you really want to get in touch with nature, opt for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with a dolphin.
Silky White Beaches in Roatan
Roatan, Honduras, is the kind of place where you wouldn't mind getting shipwrecked! Spend the day relaxing on the silky white beaches or take a "Magical Flying Chair" chair lift over Mahogany Bay.
Ruins in Costa Maya
Check out the virtually un-excavated Chacchoben Mayan Ruins in Costa Maya, Mexico. The ruins are located in a secluded jungle and are frequently visited by spider monkeys, deer, and even the odd armadillo.
Recreate That Kate & Leo Moment From Titanic (Minus the Iceberg)
The Carnival Glory, renovated as recently as 2012, is perfect for a romantic getaway, with an adults-only "Serenity" deck. This deck is on the uppermost level with stunning views of the sunset and plenty of hammocks, hot tubs, and loungers to get up close and personal with your sweetheart.
Save Throughout September
Although our feature cruise leaves this weekend on September 13, Onboard.com also offers departure on September 21 for the same price. Other dates in September are available with prices starting at $229 per person.
