Our editors were impressed when they came across this little gem: a nine-night cruise leaving from Miami starting from $549 this spring. The Norwegian Dawn will first reach Samana, in the Dominican Republic, followed by Road Town, Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. After, sail on to Antigua, where the locals proclaim that they have 365 beaches one for each day of the year. (Talk about living the dream!) Then its on to Barbados, still brimming with unspoiled coastline and sugarcane fields before rounding out the vacation on the volcanic island of St. Kitts. Lowest rates were found for April 8 through 17, however other dates are also available.
THE VALUE: Most Southern Caribbean Cruises embark from Puerto Rico or Bridgetown, meaning youll have to tack on extra rates for airfare. On top of that, this cruise is priced up to 66 percent off! Plus, Cruises Only is offering a 10 percent discount on shore excursions and discounts at the spa.
THE CATCH: Youll be embarking from Miami during busy spring break, so book your flight and hotel stays in advance.
