cruiseIf you’re not convinced that cruising is for you, think about taking a test run on a shorter trip. It’ll give you a sample without investing a lot of time or money.

How about…a cruise to nowhere? This May, Carnival Cruise Lines has a cruise that sails from Norfolk out to sea for two days. It starts at $320 a person and that includes all your meals and entertainment.

A two-day cruise on the Carnival Breeze starts and ends in Galveston, from just $240 a person.

Or look for cruises that make one stop. Norwegian Cruise Line has a weekend cruise on the Norwegian Pearl, from Seattle to Vancouver.

The price tag? Only $89 per person.

Also, you can sail for two nights from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau, in the Bahamas, for about $350 a person.

Now these short cruises aren’t for everyone. They tend to attract younger crowds, for one thing. But if you’re not ready to invest a whole week on a ship, it’s a great way to start.
