My boss found this great article and I wanted to share parts of it with you. I'm sad summer is over and vacations are ended. But here is a great idea if you are looking for a fall vacation. It's called a repositioning cruise and it's an 11 days or longer cruise while they reposition the boat from where it is no longer needed to the new hot spot. Cruise lines are trying to make these trips more enticing to travelers by offering stops at some pretty amazing place. Oh and did I mention they can be as cheap at $70 a day?! Norwegian Gem offers a cruise starting November 26th. They fly you to Barcelona then put you up for 2 nights at a deluxe Barcelona hotel till the board date. Stops include Cannes, livorne, Rome, Corsica and Malage for 6 days then on to the Straits of Gibralter. You then sail to New York City. 13 day cruise including 7 days at sea. Find it at Online Vacation Center. It costs $1,799 a person.
Or try this one on for size. It departs Sept 25th from Seattle. You stay in a four star hotel for 2 days before getting on the boat, the Celebrity Infinity (and upscale boat) and cruise for 16 days. Two nights at sea sailing to San Diego, a dat at sea, then a stop in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a dat at sea, then Acapulco and Huatulco, Mexico, another day at sea then Puntarenas, Costa Rico, a dat at sea then a day going through Panama Canal then Cristobal, Panama; Cartagena, Columbia then two days at sea and end up in Fort Lauderdale. This cruise is $1,299. Sounds like a blast to me. So if you are looking to get away this fall try a repositioning cruise. Check Travel Themes and Dreams for this one.
