Carnival Transatlantic Cruise Bargains
You would think such a long cruise would be a hugely expensive trip to make (my mother made the crossing once on the QEII and it was a pretty price trip then), but I've been looking at the Carnival Cruise site lately and I'm pretty shocked at how affordable a 15-day transatlantic jaunt can be. You can cruise aboard the Carnival Legend from Tampa to Europe, with stops in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Portugal and Spain (terminating in Barcelona) for as low as $629 (interior room) to $799 for a balcony room, per person. Considering that cruises include your room and meals and tons of entertainment (most included in the cruise price), that seems like quite a bargain. Of course, 15 days aboard a ship is quite a long time, but think of this great benefit: you only unpack once! And if, like me, you'd love to escape from your normal routine for a while and be pampered along the way, a cruise--any cruise--is something to consider!
By the way, feel free to leave comments or your post your experiences cruising. It's been a while since I've been on a cruise, but I have to tell you, seeing Bermuda rise up from the sea at dawn with a cup of tea in my hand was quite an experience!
