There are few vacations that are better than going on a cruise. This has a reputation for costing a lot of money, though that is not actually the case -- there are great deals to be found and you can travel across the world for much less than you would have thought. Despite this low price, these eco cruises will make you feel like you are sitting in the lap of luxury. You will have everything that you want; the cruises are all-inclusive, so you will be given all of the food, drinks, and entertainment you can handle once you are on board. You can take all of the planning out of your trip -- planning where to eat, how much money to spend, where to go for entertainment -- and just sit back and relax. The beautiful destinations and the graceful elegance of the boat will give you a trip to remember for the rest of your life. The following are three great cruises that can be purchased through Princess Cruises, one of the world's premier vacation lines.
Caribbean Grand Adventure
This is a long cruise, leaving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and lasting for twenty days. Being at sea for nearly three weeks will really give you the time to unwind and disconnect yourself from the stress of life and work back at home. You will travel to a number of excellent tropical locations, including Bridgetown in Barbados, Princess Cays, and St. George's. The cruise also spends a number of days at sea, so you can really get a feel for what it is like to be on the open water, far away from civilization. The cruise ends again in Fort Lauderdale.
14-night Hawaii (Round Trip from Los Angeles)
This is certainly the best way to get to Hawaii, giving you a much more memorable trip than flying in an airplane. The ship leaves from Los Angeles and then spends four days at sea before it arrives in Hilo on Hawaii's Big Island. Hilo is a coastal town set in a cove where you can find many of the things that make Hawaii famous, from coffee farms to sprawling beaches. The trip them moves about the islands, going to Honolulu, Nawiliwilli, and Lahaina. You will see everything the islands have to offer. After that, the ship will take you back to Los Angeles.
7-night Mexican Riviera
You will be able to see Mexico in a whole new light, from a whole new vantage point, and you will find it to be a beautiful and culturally-exciting country. This cruise starts in Los Angeles, then moves to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. These three stops will give you plenty to do on land, exploring the country. The boat will provide great entertainment for the days spend at sea, so you will never be bored no matter how far along you are in the trip. The week-long duration is perfect for a reprieve from school or work, whichever one you need a break from.
