September Deals on Cruises from Miami to the Bahamas

How about a short cruise to the Bahamas this month?

These short cruises provide a nice quick getaway and are a fun opportunity to try out an upgraded cabin. The Carnival Victory has Balcony Cabins available for $110 to $116 a night and Suites for $160 to $166 a night. Right now, the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas has Balcony Cabins priced at the same rate as Oceanview, so you might as well upgrade!  If you’d like to splurge on a suite, the best price we saw for the Navigator of the Seas was $173 a night for the September 9, 16, and 30 departures on a 4 Night Bahamas Cruise to Nassau and Cococay.

If you don’t want to splurge on a cabin upgrade, economical Interior Cabins are available on both ships and average around $70 to $100 a night. Continue reading
