No time for a long cruise? Never been on a cruises and not sure if it’s for you? Try a short three day cruise from Miami, Florida. Miami’s close proximity to Bahamas makes it possible for these short cruises to get you to a tropical destination (or two or three!) in just a few days. Most of the short cruises have Friday departures, which are great for making the most of your weekend.
Short cruises are a great way to fit a vacation into a busy schedule, and a great way for first time cruisers to see what cruising it like and to try out all the cruise ship fun and amenities.

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
