It's a busy world we live in, isn't it?
Are you afraid that cruising is not for you because you just cannot find the time to take a whole week off? Maybe, you just don't want to consume those vacation days with a four- or five-day cruise.
Well, one- and two-day cruises might be just what you are looking for.
These cruises range from a day tour of a local area, such as the bay, if you are visiting San Francisco, for example, or actually "to" a destination, such as day cruises to the Bahamas.
Such cruises used to be common with even the larger cruise lines, but most have not been able to recognize enough of a profit to stay with them.
Today, you may have to hunt a little bit to find such a cruise, but they are there. However, because of the short length, you often have little time to do more than get settled in and begin to explore the ship before your cruise is over.
Many one-day cruises are little more than sightseeing excursions with only a few hours spent aboard the cruise ship itself. Many are also on smaller, older, less exciting ships than those run for longer times by the larger lines.
One alternative is to take a 2-day cruise. You can find many of these on travel sites such as top-travel-deals.ws.
On a 2-day cruise, you have a chance to enjoy the on-board, cruise ship experience, get some entertainment, and some rest, while getting in some sight-seeing as well.
Prices can be quite reasonable, often starting near or even below $200. Of course, you pay for what you get, and a quick check of some available cruises over at top-travel-deals.ws showed prices going up over $300 on the Carnival ship "Breeze" out of Miami.
By the way, if you just want the cruise experience without the sightseeing, there are even cruises to nowhere. On these, the ship sails away, you relax and play on board, and then the ship returns to port the next day.
Don't worry, the captain will get you back in time to get back to work, but, oh!, what memories you will have.
