Bahamas Cruises From Miami
Bahamas cruises are abundant and, due to the weather on the islands, are year-round.
Most cruises to the Bahamas originate from Florida, many of these from the Port of Miami.
I encourage you to read more about Bahamas Cruises From Miami, by clicking here.
Cruise Industry News
Here are two of several things happening in the cruise industry:
1. Empress of the Seas Sails from Miami
Empress of the Seas will begin to offer short cruises from Miami to Caribbean. These cruises will be 4- or 5-nights long and will visit ports such as Nassau, Cozumel, Costa Maya and Grand Cayman.
Empress of the Seas will spend late evenings in some ports and even overnight in others.
Among other things, the 95-acre private island ship port will boast a 2,000 seat amphitheater plus several bars and restaurants.
Ocean Cay promises to
be the most extensive cruise port in the Caribbean.
Plan A Group Cruise
A group cruise is generally comprised of at least 8 cabins (number varies by cruise lines), each with 2 or more passengers.
Group Cruise Ideas: graduation celebration, retirement celebration, family reunions, employee appreciation, club or organization fundraiser, girlfriends' getaway, couples' retreat, church outing, wedding, etc.
Reasons for Planning a Group Cruise:
Cruising with a group is much more fun than cruising alone. I have done both and really prefer sailing with a group. Furthermore, there are perks to be had when cruising as a group.
Plan your group cruise today. Learn more about group cruises here.
On this cruise, each guest is asked to bring a backpack with supplies for orphans in Cozumel. Petes Travel Center will provide the backpacks and guests are asked to volunteer to add the supplies.
The dates are February 15-20, 2016 - Presidents' Day week. It is a 5-day sailing aboard Carnival Elation out of New Orleans to Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico.

What a great time to get away from it all - Labor Day!
Close out summer with a bang. Visit the Bahamas and the beaches, before it gets cold in the US.
The cruise is set for September 5-10, 2016 and will sail from Jacksonville, Florida.
(Note: Ignore the reference to Terrell's family getaway. This cruise sailing is open to anyone interested.)

Cruise Saving Tip
Here is something everyone loves - learning how to save a buck or two on their cruise ship vacation.
Tip: Always Book Into a Group Space
More often that not, if you decide to cruise, you will find friends or relatives willing to go with you.
Whenever you ask a Travel Consultant to set up your cruise, if the sailing is eight (8) months or more away, have your travel expert set up a group booking for you.
Whether or not you have enough people to complete the group booking, you may still be able to land some perks by doing so.
You may end up with at least 5 cabins booked and when you do this with certain cruise lines, your travel consultant will be able to get you some money to spend onboard the ship or some other token of "Thanks."
This token or onboard credit will save you a buck or two.
