There’s no limit to the number of families with children that have a week out of school for spring break. Don’t forget about all of the college students looking for fun  and some relaxation from their hectic class schedules.   My suggestion for your spring break getaway,  take a  cruise to the Bahamas!   It’s a short 3 or 4 day cruise and you do not have to be away the entire break.   Choose anyone of favorite cruise lines during the months of March and April to find the best values for a short cruise.

Plan ahead if you want to take a cruise longer than four days!

so nervous and excited all at the same time.  As I was waiting in line to board, I thought to myself this cruise ship is huge and I cannot wait to see what my stateroom looks like.  

In my wildest imagination I could not believe I was onboard a floating resort.  The service, entertainment and the dining was unbelievable.  Arriving at different ports of call and not being limited to one destination while on vacation was great.  I only had to pack my bags once for this cruise; this was the most important to me.    Without a doubt, I fell and I am still in love to this day with cruising.   

A time saving tip I always tell my clients is to not over pack.  You will only wear half of what you bring onboard the cruise.  You will save a lot of money at the airport on luggage fees.
