Mini-Cruises: How to Get Your Feet Wet

If you're debating whether or not to invest in a cruise because you aren't sure it's for you, you might consider taking a mini-cruise to test the waters. In keeping with the general travel trend toward long weekend vacations, mini-cruises are growing increasingly popular.

Norwegian Cruise Line is offering a variety of West Coast mini-cruises coming up this year, starting with a one-day repositioning cruise from Vancouver to Seattle on the Norwegian Star May 4. You can snag an ocean view cabin on that one for $132. Even better, you can board the same ship in Los Angeles May 1 and sail to Vancouver over three days for $308 for an ocean-view stateroom and just $228 for an interior cabin.

My new eBook, "Hot to Save Money on Cruises -- Part II: Tracking Down Discounts" comes with a free bonus book, "Go Mini-Cruising." You can order it at:
