Need to get away now? Book one of these last-minute cruises!

Sometimes, life leans on us until we get dangerously close to our breaking point. If you find yourself in this situation, it’s important to take a step back and remember that life isn’t about martyring yourself at work.

If you want to have a happy, balanced life, stop being so stubborn and make use of your vacation days for once. If you simply cannot take it anymore, then hop online and find a great cruise deal.

There are plenty of them out there, as the staterooms of late cancellations are worthless if they don’t have paying customers filling them.

The more people there are on the ship, the more money that gets spent in shops, restaurants, and in onboard bars/nightclubs.

Now that you are convinced of their existence, here are some destinations you should try to snag via a last-minute cruise deal…

1) Adriatic Sea

During the summer season, the Mediterranean is easily one of the most popular destinations among those looking to take a cruise.

With long, hot, dry summers and gorgeous beaches with crystal clear waters, it’s not exactly a mystery why this is the case.

While it is a skinny body of water north to south, it extends for thousands of kilometres west to east, making for plenty of itinerary possibilities.

Of all the routes, we recommend going with one that focuses on the Adriatic. Often leaving from Athens, cruises that ply these waters often pay a visit to Greek and Roman ruins and with stops in places like Dubrovnik and Kotor, there will be plenty of Old World cities to explore if lying in the sun all day isn’t your thing.

2) Alaska

A gorgeous but stormy land, Alaska has a beauty that reveals itself to visitors for only a few short months each year.

During this time, there are many cruises that ply sheltered channels made possible by the islands in its Eastern Panhandle.

Throughout this journey, you’ll see many glaciers that descend from coastal mountains all the way to the ocean, thick forests unmolested by human hands, and wildlife like grizzly bears and bald eagles.

3) Caribbean

Suggesting a Caribbean cruise might not be the most original suggestion that a travel blog has ever made, but there’s a reason why this region helped give birth to the modern cruise industry.

The islands located in this dreamy, warm sea are the subject of the wildest fantasies many folks have, as their sugary white sand, swaying palms, and the warm people that call this place home have drawn people back year after year.

From the Bahamas to Grenada, Barbados to Jamaica, there are countless itineraries that will take you to places that will become your new favourite places in the world.
