May Getaway – Nick’s Travel Picks for May, 2010

Welcome to the first edition of Nick’s Travel Picks, where each month I’ll select my favorite travel deal or vacation package and highlight it here.

This month’s featured travel deal is the very affordable, very enticing discount cruises offered at I just discovered this site recently, and I have to say, well done. They offer cruises to the Caribbean, Europe, Alaska, Bermuda and a few other locations. You can sort by cruise line, duration of trip, location, and several other metrics, so it’s pretty easy to find a cruise to suit your taste. They feature reviews, planning tips, and all sorts of other useful info as well, so that should help you make your decision if you’re indecisive like me.

Personally, my pick would be the Eastern Caribbean Cruise – it’s a 7-day cruise that visits Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas,  and Half Moon Cay. I’ve been to Grand Turk before and it’s absolutely incredible, with some of the most unbelievably pristine beaches you’ll ever see. This package also comes with a $125  on-ship credit, so for $599 total for 7 days that sounds like a bargain to me.

Brown Deck ShoesAnd last, but not least, I went for a nautical themed vacation package for this month because I just bought a new pair of deck shoes, and they’re begging to be in a more tropical territory. Something about boat shoes in the Arizona desert isn’t quite the same :)

Got any suggestions for the next edition of Nick’s Travel Picks? Send me an email with your recommendations!
