Our phone's been ringing off the hook (yay!) with clients seeking last-minute holiday deals and this is good news for the cruise lines that have gone the aggressive route to fill up their ships. It's also great news for any of you who haven't yet made plans to celebrate the New Year in a special way, as you can still score a last-minute vacation at sea: Celebrity's brand new 2,800-passenger Solstice (with a fabulous kids' program for all ages, a Vegas-style casino, HUGE spa/fitness center and five gourmet specialty restaurants) has space available on its Dec. 28th sailing from Ft. Lauderdale to Ft. Lauderdale, with stops in San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten--from about $5,000 for two. Royal Caribbean's brand new Liberty of the Seas (sister to the Freedom) sails the Western Caribbean (Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Mexico) on Dec. 27th for 7 nights from about $5,400 for two. Or, set sail for South America and Antarctica aboard the Crystal Symphony, departing Dec. 22 from Valpraiso, Chile with stops in the Falkland Islands, and Uruguay, docking in Buenos Aires on Jan. 9th. Prices from $7,995/person for the 18-day holiday adventure, Crystal Cruise-style. NB: All bookings are eligible for $100 onboard credit when booked through Elite Travel International as our holiday gift to you!
