When it comes to Thanksgiving, whats not to love? It means time off from work, a chance to catch up with relatives, and of course, ridiculous amounts of delicious food (that someone else prepared). However, if Thanksgiving is scheduled at your house this year, the warm holiday glow may not be shining as bright. Before you start firing up the oven theres another tempting option: This 7-night cruise aboard the brand new Carnival Dream will have you relaxing on a beach in the Bahamas instead of packaging up leftovers and cleaning dishes. With rates starting as low as $499, that guilt about ditching the in-laws will disappear the moment you step on the ship.Launched this September, the Carnival Dream is the cruise lines largest creation and it showcases new features like the mid-ship Seaside Theatre, a two-deck mini-golf course, and a laser light show. After embarking from New York City on November 23, passengers will have two leisurely days at sea to try the ship on for size before reaching Port Canaveral, Florida. After that, the Dream will call on both Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas before making its way back to New York.
Interior cabins on this cruise are priced from just $499 (originally $1,819) for a total savings if nearly 73 percent! Plus, New Yorkers can save even more by sailing out of their home port and avoiding the cost (and hassle) of flying to another embarkation port. Instead, they can take those savings and upgrade to a balcony cabin which are available for just $729.
