Princess Cruises knows how to make lemonade when life tosses them lemons, by turning what was deemed an “unnecessary maintenance period” into a profitable opportunity for guests to check out the new Ruby Princess.

Now that we’re well into April, I know the last thing you probably want to think about is winter, but get over that for a moment and remember just how hectic the holidays were last year. Princess has envisioned a nice little solution to the holiday headache, by offering two new 3-night sampler sailings from Fort Lauderdale on December 14, and 17. Forget about gift wrap, cleaning the house, or putting up with the in-laws for a bit while you relax on the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas.

Plus, you’ll get to see the shiny new features on the Ruby, like the poolside “Movies Under the Stars” experience, the adults-only Oasis, and a 3-hour behind-the-scenes tour of the ship. This "Ultimate Ship Tour" takes passengers to the engine room, ship's command center, the galley, backstage area, and more. Prices start at just $249 for interior cabins, so do something useful with those lemons and save your sanity.
