I'm a college student so I start the fall semester the last week of August, have Christmas break until the second or third week of January. Spring semster is until the second week of May. I really don't want to miss any school and I'm hoping to get my whole family to go on this next one.
See, my mom asked me what I wanted to do for my 21st birthday. She asked me if I wanted to go to Vegas or go on a cruise. Right away I said, "A cruise!!!" And after all the raving we've been doin about the three cruises we've been on, we've gotten the family interested.
If everyone who says that they want to go, goes, that'll be about 30 people. I doubt everyone will be able to go but to make it easier for them to go, the cheaper, the better. We were thinking about one of the holiday cruises but those seem to cost as much as cruising in the summer. So, when is a good time for inexpensive cruises?
What a great way to celebrate your 21st birthday....good choice. Keep in mind that almost all holiday sailings will be pricey. You can usually find some pretty good deals just before Christmas. My best advice would be to contact a Travel Agent and tell him/her exactly what you posted here. They should be able to find something that fits your schedule. Be sure to let us know what you come up with. And Happy Birthday!

I teach college so I have a similar schedule! Try the first week after New Years Day. My husband and I found some incredible deals that week . We had booked an 8 day cruise (cabin with balcony) for about $100 per day per person. Unfortunately, we had to cancel due to his job. Take a look at some of the internet sites such as icruise.com and see if you can find what you want. With so many going you probably can get a discount. Good Luck!
