If anyone has been thinking about a nice vacation in the next few months, many cruise lines have dropped prices to an unprecedented low. Jan.31, you can take a 7 day Caribbean cruise for $489 per passenger on Holland America, one of my favorite lines. If you have been thinking about a getaway, call your travel agent soon! I just got upgraded from a basic ocean view cabin to a suite on my December cruise! Woo-hoo! These islands in the eastern Caribbean need and want your tourist dollar for hurricane recovery. Western Caribbean islands weren't really damaged at all.
