Summer may be the most popular time to take a cruise, but have you ever considered taking one during the off season of winter? There are actually more options to choose from than you may realize. Take a look at some of the ideas listed below and you might be surprised. You can find some great deals and beat the cold, for at least a week or two anyway.

One of the top cruise destination spots is Hawaii, one of our very own states. You can't go wrong there, especially since you won't even have to mess with all the hassles of currency exchange if you decide to go portside to explore. You don't even need a passport. If you want to save a little bit of money on that expense, then Hawaii might just be the perfect cruise destination for you.

Another popular winter cruise destination is the Bahamas. Carnival cruise line is offering this particular destination with a port of call in Nassau. You can go for as little as $184, depending on what room you choose and the dates of travel. At this port you can experience pristine sandy white visit, check out the fabulous marine life, or spend the day shopping. Whatever you do, you're sure to enjoy your day. It is what we would call picture perfect- so take lots of pictures!

How about a nice Caribbean cruise to warm you up? Royal Caribbean offers a nice cruise down in those nice warm waters of the Western Caribbean that feature some great ports of call. You won't be disappointed with a cruise like this because of all of the wonderful memories you'll be sure to make and the many destinations you'll get to see. Included ports of call are, of course your departure port, Florida; Labadee, Haiti; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and then back to Port Canaveral, Florida.

On the flip side, you can also take a Royal Caribbean ship to the Eastern Caribbean waters for a warm getaway. Ports of call here include Cococay, Bahamas; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; Phillipsburg, ST Maarten; as well as your departure and return destination of Port Canaveral, Florida. Prices can start as for just under $600, unless you only want to do a three night cruise. In which case, the price is significantly cheaper.

As long as were thinking about winter cruises to the south, how about a cruise along the Mexican Riviera? Take this cruise to see places like Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. Prices start from just under $500. Experience the Mexican culture while basking in the warmth of the tropical area.

Alternatively, you could head north before you head south. The Royal Caribbean cruise line offers a cruise in December that leaves from the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey to head south for a 14 night Southern Caribbean Cruise. On this cruise you get to see various destinations in Haiti, Dominican Republic, St. Thomas, Barbados, Dominica, Antigua, and St. Maarten. If you are looking for a wide variety of places to visit, all squeezed into one cruise, then this might be the very one for you. It sure can cause all sorts of excitement just thinking about it. As any cruise can do!
