The deal
The month of November is an ideal time to caste the winter worries away and set sail to sun-soaked beaches before the holiday season hits. It’s also a great time to snag a deal on warm-weather cruises thanks to impressive shoulder season rates.

This 7-night cruise aboard the Norwegian Spirit has a top-notch itinerary to Central America and Mexico and rock-bottom rates starting from as little as $349.

The ship sets sail from New Orleans and after a day spent at sea it makes its first stop at Costa Maya, Mexico — a port town that boasts ancient cities and an unspoiled coastline. Next up is the picturesque port of Puerto Santo Tomas de Castilla, in Guatemala followed by beautiful Belize City.

While docked in Belize, passengers can take advantage of the spectacular snorkeling and diving sites, or head inland on a wildlife tour. Before returning to New Orleans, travelers can also experience the soft sand beaches of Cozumel, Mexico.  In addition to the tremendous savings on interior cabins, oceanview staterooms are available starting from $449. Sailing dates include November 15 and 29.

The catch
Sunglasses not included.
