Why it's a deal: The cruise price, all taxes included, breaks down to about $88 per person per night, which includes your accommodations, nightly entertainment, and all meals and nonalcoholic drinks. And the included trip insurance is worth $40 per person.

More: Add $63 per person for an oceanview cabin and $445 per person for a balcony cabin. Note that the April 3 departure date coincides with Easter weekend—that's why there's a supplement.
