Consider a cruise to nowhere

If you’re a first-time cruiser unsure about committing to a longer trip, ask your travel agent about a short “cruise to nowhere.” There are no ports of call and no real itinerary. You set sail, fl oat at sea, and return home. That’s it. These cruises last between two and four days, usually over a weekend, and they cost just a few hundred dollars. If you are concerned about seasickness, look for a single-night cruise from New York, Miami, or Fort Lauderdale so you can test your sea legs.
