Florida Resident Perk – Cheap Cruises!!
We moved to the Orlando area to be next to Disney World, and we love visiting the parks! We got another perk when we moved to Disney though … cheap and convenient Caribbean and Bahamas cruises!!
Before we became Florida locals we took cruises when we came on our Disney family vacation. Now it’s super easy and affordable to take a cruise when we want to because we’re only 1+ hours from multiple ports!
We have Port Canaveral, Tampa, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami to choose from, and since we work at home and homeschool the kids we can watch for cruise deals and book close to the sail date to save big bucks!
Last March we went on the Carnival Glory out of Miami for a 7 day cruise to Mexico and paid a fare of $289 per person (plus cruise port taxes + fees). That’s a really good price for a week long cruise!

In August I found a 4 night cruise on the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas for just $199 pp – which I thought was great! Elizabeth and I booked that cruise and took a trip without the kids, a Sisters Cruise!
You can watch the vlogs of our fun adventures on and off the ship below. We have a whole playlist dedicated to that cruise so make sure to subscribe and enjoy!
The very next month (exactly one month after our Sisters Cruise), we took another cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas with Mahnara and Zarius. We loved the ship so much we just had to bring the kids, and we got an even better deal! $119 pp!!
With all three of our cruises last year we booked no longer than 14 days out, which is the way to go when it comes to cruise specials.
I know not everyone can just up and go on such short notice, but there’s always cruise deals available, and I highly recommend Vacations To Go. We’ve been booking our cruises with then since 2003!
