If you’re wishing for a tropical getaway this winter, put one of these cheap Caribbean cruises on your list.

Cruises can be a great way to combine the ease and relaxation of an all-inclusive vacation with the excitement of visiting several different islands. And travel deals on a variety of Caribbean cruises mean that there’s an affordable option for everyone.

A Five-night Western Caribbean cruise on the Celebrity Century starts at just $199 for the January 26 and February 9 sailings. You’ll sail to Key West and Grand Cayman — all while enjoying the $55 million in new ship features from a recent renovation.

This Seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise won’t feel like a cheap cruise, with ten restaurants, a spa, champagne bar and much more. But book an interior room for the February 14 sailing, and you’ll pay just $499. This cruise on the Norwegian Dawn includes stops in St. Thomas, the British Virgin Islands and a private island in the Bahamas.

On this Seven-night Western Caribbean cruise, you can dine at 12 restaurants, swim with dolphins in Roatan, Honduras; explore the coral reef off the coast of Cozumel and much more. All of that comes with a cheap cruise price tag of $479 for an interior room for the February 22 sailing. This cruise aboard the Norwegian Pearl also includes stops in Belize City and a private Bahamas island.
