Princess Cruises


The 7-day cruises out of Galveston, Texas, depart weekly through April 27, with rates starting at $599 for an inside cabin; three- and four-berth cabins have drop-down beds that come out of the ceiling and make cool lofts for children.


Babysitting at the Princess Kids’ Club: $5 per hour after 10 p.m.

Sign up for excursions in advance using Cruise Personalizer on; you can avoid sellouts and the long lines at the ship’s Shore Excursions desk, which has limited hours. Book spa appointments and specialized fitness classes online up until a week before departure.
