Running out of vacation days? A cruise is still possible.
When you’re short on time, squeezing in a satisfying escape can feel like a tall order.

Miami touts the most weekend sailing options, each on offer year-round. Norwegian Cruise Line runs three-night itineraries to the Bahamas aboard the 2,004-passenger Norwegian Sky. The ship embarks at 5 p.m. on Fridays, docks in Nassau on Saturdays, and then visits the line’s private isle Great Stirrup Cay on Sundays, before returning to Miami at 7 a.m. on Monday mornings. (Enhancements to Great Stirrup Cay include a soon-to-debut lagoon enclave, featuring 22 private villas and a Mandara Spa.) The Norwegian Sky—with its 11 bars, two swimming pools, and ten dining venues—is the sole Norwegian ship to offer all-inclusive beverage pricing, a concept that debuted in early 2016, which extends to complimentary and unlimited beer, wine, and premium spirits.
Look to Carnival, meanwhile, for weekend Bahamas sailings that embark from Miami aboard the 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory, featuring “Fun Ship” amenities like a 214-foot-long waterslide, Seuss at Sea kids’ programming, more than a dozen bars, a comedy club, and more.

The Inspiration is fresh off a major renovation that brought on a slew of new food-and-drink venues like Guy’s Burger Joint, Alchemy Bar, and the RedFrog Rum Bar/BlueIguana Tequila Bar.
For a really short and sweet escape, look to Disney’s two-night Baja cruises from San Diego, aboard the 2,713-passenger Disney Wonder, with popular onboard spots like the Twist ‘n’ Spout water slide, Dory’s Reef splash zone, and the Wide World of Sports deck.
