Cruises are a wonderful way to beat the winter blues and spend fun, quality time with the whole family. Though maybe not ideal for land-lovers, cruise ships are chock-full of great food, gambling, kid-friendly activities and 5-star entertainment—not to mention a variety of excursion options at every port. From snorkeling in the Caribbean, zip-lining through lush, tropical rain forests or walking on a glacier in Alaska (perhaps a cruise best left for the toastier summer months), on-land excursions provide cruisers the opportunity to explore new places in as adventurous or relaxing manner desired.
