    Anyone hear of anything out there right now for a summer get away in the Carib? We're pretty flexible for dates and times. I can get to a resort in Cancun for myself, wife and 2 kids for $2669 all inclusive out of Grand Rapids for a week, but my wife won't go to Mexico right now...bummer, cuz THAT is a smokin' deal!

    Have you checked Priceline? I know they have some deals that are too good to pass up...

    bookit.com has a deal right now that ends tonight. I heard an ad on XM. Don't know how reputable they are.

    Not too hard to find them, either. My daughter and I are divers, I got on Expedia last night just for fun and was looking at flight/hotel packages to Cozumel, was half-seriously thinking about a trip for her fall break in October. Now, we just went this past March. For this October, we can go for $1000 less than we just paid 3 months ago, and the prices in March were pretty good to start with. When I saw that I went from half-serious to very serious really fast.

    Boy do I have the deal for you! I've been receiving calls from Caribbean Cruise Line several times a week & have listened to the offer. 2 days on the cruise w/ 7 days in Florida at Orlando & Fort Lauderdale w/ hotel & meals paid. Also 7 day car rental.
    The cruise ship, Bahamas Celebration, is a newly fitted/renovated ship w/ purchase history on the internet. As a new ship, they are marketing the cruise for $50 customs plus $250 for the 7-day deal FOR 2 PEOPLE. Ask for the free cabin upgrade from inside to outside for an ocean view. Sounds like out-of-pocket is about $300.00 for 3 people for 7 days w/ meals. What do you think?

    Not really into cruises, but these deals you guys posted are excellent. Some deals out there that I've found through my exaustive searching are too good to be true, they must include listening to Time Share BS. Just FYI, that is the reason for my original post, to find someone that knows of "authentic" trips, not scam filled/high pressure selling tactics. It was not laziness on my part. Thanks for all the tips!!

    Unfortunate that your wife is unwilling to go to Mexico, you're perfectly safe there. Took my entire family a few months back and the military presence was obvious. They're not taking any chances with their tourists, it's their lifeblood.

    We've just booked a trip to Grand Cayman, got a great rate at a beachfront all-suites hotel. Don't be afraid to call the hotel of your choice directly and ask for a better deal.

    I just paid $850 per person for a 9 night Mexican Riviera cruise in a Balcony room in November. I would seriously look into a cruise. Just be flexible on which islands you want to visit since hurricane/tropical storm activity can cause a cruise line to adjust the ports of call without notice.
