  • the cruise to alaska is realllly beautifull!! especially around june-july. and theyre nice because everythings free (except alcohol) theres sooo many activites on deck, and ya dont have to worry about anything, all you gotta do is relax and have fun!!

    another thing i was gonna say is mexico..(like you there are always amazing deal to go to mexico, all inclusive. my brother and sis in law are headed there in a few weeks, and they are staying for a week, all inclusive, and they paid about $1600 for the 2 of them (flight and all inclusive hotel) not sure what part theyre going to (but hey've ben there before), but, im pretty sure different parts cost different amounts. good luck...happy hunting!!

  • My suggestion is San Juan, P.R. YOu can find good prices at The trip I arranged for Spring Break for flight and hotel cost $1700. San Juan is 80 degrees year round and simply beautiful, plus you don't have to have a passport or visa, as it is our territory.

  • Chicago is really fun. You don't need a car to get around. There are so many things to do, lots of them are free.

  • I really recommend going here:

    It's all-inclusive, and beautiful.  We had a really wonderful trip there.

  • You should be able to get screaming deals to Cancun. Really. Check. or just google resorts down there and package it yourself. I'd avoid an allinclusive as I believe it will exceed your price range. Florida is a good place too and I agree with P. Rico. Last of all, continental flys to Freeport, Bahamas and Our Lucaya is a nice resort. You get the island idea without the huge cost of other Bahamain Islands.

  • cruise!!!! There are some military specials!!!! 2000$ will get you a great deal!! If you do Carribean. maybe look into Europe? The airfare to Alaska will kill you and the cruises there are high in june.
