  • Depend on where you live. I live in NY and the Pocanos is our GREAT little get away spot!

  • There's a number of 4 night cruises out of Galveston, TX. I don't know where you are at in TX but I believe this is the closest port for cruises to most areas in TX (I am originally from the Lufkin/Nacogdoches area in TX and lived there for 18 years!). I know its longer than a weekend but might be worth looking into if you have the time to take off! Here's the website:

    If not, the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX is a great place to go too, even if you don't have kids!

  • It all depends on where you live and how much you want to spend!!! I have done a Friday-Monday cruise. Nice but leaves me wanting MORE!!!! We have also done Shiing at Park City Utah from a Thurs- Sunday. again really nice but short. If you have the money to jet away fine. I was lucky and won both of those trips. I would stay closer to home so that travel time wasn't long. We have even gotten hotel rooms an hour or 2 from home for quick get aways. The waterpark hotels are especialy fun. Michigan Is COLD in the winter, It is nice to get an indoor pool and hot tub occasionally to break the monotony.

  • a two day cruise is nice.. but i wouldnt do it.. just when you get your sealegs you gotta go home.. i always take 7 days.. i love cruising.. my mom cruises twice a year.. granted she's single and has virtually no bills. .LOL anyhow.. depending on where you live, try and make it a long weekend.. say leave on wed. and come back monday ... and pick your time too.. cause no body likes out running a hurricane if you go south
