Cruises.Hankering for a voyage on the deep blue seas? Finding a cheap cruise is not an impossible dream, and we identified several cruise lines and ships that offer a fun and relaxing respite from daily life on dry land. For less than $75 a day, per person, you can cruise to spots like the Caribbean aboard megaships that carry enough people to populate a small city. Don't expect luxury accommodations or haute cuisine, but there'll be plenty to eat and a place to lay your head, as well as parties galore, daytime activities, and some time to wander the ports of call.
