Why It's a Deal November rates for an interior cabin on the six-night Mexican cruise aboard Holland American Line start at $699 per person. Add to that $275 for round-trip air between New York and San Diego (Frontier) and $107 per person for a night at Paradise Point Resort & Spa and you'd be paying $1,181 per person. For $12 less, this deal gets you the round-trip airfare, a night in San Diego, and the seven-night cruise—plus a transfer to the port.

More Additional pre- and post-cruise nights are available at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa from $83 per person, per night. Guests aboard the MS Vaandam can also upgrade to a verandah cabin from $600 additional per person.
