Five-night cruise from Miami: On select sailings in February, March, and April, Disney’s original ship will be offering their “Marvel Day at Sea,” with costume parades, superhero drawing lessons, video games, and a comic book library. The day culminates in a deck party with fireworks for everyone and, later, a “Guardians of the Galaxy” dance party for grown-ups. Prep for your trip with Walt Disney’s most inspiring quotes.
Carnival Vista, Eastern or Southern Caribbean

Seven nights from Miami: Carnival’s latest, Carnival Horizon, launches in April in the Mediterranean, but if your spring break is earlier—or you don’t want to go that far—consider Carnival Vista. The first ship in its class debuted the RedFreg brewpub, the Seafood Shack (where you can pick out the catch of the day and have it sent to the dining room later prepared any way you like), the colonial style Havana Suites (with a private palapa-topped pool), and the SkyRide, a bicycle suspended over the pool deck. Plus, it also has the decadent hand-grown burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint and scrumptious tacos and burritos at BlueIguana Cantina. Make sure you take advantage of these cruise-booking dos and don’ts from travel experts.
