This holiday season, Santa is making a wish list and checking the prices twice. Considering the great deals on cruise vacations this November and December, he could be parasailing on Christmas Eve rather than riding a sled.

We have seen some seven-night Cruises that can be booked for well under $1,000 per person. Click here to see: Thanksgiving Cruises , Christmas Cruises and New Years Cruises

In addition to stretching your gift budgets further, the following are some more great reasons for cruise vacationing during the holidays:

Less Stress - The hustle and bustle of the holidays makes it hard to celebrate. Rather than worrying, take a relaxing cruise with the family where all your needs are taken care of by the ship's crew.

Unique Gifts - If someone is looking for a truly memorable gift to give, a cruise vacation is a surprise break from the norm. Plus, the gift giver usually gets to go along.

Family Memories - When does a teenager actually want to go along with his or family on vacation? Chances are when a cruise is planned with plenty to see and do.

Value - An all-inclusive cruise vacation, featuring accommodations, food and most entertainment, can save families hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars versus land-based resorts over the holidays.

Kids Entertainment - Children of all ages are not bored on a cruise ship, with swimming, rock climbing, beach combing, water sports, games, music, exploring and more fun on the agenda each day.

Tropical Weather - With no snow on the ground and plenty of blue sky above, a sun-soaked holiday season on a Caribbean or Mexican cruise is unlike any other.

Picturesque Ports - Take the chill out of the air with white sandy beaches on the cruise lines' private Caribbean islands. Various ports-of-call celebrate the holidays in grand style, making for truly memorable visits.
