Tampa Bay Packages
When you think vacation packages in Tampa Bay, you think: air, hotel and car rental. And while this type of package is certainly available (WestJet vacations offers a variety of air & hotel packages in the Tampa Bay area), there is another package option that has become increasingly popular with visitors to Tampa Bay: Cruise Packages!
Cruising can be a great vacation experience independently. Or it can be a wonderful add-on to an existing holiday as many cruise lines provide short durations such as 4 and 5 nights. When you cruise, the accommodations and all of your meals onboard the ship are included in your package price. Use of the many amenities and facilities onboard are also included, as well as stops in great destinations throughout Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean. Certain drinks such as beer, wine and spirits are not routinely included in the price, but some cruise lines will offer a ‘drinks package’ for pre-purchase. Airfare from Canada, transfers from the airport to the cruise terminal and pre and post hotels in Tampa Bay can be added to your package, enhancing its overall value.
