My mom is ending her Chemo for breast cancer this month, and my family is thinking about celebrating with a cruise during spring break (march 19-26th). Does anyone have any outstanding reccomendations for a weeklong cruise for a mother whos been couped up in a house for 6 months? Thanks for your help

What a wonderful way to celebrate her recovery! Having dealt with a similar situation myself, I would suggest you choose a cruise that offers sun, sand and relaxation! As her energy level may not yet be back to normal, I would suggest you select a cruise that would not require a long flight to the port or anything too port intensive. Since it appears you are from CA, I think a Mexican Riviera cruise might be the perfect ticket. Royal Caribbean's Vision of the Seas and the Diamond Princess both offer 7 night Mexican Riviera cruises out of Los Angeles which are both good choices.

Another very relaxing Mexican cruise is the Holland America Sea of Cortez cruise - Loreto, La Paz and Cabo San Lucas. It was the most relaxing, refreshing, rejuvenating cruise I've been on. Congratulations to your mom on her recovery.

Actually, my parents went to Mexico for their honeymoon, and my mom was actually thinking about an alaskan cruise, she wont have that much trouble flying because it will be six months after her chemo sessions have ended, is march a good season for Alaskan Cruises, or is it more of a Carribean Season? Thanks much

Kevin,
The Alaska cruise season does not begin until May - so it looks like it will be a Caribbean cruise. You may want to act quickly, however, as Spring Break cruises are already filling rapidly.
