Travel Advice Needed

Does anyone know of a good website where you can find cheap flights? I'm trying to book a flight to Florida in mid-August, and the cheapest flight I have found is $250. I feel like there has to be something that's less expensive.

I'm also considering taking a New England/Nova Scotia cruise this fall. Has anyone out there done this before and/or taken Norwegian Cruise Lines? If so, how was it? We're also looking into a 5-day cruise from Baltimore to Bermuda, but I'm not sure if it's worth it. You're at sea from Thursday at 4:00 until Saturday at 10:00am, spend 30 hours at Kings Wharf, Bermuda, and then return to Baltimore on Tuesday morning.

Any advice is appreciated!

I usually use sidestep.com to compare flight prices. This does not include Southwest so I usually also check out their website in addition.

As for the cruise, I have never been on one, but if you are looking for any professional advice, my mother-in-law is a travel agent who has booked a lot of cruises. Email me for her email/phone number if you're interested.

I've taken several Norwegian cruises, and while I always have a good time, they are really pooly run. There was a fairly major problem every time I took one. My inlaws had a strike break out the day before they sailed, and the ship ran anyway with a skeleton crew. The best cruise line I ever took was Royal Caribean. I've taken two cruises with them and neither was a problem. One of which went to Bermuda. I definately recomend Bermuda, but only if you go for a little more time.

I don't think that's enough time in Bermuda. We did a 7-night cruise which gave us three solid days in Bermuda, and we still wished we had more time! Also, Hamilton and St. George are better ports of call. We were on Royal Caribbean and loved it.

Thanks for your advice. I'm still not sure if the cruise will take place.

As for the flight to Florida, we booked it through Delta. Sidestep was a good site, and I'll certainly check it out for future flights.

Sean, We are leaving on Friday for our honeymoon on Royal Carribean's Grandeur of the Seas and we are leaving from Baltimore and stopping in Portland, Bar Harbor, Halifax, Saint John and Boston (9 days). I thought it seemed like a good deal we got through Yahoo travel. I will let you know how it was when we get back.
