Weeklong cruise from NY for about $64 a day

This certainly qualifies for the deal of the day, if not the week: You can take a seven-night cruise on the Norwegian Jewel from New York to the Bahamas and the Orlando, Fla., area for just $449 per person for an inside stateroom. That's about $64 a day for lodging, unlimited food and entertainment.

For argument's sake, I divided my mortgage payment by 30, factored in the cost of breakfast and lunch at the Newsday cafeteria and a drive-through at McDonald's for dinner, and threw in the price of a movie. Turns out, this cruise would be way cheaper than staying home. I didn't even treat myself to popcorn in my imaginary scenario, and I had to make my own bed.
