Unused vacation days: you have them, and so do your friends and family—it’s a habit in the U.S. According to studies, more than half of Americans did not use all their paid time off in 2015. While concerns over returning to too much work or not having someone to help manage their responsibilities were two of the biggest reasons people weren’t taking time off, advance planning and long trips aren’t required for all vacations. There are plenty of last-minute adventures you can enjoy, like Royal Caribbean’s short cruises. They visit destinations close to the U.S., so they’re short on travel time—yet go to exciting places.

Read on for the best last-minute cruises to book now.
