Each year during the fall, a large number of cruise ships sail from northerly ports in Europe to more southerly ones in the Caribbean. Called repositioning cruises, such voyages consist of long stretches of uninterrupted days at sea. If you want, you can ignore the activities and entertainment on board and hunker down at the desk in your cabin and attend to your private business. Most ships have at least some semblance of in-room Internet connectivity and a business center with printers. Repositioning cruises are often relatively inexpensive. A two-week cruise on a luxury cruise ship with food and drink included runs less than $200 a day per person. Plus, the cuisine is usually good, and somebody else cleans your room with an ocean view.
