Cruise Pricing Still Favors Consumers

 

Does cruising still represent a good vacation value? According to actual cost data from Cruise Holidays, the answer is a resounding "yes.” Cruise Holidays recently determined the average daily cost per person of three popular cruise destinations (Alaska, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean) for the past three years – and found that cruise prices for 2011 remain very affordable. See the cost comparison below:

 

Average Cruise Cost per Person, per Day*

 

2011       2010 2009 2008
7-day Alaska Cruise $248 $230  $255 

 

$259

7-day Caribbean Cruise $126  $147  $171 

 

$159

12-day Mediterranean Cruise $222  $262  $290  $269

*Average of all categories of cruise lines and staterooms. Includes only the cruise portion of each booking; excludes airfare, shore excursions, etc.

 

Of course, in addition to price, you should take other factors into account when selecting a cruise vacation. You’ll want to consider various destinations and itineraries; whether to sail on a cruise line or ship you haven’t experienced before or revisit one that you enjoyed; and maybe upgrade to a balcony stateroom or suite. Still, in making your decision, it’s helpful to know that cruise prices remain attractive and provide great value. Remember that the basic cost of your cruise includes your accommodations, meals, entertainment and lots of fun and amenities on the ship.

 

To help ensure that you can secure the cruise of your choice at the best possible price, book as early as possible. Cruise prices tend to rise as the sailing date draws closer, so advance booking is always a good practice, especially if you have your heart set on a specific cruise and sailing date. Talk with your personal cruise expert about the best cruise values available right now.
