Planning your next adventure vacation? How about Cruising? Take a trip on one of the 37 new ships entering the market place from 2018 to 2020, and traveling to destinations all over the world.
So let’s talk money. How much is a trip on a cruise ship? According to an article written by Cruise Market Watch, the average trip in 2018 was $1,791 per person.
Based on a per-day basis, the average cost (per person, per day) is $223.87. This is $161.62 for the ticket and $62.25 for onboard spending. See.. what a deal!! Plus, did you know the average cruise duration is 8 days?
One thing to keep in mind, all of this is based on averages from travelers on many different cruise ships. In most ticket packages, food is included but fine dining is extra. Plus most cruise lines offer drink packages for an extra cost for alcohol and soda pop. Spa treatments are extras as well. Of course, these averages can go up if you opt to choose a window, balcony or suite cabin over an interior one.
Think of a cruise ship as a hotel. You have many different choices from Mainstream, Premium, and Luxury lines. They offer many different room choices, and amenities like entertainment on-site, restaurants and bars, spas, fitness centers, outdoor recreation, casinos, and family or adult-friendly. The best thing about traveling on cruise ships and visiting different ports of call is you only have to unpack once, and the room travels with you! Most cruise ship itineraries offer port visits during the day and then sea travel at night. Some will have day time water travel mixed in as well. The goal is to relax and enjoy the trip!
