Is Cruising Expensive — a Breakdown

 Nothing crawls under my skin more than a real know it all. I experienced one of those type of characters earlier this evening.. they told me — Cruising is WAY too Expensive!  (not to mention super cheap with these economic times).

Really?  Compared to what I asked?  No response.  My thoughts exactly.

Let’s do some math, shall we?

The following is based on a family of four:


3 night Orlando, Fla. Vacation:

Hotel (resort): 600.00
Theme Park Tickets (3 day): 932.00
Food (3 days) 480.00
Total: $2,012.00


3 night Cruise Vacation to Bahamas on Royal Caribbean:

Cruise Fare (w/taxes) 896.63
Hotel: included
Food : included
Total: $896.63

As you can see, taking a cruise saves you over $1,100.00.   Hmm, maybe it isn’t such a small world after all?

Keep in mind this comparison was based on average resort prices, meals, and passes to theme parks. Prices may vary. Void where prohibited. Dealer retains rebate…. kidding!

  1. cruise ship really leads you to luxury..
    but it’s a great experience passing through that moment because its an unexplainable feeling of pampering ones’ self

  2. I never thought about it that way! Good way to present it, in black and white. We just went to Epcot for 1 day and we probably spent the amount for 2 people (1/2 of the cruise fare) for that. We could have cruised for 3 nights. Thanks for the info Doug!
