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.

About Us

Diana Whiteside

I am Diana Whiteside, owner of Cruise Holidays of Northwest Austin.


I have been a resident of Austin since we moved here when I was in second grade, so I consider myself a native. After graduating from high school in Austin I went on to Texas A&M and received my Bachelors Degree in Education. I returned to Austin where I became a teacher and raised my family.

During that time my family and I cruised often so it didn't take long for me to make a transition to becoming a business owner of a travel agency.

 

Though we are called Cruise Holidays of Northwest Austin, we plan other land vacations for our clients. Over the past eight years we have planned trips all over the world.
