While I doubt I’ll have time for a cruise in the foreseeable future, I was browsing cruises.com last night for the heck of it. I’ve always wanted to do a transatlantic cruise, and I looked up what was available in May of next year (since there’s a small chance I’d have time for one then, but I doubt it). Well, the first option that came up was a 13 day eastbound transatlantic cruise from Miami to Harwich (with stops in Bermuda, Portugal, Spain, and France) on Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas. For two passengers the total came to $1,293 which is less than $50 per person per day!
Now 13 days is a bit long for my liking, but jeez, $50 a day?!?!? I realize a lot of their money is made off of booze, gambling, etc., but the lowest I typically see is $100 per person per day.
Heck, this might just be a case where staying home is more expensive…. 😉
