What’s Included in the Price of a Cruise?
Your accommodations, entertainment, meals and transportation to picturesque destinations all conveniently included in the price of your cruise. Only the most high end cruises lines charge for excursions but no one is stopping you from exploring the port town in which your ship pulled into. With a little preplanning you can save money by researching exactly what you want to see and save the cost of an excursion. Maybe you will find similarly minded fellow cruises and share transportation to a local beach or attraction. Just know that the cruise ship will sail away at the appointed time and it will be your added expense to “hop” to the next port of call.
Cruise lines have created a lot of creative ways to get more money from their passengers. They have become floating resorts with many of the extras adding up. Specialty dinning, expansive spas, concept bars, boutiques, internet usage, on shore excursions and photos. Let’s not forget the drinks! If you like more than a glass of wine with supper, you best consider a drink package.
