Cruising?

Jump to last reply

I've never been on a cruise, but I thought that I'd look into the possibility despite the negatives of having less flexibility and more regimentation. River cruising seemed more likely to be interesting than going to sea so I searched through the major river cruise companies webs sites.

I was shocked! The prices were unbelievable. Then I realized that a 11 day cruise was really only 9 nights, etc. I was shocked even further. $800 up a couple per night plus incidentals? I realize that they include a lot but I've never taken a European trip that cost me anywhere near that. For that price, I could stay at the top hotels and go to the top restaurants in every European capital for that. And have money left over.

This is a serious question: am I missing something here? Why would I want to pay that kind of money just to ride around on a boat.
