What's the REAL cost of a Cruise?

Jump to last reply

Several recent posts have alluded to the practice of "nickel-and-diming" and misleading passengers by inferring that a cruise is "almost an all-inclusive" vacation for the price of the ticket. So, as a service to those interested, how about some input from returning cruisers about what their ticket price was and what the total cost of their cruise was? I know figures vary by what you choose to do as "extras", but this can be informative to first-timers who may need to consider the "true" cost, or better put: true-er cost of a cruise. Thanks.
