Very good question
As an example, we were looking at one on Azamara, basic balcony was $4,099 including gratuities and wine and soft drinks. Similar cruise on Oceania for 2012 was $5,300. They include the soft drinks and water and are now including your night in a hotel at your embarkation port. I've been pricing air for this september and from Vancouver it's running about $1,350 for an open jaw. That's putting them very close with the hotel included especially in an expensive port like Venice.
