And how does the Basic Cruise Cost per day: Room, Port, Taxes - compare to 6 - 10 years ago (since you are making essentially a cost comparison of food)?
I often see basic cruise costs for less than $100.00 per day per person. What is the cost of an AVERAGE hotel room per day? What do you get for that cost?
What do you expect for the price you are paying currently for a cruise when comparing it realistically to the cost you pay for an average hotel room & transportation TO the cruise?
A cruise INCLUDES the 'hotel room', transporatationn to multiple locations / Countries, entertainment & 3 plus meals a day. It sounds as though some people expect much More for the much Less they are most likely paying.
