These days, cruise vacation options are a dime a dozen. No matter what kind of experience you are looking to have, you are sure to find yourself with several different options from which to choose. We feel that more choice means greater competition and better service for clients, with each cruise line vying for your hard-earned vacation money.
With so many cruise companies out there, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one is the best for you. One of the easiest ways to rule out a few options is to bring your budget into consideration. As a result, we often hear the question, “What is the most expensive cruise line?” So we wanted to take a few moments to address this relevant concern.
If you’re looking to go all out, many cruise lines offer around-the-world voyages that cater to the most affluent individuals, seeking a reprieve from the day-to-day grind. Topping this list is Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Serenity. This ship makes a 102-day world cruise to the tune of $199,370 per person!
The Queen Mary 2 is known as one of the most expensive cruise lines in the world. For an around the world voyage that stops in 38 ports in 22 countries, the total price is $183,000. This comes out to a little more than $1,600 per person a night!
The Sea Dram 1 or Sea Dream 2 offers a more intimate 112-passenger experience. Chartering an entire ship for a week in the Caribbean will set you back $500,000. Or, if you prefer something smaller, a 12-passenger barge in France will cost $76,100 for the week.
The Regent Seven Seas Explorer made headlines as the world’s most luxurious cruise ship in 2016. Here, guests can enjoy a 72-day cruise of South America for a mere $139,999 per person.
For those looking to spend it all at sea, there are several ocean liners to fit the bill. But what does this mean for the average traveler?
A Cruise For Your Price Point
A discussion of the most expensive cruise lines would be nothing without a discussion of the most budget friendly cruise lines. So here are a few facts for you to consider.
Carnival Cruise Line ranks as one of the most affordable companies, with a 7-night voyage through the Caribbean coming in at $414 per person. Norwegian and Holland America Cruise Lines run a little less than $600 per person for similar trips.
