Even if you have sworn to yourself never to sail again after Covid-19, there may be a price that tempts you. Mainstream cruise lines need you.
Amid sky-high hotel prices, the best accommodation deals this summer are at sea level, literally. Cruise review site Cruise Critic noted that prices for summer cruises are currently as low as they have been since the industry restarted in 2021. The current average cost of a five-night Caribbean cruise starts at $100 per day, according to Cruise Critic, including accommodations, meals and entertainment. That’s about 10% less than the average daily rate for a midrange U.S. hotel last month, according to hotel data provider STR.
