COMPARE APPLES-TO-APPLES

When pricing luxury cruises it is important that you compare apples-to-apples (actually this is true for all cruises). Some cruise lines have several additional costs that will increase your total cruise cost above the base fare. In addition to ‘mandatory’ extra fees (like gratuities), most people pay extra for such things as Wi-Fi, shore excursions, soda (no soda isn’t free on most ships), alcoholic drinks, specialty coffees, specialty restaurants, and more. Plus, you have to add the cost of flights to and from the cruise ports, and the cost of at least one day for a hotel before the cruise to minimize airline delays which could cause you to miss your cruise.

These extra charges, which make the cruise much more enjoyable, can add hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars to the base cruise fare. So when budgeting for the total cost of a cruise vacation, sophisticated cruisers should add these expenses in and consider cruise lines that offer packages to cover these frequently overlooked charges.

REGENT’S ALL-INCLUSIVE PRICING ADDS TONS OF VALUE

​Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers an all-inclusive price that may appear high until you do the math. Their all-inclusive price includes free Wi-Fi, specialty restaurants, gratuities, alcoholic drinks, soda, bottled water (yes, many cruise lines charge for bottled water), shore excursions, plus in most categories it includes an one night stay at a hotel near the port prior to the cruise, and on international cruises, free business class airfare.

As the charts below show, once you add in all of these extras, Regent Seven Seas Cruises are highly competitive, and even cheaper than other luxury lines and even some premium cruise lines.
