As the cost of other travel experiences surges, Wall Street Journal reports that one industry is lowering fares: cruises. According to Cruise Sheet, a web site that aggregates cheap cruise fares, there are nearly 2,000 cruises through the end of 2022 that cost under USD $100 a day for an interior stateroom.
Meanwhile, the average daily hotel rate is up nearly 20 per cent compared to 2019 levels, according to data from STR. Airfares rose almost 13 per cent between APR and MAY 2022 alone, according to the U.S. Labor Department. Wall Street Journal says that cruising is cheaper now that cruise lines are sailing their entire fleets – and the added capacity offers travellers more options and pricepoints.CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY
