How To Cruise On Less Than $100 A Day [Gallery] [VIDEO]

There’s nothing worse than someone coming back from a luxurious vacation and rubbing it in.  I’m not here to do that. I’m here to tell you about it luxurious vacation that really doesn’t cost that much in the scheme of things.  It’s gotten some bad press lately. It’s a little thing called cruising!

Although I almost lost something very precious on our trip, we just finished taking a cruise on Royal Caribbean.  This was pretty much an all-inclusive holiday.  The ship was the 14 story “Independence of the Seas“, and is the second largest in the world.  There were 4000 people on board. The ship had an ice skating rink, mini shopping mall, 20 bars, miniature golf course, art gallery, beautiful  theater with two shows a night, and food to feed a small European nation.  Let me show you around first, and then I’ll tell you how much it cost to do it

Oh, and now let’s talk food, food and more food.  Did I mention food?

Now how much would you pay?  I’m not kidding here -we paid $750/person for 8 days.  Off course, airfare was not included here, but regardless – you can get all of this and much, much more for less than $100/nite. If you want to look into it, here’s a random travel site that I found featuring Royal Caribbean.  They’re offering a 3 day cruise for $79 a nite.

This was an amazing time -plus it stopped on 4 Caribbean Islands as well.  Check it out. Don’t be a-scared.  You won’t have to sleep on the deck in a tent – don’t worry.
