The Miami Herald has a story this morning about the luxury cruise line Silversea, its newest ship and its new focus on “value.” That is to say, the pressures of supply and demand have forced luxury cruise lines to discount prices.
So it’s now possible, if you shop carefully, to get a week-long luxury cruise for around $2,000 a person. For this you get a truly all-inclusive experience, with drinks and tips, on a small ship with luxury accommodations and extremely attentive service. (No hairy chest or belly flop contests .)
This is still out of my league, but if you have the cash and the urge to splurge, now would be a good time to do it. Relatively speaking.
