starlost: no there aren't cheaper. when they quote 35-40$ it isn't with taxes and fees. and carnival did away with their single supplement rate a few years ago so cruising solo is more expensive now. last fall i got a 4 night royal carribean cruise solo for $170 including taxes. transatlantic and reposition cruises are cheap until you factor in travel expenses. you can say i'm a cruise fanboy. cruises are always cheaper this time of year and if they are truly the cheapest ever on avg its by maybe $1 per night imho. some alaskan cruises were jaw dropping cheap starting last month until this season ends in about 2 weeks. oct-jan is always the cheapest except for thanksgiving and the xmas-new year period.
Outlaw2097: remember: the more you booze the better you cruise.so dont forget the screwtop wine you are allowed (or be smart and bring a wine opener with you...)after that, load up your empty mouthwash bottle(s) with the weapon of choice. buy the unlimited soda package.bam...better cruising on the cheap....or just have at it in port.
Outlaw2097: wingnut396:Disney Cruise Lines lets you bring as much sealed booze on as you can fit on your carry/roll aboard bag. They just don't allow it in checked bags as they say it may get crushed and break.Considering you are on a boat in the middle of the ocean with a bunch of screaming kids hopped up on Disney...this makes sense.
FrancoFile: Stuck in hot metal box, without power, with 1000 lardasses fighting over the last serving on the buffet while I come down with Norovirus. Even if it's free, I'm going to pass.
Rapmaster2000: It's a safe and simple way to see a lot of places for not a lot of money. It's kind of like a floating tour bus with the amenities of a mid-grade Vegas casino and the nagging security of an airport lounge.You probably dislike the stuff I like too. It's OK.

It's OK.I liken it to a hotel room that moves from city to city. Unless you have the kind of dough that gets you a private jet and porters, there's no better cheaper way to travel IMO.
dionysusaur: So Tom's lost a bit of box-office pizzaz. It can't have affected his rates that much./DRTFA
TigerzDad: Carnival is the Greyhound of the cruise industry....Cruise rates may be down, but the cost of airfare to get to and from the cruise continues to rise. It costs more to get there and back than the whole week cruise!

lindseyp: But what's the shocking truth as to how they fill all those unsold cabins?
