Factors Affecting 3 Day Cruise Cost


First off, we must note that certain factors will affect the cost of your Caribbean cruise package: 


1. The Caribbean cruise line you choose - Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Lines generally offer the least expensive 3-day cruise packages to the Caribbean. 

2. The time of year you travel - Your 3-day cruise cost will be far less if you travel during certain seasons, such as spring and fall and will always cost more during the summer and around any holiday. 

3. The type of cabin you choose - An inside cabin will cost less than an oceanview or balcony cabin, and much less than a suite.

Additionally, an inside cabin for 2 people with a pair of bunk beds, will cost more than any other inside cabins. 

4. The number of people in your family - Your 3-day cruise will cost more if there are 4 members in your family sharing 2 cabins than if all 4 members share the same cabin.

Yes, I understand that age matters. If the members of your family are of a certain age, it may be tough to have everyone in one cabin.

However, aim to keep family members in one cabin to minimize your 3 day cruise cost. 

Note: Caribbean cruise liners have a minimum number of cabins that hold 4 or 5 people.

Therefore, if your family numbers more than 3 people you should plan to book early to ensure that you grab one of the available cabins for your 3-day cruise. 


Understanding Posted Cruise Prices


When searching for a 3 day cruise cost or any length cruise, you will notice a posted price. That cruise price is always the base fare. The cruise base fare does not include government taxes and fees.

Additionally, the posted cruise price is what the first 2 people in a cabin will pay. If there are more people in your party, the posted price sometimes jumps to a higher rate and then everyone else in the cabin will pay less - usually the same amount.

There are some instances when the posted price remains the same for the first 2 guests in the cabin and the others pay less.

Let us look at what a 3 day cruise will cost for your family.
