Cruise vs Land Vacation – Which is more expensive?

When deciding between a cruise vs land vacation, there are many factors at play including the overall costs.

While there are many different aspects of a cruise vs land vacation, contrary to what some travelers may think, cruising is generally a much more affordable way to travel in comparison to most land vacations.

Happy Traveler Comment
Just wanted to follow up and say what a pleasure it was to work with you [Darlene] and Cesar and I am thankful for the patient and prompt responses to several questions I had leading up to the trip. And the trip was awesome! I would also recommend Holland America. We did a cruisetour. The land tour schedule was intense at times, but worth it. I feel like we saw three weeks' worth in one week. And there were never any lines and very little waiting with Holland America having made all arrangements ahead of time. I can't imagine a better trip! Thank you! — Brigette and Bruce W.

In addition to having plenty of destinations to choose from, your luxury cruise ship is your floating resort with all the extras that you could ever hope for!

Because there is so much to do onboard a cruise ship, oftentimes travelers think that taking advantage of all the various amenities like world-class dining options, comedy shows, musical concerts, and activities will cost them extra.

This couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, cruising includes almost everything which makes it an easy choice when deciding on a cruise vs land vacation.

Your cruise fare includes:

· Your stateroom (with your own bathroom)

· Many delicious dining options (including room service)

· Various entertainment options

· Different group activities for people of all ages

· Childcare during the day (so you can relax while they play!)

However, there are a few things that are not included in your cruise fare that you might want to set a budget aside for. These include:

· Alcohol & specialty drinks

· Specialty restaurants

· Shore excursions

· Gratuities
