Cruise Lines: A Cost Comparison

While it's true that all meals and entertainment are included in a cruise's up-front price, little else is. Her'es a look at what some other products and services will cost you. (Prices for each line hold steady from ship to ship, except on Radisson Seven Seas; we've listed the Radisson Diamond to represent the line's pricing.) The lesson here is the usual one: Ask before you book.
