Do You have an Upper Limit on Cruise Prices?

I was wondering if you have a price limit on how much you would spend on a cruise per day?  For me it varies depending on the type of cruise.  For a river cruise it would be higher because shore excursions are included.  My paddle steamboat cruise costs more per day than my mega cruise ship cruises do, also. I don't have any hard and fast rules for this.  I have never taken any of the luxury cruise ships yet and probably never will unless a great deal comes along.

Well, this is certainly a good topic.The general rule that we use is $100.00 to $125.00 per day per person. However, with the right cruise and the correct incentive that could easily change.From Luxury World trips to Short trips to nowhere it really depends on how much do you want to spend?

I'm with Johngold. We shoot for 100 dollars a day. But depending on the itenary and line I could go up.

I agree that $100 is a good figure. I almost always try to get under that unless as you say there is a cruise that may warrant a higher amount.

Unless, of course, I win LOTTO MAX...... Then look for me on the next world cruise leaving from anywhere.

I try and keep it at about 100 per day per person for a regular cruise. If it is something special I will go higher......

Looks like most of us have the same budgeting for a cruise and none of us springing for a suite.

I have never paid for a suite and I doubt that I ever will but I have learned to never say "never." You never know.
