Seems like on a per day per person basis (fare, taxes, fees, tips) to be a pretty expensive "cruise"...

It can be, but if you’re a family of 4 like we are, it can be a rock bottom bargain with the current discounts available. For example, the July 25th Sailing is listed starting at $119. There’s a kids sail free promotion. There’s also a 25% off promotion. So, that makes the cruise fare roughly $45 per person. That’s $22.50 per diem. It doesn’t get much cheaper than that. Add $88 per person for taxes and port charges and your grand total is $133 per person.
 

I think that the taxes are disproportionately high ($88 to go to Freeport on a 2 night cruise. We paid $125 on our last cruise to visit 4 ports on a 7 night cruise), but even with that, this 2 night getaway is still a super cheap getaway.

The Bahamas has high taxes. Mexican ports have relatively low taxes.
