Prices for VOOM + Stream gone through the roof?!


Recommended Posts

sad state of affairs but I would not be surprised if that stays.

They are going to try and recoop their massive losses any way they can.

I think this is only the beginning. 

The days of cheap cruises will slowly end.

Kind of like when we started cruising....fresh squeezed juice was free along with all sodas & ice cream.

24 hour room service was always complementary and there was no such thing as a pay restaurant.

Pictures were $2.95 and when you played Bingo, the prize was determined by the amount of people that played...all money taken in was the prize.

No, we were not on the Titanic....but you can see how things are changing.

Now there are even things like Starbucks & Ben & Jerry"s onboard.  More & more pay venues.

   Will we still cruise...yes...but we now realize that on some cruiselines, the suites are a better bargain than you might think because of what they include. On R.C. there is a suite lounge with complimentary drinks in the evening. Some cruiselines include all day complementary drinks, room service, internet, etc.

   If you get a regular cabin and add the exorbitant price of a beverage package, you are getting up there but staying in a tiny cabin.

4 devices for a 9 day cruise in 2021 was $206.91. I just priced it for my 2022 cruise and it's quoting $566.91!  Here's hoping the prices drop as we get closer.

A bit of context may help others - you are comparing a great deal you happened to get to some weird (potentially incorrect) list price that won't last. Most sailings are bound to be ~$40/day for 4 devices (Stream) or less. Whatever pent up demand pricing there may be at the restart, is not going to last.
