With more and more cruise lines building new ships, traveling to a new destination may be more affordable.

Since the number of cruise ships has increased, the law of supply and demand often kicks in and some prices have dramatically lowered as a result. For example, a 5-night Bahamas Carnival cruise now starts at $269 per person. 

Cruises to China are also on sale. Some tour operators are offering a 10-day tour complete with airfare starting at $499. But keep in mind, you’ll end up paying more because the tour operator will charge $190 for your visa and $100 service charge to cover gratuities. 

These limited time offers start in Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle or New York. New York is slightly more expensive to travel from, but the port of Los Angeles is now a much busier cruise port.

In fact, a dozen cruise lines will call at the Port of Los Angeles throughout 2018, including Norwegian Cruises’ NCL Jewel, NCL Star, NCL Bliss and Princess Cruises’ Island Princess, Star Princess, Emerald Princess, Ruby Princess and Coral Princess.
