Read an article last night that indicated easyCruise (the ultra-budget cruise line) has confirmed that the 170 passenger easyCruiseOne will be sailing 7 night itineraries in the southern Caribbean this winter. It will cost approximately $16 per day. Should be interesting to see how they do. Any cruise-chatters out there interested in testing the product?

No way. With all the extra-charges and a 10-hour flight from Europe to the Caribbean, I would not want to sail 7 days on a ship like this one !

Because if you like to get a bit of better cabin and calculate all the extras you have to pay for, it won't be that much cheaper than a 7-day cruise with Celebrity anymore. Then I really prefer to pay a bit more and cruise with a "normal" ship with all its comfort.

But it will be interesting to see how they will do. In the Med they stay overnight in ports. Will it be the same in the Caribbean ?

Hi Patrick,
It is my understanding that they will depart after midnight to arrive in ports by 10 AM the next morning. Apparently, there is more nighttime activity in the Med than in the southern Caribbean which accounts for the later departures over there.

Interesting itinerary. Martinique, The Grenadines, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados and St. Vincent. Here is what the website says about minimum stays and boarding.

"One week flexible itineraries this summer along the French & Italian Rivieras and this winter in the Caribbean for independently minded people in their 20s, 30s & 40s. You can board & depart anywhere along the route as long as you stay on the ship at least 2 nights."

Sounds interesting, only I think I am too old to qualify for it...VBG.

No way! I've not been on for a while and I can't believe they're putting her in the caribbean. I don't believe they will sell this to North American guests, and as Patrick has rightly said, Europeans are not going to fork out for the flight, transfers and extras, we may as well book a package on a 'proper' cruise.

So, who will buy it?....

Rosey,
It will be interesting to see how this whole thing unfolds for them here - I know it certainly is not my cup of tea - of course, I may have been tempted when I was 20 something - just to see what it was like.

It may be a great deal for some - but I'll pass. At this point in my life, I look for the most luxury I can afford!
