Budget-oriented easyCruise began accepting reservations
for their first no-frills program last week. The summer
Mediterranean program offers an a la carte approach with
rates that begin at about $55 per person per night.

David,
That is a kewl concept! When you mentioned Easycruise, I KNEW they had to be part of EasyJet group of companies. Last year and the
year before that I flew on about 40 of their Inter-European flights, they operate a bunch of late models 737s & A319/320s (I think!), I criss crossed across Europe on their no-frill airline for approx $40 each flight! I think I am gonna have to try their cruises this summer!

Basically it sounds like this cruise line is the "hostel" portion of the industry. And remember, a la carte can add up. Everything is extra - food, maid service, even linens!

Let's look at what is so often discussed in this forum, you usually get what you pay for.

For some this may be just the thing, for others, myself included, it's not worth it.We worh hard for that week or so of pampering. Still it's good there are alternatives.

Do you think they will offer a discount if you man the oars for a shift?

They will probalbly have life jacket rentals and upgrades available into life boats.

he he, i will watch this one with interest, some trade will be selling easycruise but my company (one of largest in uk) will not be touching, dont forget im big on the 'get what you pay for' thing!! anyways it will be a very interesting concept to watch evolve, and im sure, like most things, there is a market for it.
