Good point, LisaP,
and I'm sorry--I should have included that;
the price for the 1976 Panama Canal cruise included a one-way charter flight from San Juan back to L.A.; that's all.
One thing that really stuck out was that back then the one price was good for ALL sailings, not like today where you have 15 different fare columns for the same cruise depending on date.
So it would be a fair comparison I picked the median price of all fare columns and the mid-level price in the cabin catagories.
All prices were plus taxes and port charges just like today.

Good question about the air. Air/Sea packages used to be a quite common way to book a cruise.

Well it only makes sense that cruises in the 70's were more expensive. Gauging from what I learned about cruising from TV, everyone that boarded a Princess cruise was some form of celebrity. Heck, Charo cruise almost every week!

And even the smallest cabin they were in was at least 1000 square feet.

Dave,
just read the Theodore Scull article in Cruise Travel magazine that you referenced above: I think I finally have a grasp of what is gt, grt, passenger/space ratio, metric ton, long ton, all that stuff that I just had vague notions about.
Thank you so much for the tip.

f-mattox,

It is a good article. It is helpful to look at cruise ships as cargo ships, where the bottom line is how much could you pack into the available space!

Only real difference is that real cargo doesn't complain!

I have a friend who lives in Nashville and is a pilot for DHL. He used to fly for passenger airlines but as he puts it "the flying schedule is easier and the boxes don't complain".
