Reading reviews and the Cruise lines' websites, I can't seem to find why norwegian Cruise Lines is less than half the price of royal caribbean. Do they have less service or a complete drawback that makes it not worth the price?

Hi Kim, and welcome to cruise-chat.com.

I know very little (OK -- nothing) about cruise line pricing. Which ships are you comparing?
Happy cruising!

If you're seeing double the price you're looking at the NY ports including Bayonne, NJ. Probably comparing NCL Dawn to RCI Explorer of the Seas to Bermuda. NCL has run Bermuda routes for a long time and RCI is newer to that market. One reason is that people want to try and new thing when it comes to town. Another is, there is more to do onboard EOS, like the ice rink, rock wall and Promenade, a mall through the center of the ship. Another reason is RCI is running 9 day itins and Dawn is only 7.

Welcome to cruise-chat, hope this helps.

Cheers, Neil

Usually, you get what you pay for. Are you comparing apple with apples?...I don't think so.

Can you be more specific? Are these on the same date, same length, same (or at least similar) itinerary?
