The total cost for two people for an interior stateroom is $863.40. The total per person price works out to $431.70 CAD including all taxes and fees. Divided by the number of nights, the price works out to $143.90 a day per person.
Not only does that cost include your transportation on a beautiful five-star vessel, but it also includes meals, entertainment, snacks, and lodging. The only thing it doesn’t factor in is alcohol, but you may opt to purchase a drink package that can reduce the cost of your spending.
The ship is the five-star Royal Princess, which offers swimming pools, a basketball court, a tennis court, hot tubs, a live theatre, mini-golf, renowned spa treatments, movies under the stars, a jogging track, and much more.
