You can save a little money by waiting until the last minute to book the Sky. The new per diem cost for two people is $259 a day, down from a high of $293/day in June. One of the itineraries has sold out in the cheapest inside category, but balcony cabins are still available.
If you waited until December to book your month-long sojourn on the Regal Princess in January 2017, then you waited too long! Two of the four 7-day sailings are sold out!
Now that we’re inside the final payment period, I’ve recalculated how much it costs to stay on the Royal Princess for the month of January 2017. The new per diem is now $266 per couple including gratuities.
My favorite cruise blog is written by someone who lives on cruise ships for half a year. She picks a Princess ship that she and her husband use as a home base, and they spend the winter months making back to back cruises on the same ship.
I have recalculated how much it costs to live on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, using the month of February 2017 on the Enchantment as an example. The total per day cost for two people has changed from $235/day to $229/day.
