Cruises reinforce summer offerings in the Caribbean

Royal Caribbean Group, Carnival Corporation and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings have increased their commitment to Caribbean and Alaskan destinations that will sail this summer.

As a result, this 2024, 202 ships will sail in the Caribbean, an 8% increase over last year. In Alaska, the number of ships sailing this summer is up 9.3% from last year. Increased supply in both regions is contributing to the summer price drop, according to Reuters.

Prices are down 21% compared to the same period last year for Royal Caribbean’s seven-day Caribbean and Bermuda itineraries. Meanwhile, prices are down 12% for Norwegian and 11% for Carnival for similar itineraries.

In Alaska, Carnival’s July and August itineraries are 20% cheaper than last year. Royal Caribbean sailings to Alaska are 6% cheaper in July and 12% cheaper in August than last year.
