We are often asked about how much it costs to go cruising and what our budget is.
That is difficult to answer, as there are so many variables. But my short answer is that you will probably spend as much at sea as you do on land minus your home payments (rent/mortgage). That is because you will probably follow the same kind of lifestyle. If you are high maintenance, high rollers, you will spend a lot. If you are thrifty, you will spend little.
But to help you figure it out for yourself a bit more, here are my personal thoughts on the question.
