New to the cruise market from the United Kingdom, easyCruise (www.easycruise.com) offers a no-frills budget approach to cruising. Basic cruise prices can be unbelievably low. Think specials as low as $175 for seven days for a recent Caribbean itinerary. However, once onboard easyCruise you must pay for everything, including all meals. Cabins are described as “minimalist.” Itineraries are limited and don't look for extravagant production shows, a casino, spa or much in the way of planned onboard activities. Think of easyCruise as transportation at sea; a way to reach ports not a resort-type destination in itself.
