The price varies for each cabin within a range of �205-�466 a suite being the most expensive. Here is the itinerary for this cruise. No Fly Cruise- NO fly cruises are the number one choices for families with young kids. They are very convenient as you don't have to go through airport and have no long flights to cope with.
