I guess you have to factor all these in and then compare.
Fossil1 wrote:Hi Dave, I have taken on board what you say (excuse the pun) and agree that Saga are expensive. Could I also respectfully suggest that you are a little out of touch with prices. 14 days gratuities at £75 is very low. Celebrity would be $161, RCI $163.10, HAL $154 and Princess $161. The only cheaper one would be P&O at £43.40. (Source http://cruisetip.tpkeller.com/ ) As for the taxi up to 75 miles. Most cab firms in our area charge £2 a mile. I know it does not make up the difference but you then have to compare the standard of service on board and reviews suggest there is a difference. Saga like Fred Olsen have a very loyal customer base so they must have something that keeps their customers happy. I am hoping to do some ships visits to Saga early next year so will let you know the difference.

At the other end of the scale - I understand Disney cruises are also expensive. So maybe parents with kids are willing to pay that bit extra for the amenities and entertainment on Disney just as the mature feel safer on Saga feeling their needs and tastes will be catered for more than on a main line ship
