This pretty much sums us up, as cruisers.

 

I wonder if the weekly cruise price includes all ship spending (ie: drinks, photos, excursions, spa, casino, ect.)? I don't think that it does.

Thanks for the statistics!  I'm a little surprised by the 44.6% of 25+ with earnings over $44,000 having taken a cruise.  I would have guessed much lower. Most people I talk to who haven't cruised have some pre-conceived notion that keep them from even considering cruising (too boring, norovirus on every ship, they'll get sick, etc.)… and I find it impossible to change their opinion with facts.  i guess it either appeals to you or it doesn't.

Matt, the average income is quite high and I wonder if it's skewed by including passengers who sail on the ultra luxury lines as the last US census suggests a much lower average income for the U.S. Unfortunately, when I read this in the paper, they did not disclose how they collected their data.

Ah, because my brain is focused on Royal Caribbean I assumed these stats were for RC cruisers.  This makes more sense if we are talking the whole breadth of cruisers in US.
