I am feeling sorry for myself because this holiday season will close and I will not have traveled anywhere. To really stick it to myself, I checked out the vacationstogo.com site.
It seems that a 21 night trip to South America on Holland America is more expensive than on Seabourn.
I would say the pricing is based on the itinerary but Seabourn is ultra-luxury. Holland America is going from Buenos Aires to Santiago, basically going to the end of the world. Seabourn is going from Buenos Aires to Manaus, Brazil.
If you take the Seabourn cruise, you are in Brazil during Carnival. Just saying! Also, gratuities and drinks including alcohol are included on a highly rated ship.
The Holland America cruise seems long. Most cruise lines do that itinerary in 14 – 15 days.
