SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Recent troubles involving Carnival cruise ships have led to incredibly cheap voyages out to sea.
You can now go on a cruise for less than it costs to stay at a Motel 6! Bloomberg reports that Carnival is now offering a four-day Bahamas cruise for a total of $149, and that includes meals and some beverages.
But would you jump on a deal like that?
Some people said they would, regardless of problems the cruise line had in the past, while others seemed skeptical.
"I've been on a cruise, I've had a lot of fun and yeah, it sounds like a great thing, but I think the way they handled that Carnival situation was atrocious; and I really wouldn't want to take the chance," Candice Porter of Wilbraham said.
Travel agents say other cruise lines are also dropping their prices, after the February incident when thousands of passengers were stranded on the Carnival Triumph after an engine fire.
The same ship was blown loose from its repair dock in Mobile, Alabama last week.
