The cost to rent a cruise ship

People ask "how much does it cost to rent a cruise ship"?

We know someone who arranges the rental of large cruise ships, and the price for a 4,500 passenger ship (in this case, the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas) rents for 9 million dollars per week (in 2007), plus a bar tab of three million dollars.

If you can get 4,000 paying customers you can make millions of dollars in profits by renting a whole cruise ship, but the risks are also high.

There are cruise ship rentals to suit every budget, anywhere from 2 million dollars per day down to $9.95 for a redneck cruise ship:
